Design on Passenger Ground Wheel-Rail Cable Car in Transport System
Cable cars are usually used to transport passengers in difference elevation between one point to another point. Usually, cable cars are suspended on the cable and moves by the mobile cable. In this paper, a new type of ground wheel-rail cable car was designed and the performance of this mechanism was analyzed. The transport system of a passenger ground wheel-rail cable car sets wheel-rail devices and cable car wheels ride on the rail on the ground, which is driven by the mobile cable. This is a new type of passenger organizational form, and there are many advantages of this transportation system, such as safe, reliable, energy-saving , environmental protection and economical benefits.
