VECTUS uses small, lightweight, driverless vehicles to carry individuals, or small groups of people, non-stop from the origin station to the destination station. Stations are located on a network of lightweight guide-ways and are off-line (i.e. located on a side track), meaning that vehicles waiting for passengers at the station are not blocking the traffic flow on the main track.
Consequently, waiting times for passengers are negligible and there are no intermediate stops during the journey, hence reducing the user's total travel time. Vehicles are personal and travel on individually selected routes - yet the capacity of VECTUS is comparable to many other light public transportation modes due to the three second headway possible between vehicles. Furthermore, since the system is operating 'on demand', energy is used only when transportation is requested.
