Simulation models have been developed in Sweden to analyze large PRT networks. A new control concept is introduced called `point-synchronous control'. It is a practical way of realizing quasi-synchronous control. The new control method is compared to synchronous control and found to be more efficient as well as more robust to disturbances. Point-synchronous control have been applied to possible PRT networks for the city of Gothenburg.
