ARTS (Automated Road Transport Systems)
CTS (Cybernetic Transportation Systems)
The Automated Road Transport Systems (ARTS) is an urban mobility concept based on two ideas: car sharing and automated capabilities with door-to door solutions. This paper presents a description of the integration of the last large demonstration (3 months) in the city of San Sebastian together with a risk evaluation study. The main safety issues regarding the proposed track and vehicles are addressed, taking into account the maximum speed allowed per segment and comfortable accelerations for passengers, in order to avoid unacceptable risks. Appropriate modifications have been carried out in the infrastructure in order to adapt the new vehicles’ performance to future smart cities. A description of the general control architecture and technical/functional specifications of the ARTS involved in the demonstrator is presented. This paper describes the achievements and results of this demonstration, showing the viability of this kind of vehicle in the near future.
