  • Title: Airport Cooperative Research Program (ACRP) A03-07: Guidebook for Measuring Performance Automated People Mover (APM) Systems at Airports.
  • Budget: $300,000.
  • Funding Source: National Academy of Science (NAS) / Transportation Research Board (TRB).

  • The objective of the research is to develop a user-friendly guidebook for measuring performance of automated people mover (APM) systems at airports. The guidebook should identify a set of performance measures and associated data requirements for APM operators at airports to assess and improve performance, compare APM systems, and plan and design future APM systems. The performance measures should address the efficiency, effectiveness, and quality of APM systems at airports, particularly focusing on impacts on APM passengers and on airport performance.
