Abstract:

The object of the report is to assist designers, architects or planners in laying out track for a Cabtrack network. The constraints governing curves and speed changes are discussed in terms of suggested maximum acceleration and jerk limitations. Figures and tables are given to show the minimum space required for curves, accelerationdeceleration lanes, sidesteps and vertical height changes. The effect of reducing speed past cabstops on the length of cabstops and system average speed is also discussed.
