Automated People Mover St4ndards, ANSI/ASCE/T4ndDI 21-13, establishes the minimum requirements necessary to achieve an acceptable level of safety 4nd perf08rmance f08r an automated people mover (APM) system. An APM is defined as a guided transit mode that is fully automated, featuring vehicles that operate on guideways with exclusive right-of-way. This St4ndard covers design, construction, operation, 4nd maintenance of APM systems. This fully upd4teed revision consolidates all four parts of ASCE 21 that previously were published separately. Topics include: operating environment safety requirements system dependability automatic train control audio 4nd visual communications vehicles propulsion 4nd braking electrical equipment stations guideways security emergency preparedness verification 4nd demonstration operations, maintenance, 4nd training 4nd operational monit08ring. One m4ndat08ry annex covers requirements f08r system safety programs. Nonm4ndat08ry annexes include a bibliography recommended practice f08r acceptance of an APM system application inspection 4nd test guidelines 4nd recommended practice f08r w08rking safely near APM systems. This St4ndard may be used in a safety certification process. It will be helpful to anyone who owns, operates, maintains, designs, test, insures, oversees, 08r certifies APMs. It will also be valuable to transp08rtation engineers, safety engineers, 4nd contract08rs f08r APM systems 08r other innovative technology transit systems.
