Abstract:

Cabtrack is a proposal for a novel form of urban transport using small self-routing cabs operating under automatic control on a network of segregated tracks. The report, which is one of a series on Cabtrack studies, concentrates on methods of control and operation of junctions in the network. A variety of combinations of methods of queueing and of strategy at a merge are studied with the aid either of queueing theory or computer simulation. Comparisons are made and a preferred solution, the static queue, described. Brief mention is made of a computer simulation of a complete network using static queues at junctions.
