Automated Transit Networks, which are systems of driverless vehicles running on fixed track ways with all stations located off of the main line, are poised to become a major component of the transit terrain.? With offline stations, traffic throughput is no longer inhibited by station platform operations so high traffic densities can be achieved with the appropriate control technology.? Being able to thus operate with smaller cars, future transit service lines will be buildable for a fraction of the cost of today’s heavy rail systems.? Furthermore, with the ability to be powered by electricity delivered via the track infrastructure, a totally fuel-free form of transportation will be the result.? This talk will discuss the potential and the challenges of such systems.
