Transportation Technologies Definition

Transportation technologies are systems, processes and devices that move goods and people from one place to another across or through land, air, water, or space.

what is a transportation system
What is a Transportation System?
  • An organized set of coordinated modes of travel within a set area.
  • Transportation systems are usually run by the local government.
  • Transportation systems also refer to the partnership of businesses to deliver passengers, food and other goods using multiple modes of transportation.

  • Most transportation systems include:
    • A way to carry a load
    • A dedicated pathway
  • The transportation device (a vehicle or a fixed container) carries the load.
  • The pathway can be:
    • A permanent structure such as:
    • An invisible path such as:

  • Goals: Transport people and materials from one place to another.
  • Inputs: People, materials transported, machines and structures in the system.
  • Processes: Managing and organizing the system.
  • Outputs: Successful transport, impacts on society and the environment.
  • Feedback: Periodic checks of the schedule, evaluation of the completed process.

subsystems of a transportation model
Subsystems of a Transportation Model
  • Each form of transportation is a complex system of parts. These systems can be broken down into subsystems.
  • The subsystems we will consider:
  • Structural
  • Propulsion
  • Guidance
  • Suspension
  • Control
  • Support
structural subsystem
Structural Subsystem
  • Structural Subsystems are the parts of a vehicle that hold other vehicular systems and the loads they will carry.
  • Examples: Car frame and body, fuselage, boat hulls
propulsion subsystems
Propulsion Subsystems
  • A propulsion subsystem are the parts of the vehicle which enable a system to move.
  • Convert energy into power to move

the vehicles

  • Examples: Sails, jet engines,

electric motors

guidance subsystem
Guidance Subsystem
  • Guidance subsystems are those parts of a vehicle which provide information required by a vehicle to follow a particular path or perform certain operations.
  • Provide information about location, speed, operating conditions, rules and laws
  • Examples: Compasses, maps, road signs, GPS
suspension subsystem
Suspension Subsystem
  • Suspension Subsystems are the parts of the vehicle that support and/or suspend the vehicle in its environment.
  • Examples: Helicopter rotors,

springs of cars,

airplane wings,

boat hulls,

electro-magnetic fields

wheel and axles

control subsystem
Control Subsystem
  • Control Subsystems are the parts of vehicles that are used to change a vehicle’s directions and/or speed.
  • Examples: Gas pedal, rudders, steering wheel
support subsystem
Support Subsystem
  • Support Subsystems are those external operations that maintain transportation systems.
  • These include maintenance, life support, economic and legal support systems.
  • Examples: Airports, train stations and gas stations
