LONG RANGE RESEARCH AND DEVELOPMENT PROGRAM FOR INDIVIDUAL TRANSPORTATION SYSTEMS

A LONG-RANGE RESEARCH AND DEVELOPMENT PROGRAM FOR INDIVIDUAL TRANSPORTATION SYSTEMS IS DESCRIBED. THREE PHASES ARE OUTLINED: SYSTEMS ANALYSIS, PRESEARCH AND DEVELOPMENT, AND THE PROTOTYPE TESTING. THE SYSTEMS ANALYSIS PHASE DETERMINES THE BASIC CRITERIA GOVERNING THE PERFORMANCE OF ANY SYSTEM OF INDIVIDUAL TRANSPORTATION AND DEVELOPS A GENERAL SYSTEMS CONCEPT. IT PROVIDES THE FRAMEWORK FOR THE OTHER TWO PHASES OF THE PROGRAM. THE ULTIMATE OBJECTIVE FOR THE TOTAL PROGRAM IS THE DETERMINATION OF THE MOST PROMISING INTEGRATED SYSTEMS CONCEPTS AS A BASIS FOR COMPLETION OF THE RESEARCH FROM WHICH A PROTOTYPE OR PROTOTYPES OF INDIVIDUAL TRANSPORTATION SYSTEMS CAN BE DEVELOPED FOR EVALUATION. THE LONG-RANGE RESEARCH AND DEVDLOPMENT PROGRAM FOR TRANSPORTATION SYSTEMS WILL NOT BE ACCOMPLISHED IN A SHORT PERIOD OF TIME OR BY ONE AGENCY. THE GENERAL PLAN HAS BEEN FORMULATED. AS THE PROGRAM DEVELOPS, IT IS ANTICOPATED THAT THERE WILL BE PARTICIPATION BY STATES, INDUSTRY, AND OTHER INTERESTED GROUPS. /AUTHOR/
