Abstract

With the present study we propose a system of integrated transport of a city of around 40000 inhabitants. The city that we have considered was built at a time of less activity than today, with the consequence that the roads are restricted and are not able to cope with the growth in transport and traffic. A solution is proposed in the form of a driver-less monorail on the existing roads that crosses the roads at about 4 meters in height on a one-way circular run at regular intervals. It is proposed that the new system will integrate with the existing railroad and other ground transport. From the analysis of the flows of present traffic and projections of those in the future, it has been able to optimise the integrated management systems using standard algorithmic methods
