Towards the ultimate public transport system - the Dynamic Autonomous Road Transit (DART) systemThis poster introduces the concept of the Dynamic Autonomous Road Transit (DART) system. A systematic methodology framework that incorporates all related research areas related to DART development is elaborated in detail. The final results are qualitative and conceptual descriptions of the characteristics of the DART system. Being highly integrated with the existing public transport system, DART applies the latest available vehicle- and traffic-related technologies and integrates fixed and flexible routing concepts with the use of flexible fleets of modular vehicles enabling an efficient, attractive, and a comfortable transit service.
