Swift Tram: High-Speed, Automated People Mover
Winner of the 2013 Create the Future Design Contest's Transportation & Automotive Category.

Swift Tram is an emerging rapid transit system that is automated (driverless) and elevated. System operators can offer scheduled and/or on-demand service, which passengers can easily arrange at kiosks or with their smartphones according to the time they wish to arrive at their destinations. The system's electricity is either grid-supplied or it may be supplied by renewables. Swift Tram is working with NASA on aerodynamic issues, with the National Renewable Energy Laboratory on energy efficiency, and with the University of Colorado on engineering validation.
