In this report a high accuracy positioning system is investigated for use in the Superbus. The Superbus project is an effort to apply a new and complete conceptual approach to public transport. It consists of a vehicle, logistics and infrastructure. The positioning system for the vehicle is to have a horizontal position error, which will not...

Vehicle handling and stability are very important at high speeds especially when the vehicle has a weight of about 6 times a normal luxury passenger car as in the case of the Superbus which travels at 250kph. In this paper the high speed performance of the Superbus will be analyzed. First the model will be discussed. Then, a number of the...

It's not a car, it's not a bus, it's not a truck, and it's not even a super stretch limousine. What is being built in Delft is the much-discussed Superbus, which is to travel from door to door, reaching speeds of 250 kilometres per hour. This summer this new form of public transport is to enter service in Beijing during the Olympic Games.

At the hand of a case study alternative energy sources, methods of transportation and their effect on the electricity grid oncefossilfuels have been depleted is discussed. Three methods of sustainable transport are presented. The energy requirement for each is calculated as well as the requirements from the electricity grid for traveling a 200km...

The Superbus (Fig.1) is a new public transport vehicle designed for comfortable, flexible and sustainable transportation. The Superbus, which drives at 250 km/h cruising speed on its dedicated infrastructures (the supertrack) and at conventional speed on existing roads, is safe, sustainable, and able to transport passengers and goods from point...

The present paper presents the structural design of the Superbus. First the overall requirements are described and analyzed, with respect to loads (static and dynamic), stiffness and functional requirements. In order to fulfil the relative targets, two different solutions have been defined and analyzed in the preliminary design. From those, the...

In this paper the structural design and the manufacturing aspects of the Superbus (Fig. 1) are presented. First the major aspects of the structural design are described alongside with the FEM model utilized. Then the materials utilized will be highlighted. Finally, the manufacturing of the various parts, namely chassis, bodywork and glazing will...
