2getthere realises automated transit applications, ranging from Automated People Movers to Shared Autonomous Vehicles. The systems are based on over 30 years of experience with automated vehicles in different demanding environments. The first applications were Automated Guided Vehicles in warehousing environments indoors, serving as a basis for the development of port applications (ECT container terminal) and eventually automated transit applications.
2getthere’s proprietary technology includes the supervisory system TOMS (Transit Operations Monitoring and Supervision), the vehicle controls and (patented) key components. In addition 2getthere owns the IP with regards to the 4-to-6-passenger PRT vehicle and 12-to-24-passenger GRT vehicle, designed in cooperation with Zagato. This allows for manufacturing to be performed locally. The 2getthere system life cycle development is in accordance to the EN50126 and ISO26262 standards.
2getthere’s first APM system was developed in 1995. Pilot projects were realized at Amsterdam Airport Schiphol (1997) and business park Rivium (1999). The extended Rivium system was equipped with 2nd generation GRT vehicles in 2006, and is still operational today. In 2002 the temporary Floriade application was realized, featuring 4-passenger vehicles. The first permanent PRT system, at Masdar City (Abu Dhabi) opened to the general public on November 28th 2010.
