PRECISION DOCKING DEMONSTRATION AT HOUSTON

This article describes a magnetic marker guidance system for bus operations developed by the California PATH program. This automated precision bus docking system was demonstrated for the Houston Metro system. The vehicle was automatically steered laterally across one lane and parked parallel to the curbside, consistently, at a 1.5 centimeter distance, without touching the curb and without concern for loading conditions.
