M. Loots Accelerated walkway systems
Literature survey, Report 2001.TT.5542, Transport Engineering and Logistics.

In this report the conventional walkway systems and the newer accelerated walkway systems are discussed. Technical models and the manufacturers of these walkway systems are catalogued along with descriptions for their use and the demands placed on them. Additionally, safety and security standards during maintenance and operation are detailed to protect people and objects from damage. When a walkway system is no langer feasible, a switch to faster means of transport becomes necessary. Possiblities of transport methods for various distances are discussed and the potential use of walkway systems as a link between those modes of tansportation is investigated. Finally, determining the motor power requirements of a walkway system is explained.
