We must now think about a new form of urban transport to meet the 21st century's challenges. In Europe, several programs are looking at technologies based on automated transport over existing and possibly new road infrastructures. These transport systems require a hierarchical network with very-high-capacity links, along with medium- and low-capacity links, optimization, and demand control. The objective is to provide door-to-door transport to anyone (or anything) at any time but at different costs, depending on the modes used.
