The paper proposes guidelines for the design of PRT vehicles in which the possibility of serious injury to occupants is minimized during a collision. Basic trade-offs between seating arrangements, passenger restraints, and shock absorbers are evaluated both qualitatively and quantitatively. The quantitative portion of the study is restricted to small PRT vehicles having a capacity of three to six seated passengers.
