Abstract (en)

After entering a destination at a terminal (2) with a keyboard (2.2), a user is told on a screen (2.1) with an indicator (B3) about a get-on point and a vehicle allocated for his journey. He then makes his way to the get-on point (B). Meanwhile, a first vehicle approaches the get-on point as indicated by a blinking indicator (B1). The user knows that this first vehicle is not the vehicle assigned to him. He only gets on board if the appropriate indicator (B3) is blinking.

Abstract (de)

Bei diesem Transportsystem mit mehreren autonomen Fahrzeugen gibt der Benutzer sein Fahrziel an einem Terminal (2) ein. Anschliessend wird der Zusteigeort und das für die Ausführung des Fahrauftrages vorgesehene, zugeteilte Fahrzeug in der Form eines Bezeichners (B3) auf der Terminalanzeige (2.1) dem Benutzer mitgeteilt. (B) bezeichnet den Zusteigeort und (3) bezeichnet das den Fahrauftrag ausführende Fahrzeug. Der Benutzer begibt sich nun zum Zusteigeort (B). Inzwischen trifft auf dem Zusteigeort (B) das erste Fahrzeug ein, was auf der Anzeige (4) blinkend mit dem Bezeichner (B1) angezeigt wird. Der Benutzer weiss, dass das erste Fahrzeug nicht sein zugeteiltes Fahrzeug ist. Er steigt erst ein, wenn der Bezeichner (B3) blinkend angezeigt wird. <IMAGE>
