Specifications include, but are not limited to:
1. Technical ability to develop, pilot, test and install an electro-magnetic guidance system
using commercially-available components. The system should allow for driver
interference, tolerate normal wear and tear, and shall not interfere with existing vehicle
components. Any system should be fault tolerant as safety of the passenger and
operator are paramount in any system development. Respondents should address their
installation and testing process for all tasks, including:
a. Modifying the 60’ all-electric BYD buses with a steering actuator and electromagnetic strips; and
b. Installing in-lane magnets in all types of traffic separation, including dedicated,
BAT, and mixed traffic, along all BRT corridors.
2. Process to monitor and report the system’s electrical draw and potential impact on the
battery life. Respondent should discuss how the modification of the electrical system
may affect the warranty of the vehicle.
