Agenda
  • Background/ History
  • Key System Elements
  • Applications

3
Transport on Mars
4
Objective
  • To provide public transport that is more
  • effective
  • convenient
  • and sustainable
  • than the car

5
The ULTra Transport System
  • Personal Rapid Transit (PRT)
  • Features
  • One way guideway network
  • Off line stations
  • Giving on demand non-stop journeys and excellent
    operational flexibility

Stations
Transport that is waiting for you rather than
you waiting for it
6
Vehicle Features
  • 500 kg Payload
  • 4 passengers
  • 40 kph
  • 2 kW continuous power
  • (When moving)

7
Energy Use
ULTra provides 70 carbon emissions benefit over
car transport and 50 carbon emissions benefit
over train/bus
At 2kW it is practical to use 100 solar power
for ULTra

1 km Cardiff Test Track with all the features
of a full application 4 Test Vehicles Plus
Bristol test track
  • Supported by
  • Department for Transport
  • Department for Trade and Industry
  • European Commission
  • Cardiff County Council

10
Infrastructure Features
  • Overheads lower cost than equivalent footbridge
  • At-grade lower cost than equivalent footpath
  • 2 m U-form guideway
  • 0.45 m depth to minimise visual intrusion
  • Capacity equal to a lane of motorway

1/6th to 1/10th cost per lane of road/rail
infrastructure
11
Ease of Installation
  • Patented small scale infrastructure optimised for
    PRT use
  • Elevated structure lower cost than equivalent
    footbridge
  • Modular design
  • System accepts small (12.5 ft) radii and high
    grades (gt10)
  • Installation of complete three bay elevated
    section achieved in 4 hours

12
Capacity Comparison
  • Seats Frequency Capacity
  • Bus 50 5 mins 600 seats / hr
  • Light Rail 200 10 mins 1200 seats / hr
  • ULTra 4 3 secs 4800 seats / hr

13
Passenger Experience
  • 725 questionnaires completed to date uniformly
    positive response
  • System has excellent response from disability
    groups
  • In in-depth passenger trials 100 of passengers
    found ULTra experience pleasant (43) or very
    pleasant (57)

14
Safety
  • Target safety higher than 2009 targets for Rail
  • Consultation with HMRI from early stages of
    project, supported by independent safety experts
  • Ongoing discussion with the Inspectorate
  • Concept safety case letter of no objection July
    2000
  • ULTra design and operational concept accepted as
    feasible and reasonable by HMRI
  • Consent from HMRI to carry the public Jan 2003

15
Security
  • Waiting time at stations essentially zero
  • Well lit open stations
  • CCTV coverage vehicles, stations track
  • Emergency button in vehicles to communicate with
    control
  • Customer service staff

16
Low Risk
  • Prototype testing successfully completed
  • Test track with all city application features
  • Uses existing proven technologies
  • Consent from the UK Rail Inspectorate to carry
    the public
  • Maturity programme complete before initial
    operation

17
Current Status
  • Automatic Vehicle Operations
  • guidance demonstrated
  • route selection demonstrated
  • stopping accuracy demonstrated
  • empty vehicle management simulated
  • Station Layout and Berth doors demonstrated
  • Basic Vehicle Ergonomic Design demonstrated
  • Infrastructure demonstrated
  • Passenger Trials very successful

Selected for application at Heathrow
18
Application Opportunities
  • City Transit
  • Airports
  • Special Applications
  • New Developments

Heathrow
  • ULTra connecting Northside passenger and staff
    car parks to CTA
  • Benefits to BAA
  • Reductions in emissions
  • Improved passenger service
  • Efficient use of space
  • Value for money

Tunnel
CTA
21
Emissions saved, tonnes/year
22
Conclusions for LHR
  • ULTra excellent solution to landside transport
    needs of LHR
  • Excellent value for money, especially compared to
    APM
  • Saving in operating cost of 40 over current bus
    service
  • Typical passenger time saving of 60
  • Premium service for passengers
  • Valuable reduction in emissions

23
Integration of ULTra to existing linear Systems
Typical station demands of 1 to 3 million trips
per year per station ULTra is well matched to
these demands and thus to providing effective
enhancement of today's linear systems.
24
Conclusions
  • ULTra offers
  • innovative technology
  • very positive response from passengers
  • low capital cost compared to other options
  • ease of installation and flexibility for growth
  • In testing at Heathrow 2007, live 2008
  • a system matched to the aspirations of Cities for
    the 21st century
