POWER AND PROPULSION CHARACTERISTICS OF THE DULLES TRANSPO '72 PERSONAL RAPID TRANSIT VEHICLES

The Power and Propulsion Characteristics of the four different PRT vehicles demonstrated at Transpo '72 are determined by using analytical descriptions, manufacturers' data, and the test data from the Post-Transpo '72 Test Program. A comparative analysis of the four systems is presented. The performance features necessary to adequately describe each vehicle's power and propulsion characteristics are also discussed.
