Description

Automated People Mover Standards establishes the minimum requirements for the design, construction, operation, and maintenance of an automated people mover (APM) system. An APM is defined as a guided transit mode with fully automated operation, featuring vehicles that operate on guideways with exclusive right-of-way. Collectively, this three-volume standard will assist the industry and public by expediting the approval and release process and facilitating the use of an APM system.

Part 2 provides general information on vehicles and propulsion and braking systems (PBS). Topics dedicated to vehicles include vehicle capacity and load, structural design, coupling, fire protection, and electrical systems. PBS topics include methodology, functions, component design and testing.
