General note

Description of system by students from the project: The intercell system is a high density, high comfort, environmental system for mass transportation applications. The basis of the system is a human environmental cell whose form was developed through research in human factors, structural engineering, acoustics, environmental psychology, and people traffic planning. The resulting cell form interlocks to maximize use of available vertical space. This arrangement accommodates contemporary structural and locomotion systems and is ideally suited for future linear induction systems. In the rail configurations with a 75-foot coach 116 first class passengers could be comfortably seated for extended travel, 200 for commuter vehicles.
