Session C4 - Standards and Standardization, US and abroad

October 29 2010 , 10:15 am - 11:45 am

Application of regulatory and safety requirements to PRT systems is critical to any authority having jurisdiction over such an installation. Currently, there are PRT installations being implemented in other countries to codes and standards that may or may not necessarily be accepted by authorities within the USA. This session will focus on 1) what codes and standards have been used on other PRT applications outside the US; and 2) how these standards might be compared and then equally applied to the requirements that are currently accepted within the US automated people mover or other transit industry.
