Ultra PRT runs safely, reliably and efficiently.
From the passenger’s point of view the interface is uncomplicated and intuitive
90% of Ultra pod passengers are served within a minute thanks to the system’s comprehensive operation procedures that ensure it runs safely, reliably and efficiently.
From the passenger’s point of view the interface is uncomplicated and intuitive; a touchscreen panel enables them to choose their destination while an automated voice-over talks them though the process. Once on board they can relax as the vehicle takes them straight to their destination.
Three layers of control form the heart of the Ultra pod system and ensure that it functions to maximum efficiency and without error; these are:
- Central Synchronous Control – ensures vehicle journeys do not conflict
- Autonomous Vehicle Control – uses laser sensors to guide the vehicle on its path
- Automatic vehicle protection system – ensures vehicles don’t make contact with each other
