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)

ANSI/ASCE/T&DI 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.
