COST AND PERFORMANCE RELATIONSHIPS FOR RUBBER TIRED AUTOMATED SYSTEM DESIGN

The paper discusses the cost sensitivity of the vehicle/elevated guideway system to the important vehicle operational and performance characteristics. For the vehicle system, relationships for obtaining a first cut cost estimate of an electrically driven automated rubber tired vehicle as a function of the vehicle's physical & operating characteristics are presented. Also presented are important vehicle performance characteristics that affect the fleet size and hence the vehicle system capital cost.
