DUAL MODE - WHAT IS IT?

DUAL-MODE-WAS IST DAS?

Dual mode vehicles may be controlled by the driver, or they may run along special lines without a driver. Nowadays there are mechanical steering devices and electronic regulators. With both systems it is possible to drive more accurately and more comfortably than is the case with the normal driver. For this reason, the introduction of dual mode vehicles is recommended where lanes are narrow (tunnels, mines) or where it is necessary to save or protect personnel (machines on uneven pavements). In the longer term, there may be automatic transport of lorries on suitably equipped motorway lanes. /TRRL/
