Public Automated Cart Transportation
The Future Transport - Public Automated Cart Transportation
Pact is a mode of transportation which can be an alternative to roads. It helps in decongesting the roads by providing an alternate track for the vehicles to locomote. It works on the principle of magnetic levitation which is a system of transportation that uses magnetic field to suspend, guide and propel vehicles rather than using mechanical methods, such as wheels, axles and bearings.
Pact uses a special suspended surface called CART which uses magnetic levitations to glide over a guideway surface. These carts carries vehicles placed over them from one pact station to another. The vehicles placed over the cart get temporarily attached to the cart with a special lock making the cart and the vehicle to move along the track as a single object.
Vehicles can use the pact track and cart by first going to pact stations and then getting attached to the specific cart. People can tell their destined pact station and rest while they cruise to their destination. Pact even has some specialized vehicles which are permanently dedicated to the pact tracks like pact bus and pact cabs.
It is the best suited transportation system for future cities.
In other words, PACT is a combination of Mass Rapid Transit, Personal Rapid Transit and a roadways facilitator.
