Autonomous Vehicles & People Mover Systems

Vertix has extensive experience in the evaluation and design of People Mover Systems (PMS), and are on the forefront of emerging technologies including the use of autonomous vehicles. Vertix can work with your team to understand the demand and needs of the specific situation and tailor the technology requirements accordingly. We can assist with the following:

  • System selection
  • Alignment Study
  • Ridership Projections
  • Mode Share Study
  • Pedestrian Modelling of Nodes, Hubs, and Stations

Vertix has been studying and evaluating the feasibility of connecting the Mandai precinct with a People Mover System (PMS). Various types of the systems, including buses, Light Rail, Automatic People Movers (APM), and Group Rapid Transit (GRT) have been studied to determine the appropriate PMS to be adopted taking into account various factors including expected ridership, projected park visitorship numbers and cost of the PMS and operational requirements of the Mandai parks. The study also includes alignment optimisation, concept design, interim transport plan, and integration plan with existing infrastructures for the PMS.

We have also recently completed a study of a PMS for Ninoy Aquino International Airport (NAIA) in Manila, Philippines. This study involved the evaluation and conceptual design for a PMS connecting all of the airport terminals. Detailed evaluation of APM technologies including Bombardier Innova and Mitsubishi Crystal Mover, electric Bus options, light rail and GRT autonomous vehicles. This study included the complexities associated with working in landside and airside restricted spaces, security considerations, reliability expectations and crossing an airfield.


Manila Ninoy Aquino International Airport (Naia) Expansion Masterplan

Vertix Asia-Pacific Pte Ltd worked with an international team to develop a masterplan for the expansion of NAIA airport in Manila. This included capacity expansion within the 3 existing terminals and development of 2 new terminals and concept development for a People Mover System between the 3 terminals.

Mandai Transport Planning

Vertix Asia-Pacific Pte Ltd (Vertix) conducted the full transport master planning for the Mandai project, including Traffic Impact Assessment (TIA), design of all transport infrastructures, microsimulation of vehicular and pedestrian traffic, and study on the ridership forecasts of a future People Mover System (PMS).
