The Bimodal tram is developed in KRRI (Korea Railroad Research Institute). This vehicle will be used in the public transportation system. The Bimodal tram has the advantages of both bus and train. Bus system has the advantages of flexibility of the routes delivering passengers to the destination and easy accessibility. Train is to meet the scheduled arrival and massive public transportations. The vehicle is the rubber tired tram and is all wheel steered single articulation. The vehicle can be automatically operated by navigation control system (NCS). For the automatic driving, the vehicle lanes will be marked with permanent magnets that are buried in the road. The control algorithm developed for navigation control has to be verified before being applied in the vehicle. In this purpose, we design the simulator for controller test of the bimodal tram.
