Title:
TRACK TRANSPORT SYSTEM
Document Type and Number:
WIPO Patent Application WO/2019/142640
Kind Code:
A1
Abstract:
In an unmanned driving system that does not depend on a driver, if an obstacle detection car travels in advance of a transport car for transporting passengers, there might be various problems relating to the detection of obstacles that intrude between the two cars: For example, there have been cases where a person or object fell onto a track during stoppage at a train station. To provide a solution to this problem, the present invention aims at providing a track transport system that is capable of dealing with obstacles that intrude between the transport car and the obstacle detection car. This track transport system, in which an obstacle detection car travels in advance of a transport car to detect obstacles on a route, is configured to suppress intrusion of obstacles between the obstacle detection car and the transport car from when the transport car stops at a station up to the departure thereof, or to detect the obstacle having intruded therebetween.
