Designing APM Circulator Systems for Major Activity Centers: An Interactive Graphic Approach

by Jerry B. Schneider, Dep of Civil Engineering, Seattle, United States,

Document Type: Proceeding Paper

Part of: Automated People Movers IV


An interactive graphic computer program, called Circulator, is used to design an APM circulator system for a large and complex major activity center. The design process is intuitively guided and makes use of several graphic displays of the spatial performance of alternative designs. A design/redesign process is illustrated that shows how performance improvements can be obtained by generating and evaluating a series of successively better design solutions.
