Abstract

See full text

The present invention teaches a monorail vehicle apparatus and method for controlling roll attitude, lateral location, and loading of a monorail vehicle traveling on a non-featured rail exhibiting substantial profile variation by the placement of the vehicle's center of gravity and without the use of additional mechanisms such as springs or suspensions. The design is especially well adapted for travelling along curves by using at least two trucks connected by a linkage mechanism.
