Automated People Mover Standards, Part 1, ASCE 21-05 (Published 2006)
ANSI/ASCE/T&DI Standard 21-05 is Part 1
of the four-part Automated People Mover (APM) Standards, which establish the
minimum requirements for safety and performance for APM systems. A comprehensive
revision of ASCE Standard 21-96, this Standard includes minimum requirements for
the design, construction, operation, and maintenance of APM systems.
Automated People Mover Standards, Part 2, ANSI/ASCE/T&DI 21.2-08 (Published 2008)
21.2-08 constitutes Part 2 of a four part standard which aims to establish the
minimum set of requirements necessary to achieve an acceptable level of safety
and performance for an Automated People Mover (APM) system. Collectively this
three-volume standard will assist the industry and public by expediting the
approval and release process and facilitating the use of an APM system. Part 2
provides general information on vehicles and Propulsion and Braking Systems (PBS).
Topics dedicated to vehicles include vehicle capacity and load, structural
design, coupling, fire protection, and electrical systems. PBS topics include
methodology, functions, component design and testing.
