The vehicles drive manually a few km on ordinary roads in order to get to the rail system. The driver programmes the ruf to know its destination and this information is transferred to the system when the vehicle gets near to the monorail.

The system guides the vehicle to enter the guideway without waiting and at 30 km/h. From there on the driver can relax until he get close to his destination where he takes over control again and drives manually to his destination.

The main part of the trip is automated and the system knows when to turn right or left and when to get off. The automated part is very safe and energy efficient. The travel speed is typically 120 km/h on average. Travel times are short and predictable.
