Autonomous - Rail Rapid Transit (ART)

A self-driving, electric tram that’s guided not by tracks, but a double-dashed line painted on the street.

ART system is an intelligent rail system that runs on sensors and rubber wheels creating a cross between a train, tram and bus. This new type tram has a dual redundant multi-axle steering system that ensures the vehicle is traveling along the fixed track. It has a lane departure warning system that reminds the driver to pay attention to safety when the vehicle deviates from the track.
