5.0 System Architecture:


In an emergency, the same hydraulic mechanism that rotates a Grid vehicle's tires from the upright (vertical) position to the (approximately) .3 g Grid contact (horizontal) position can increase pressure contact on the inside of the Grid Rail in order to provide better braking contact with the Grid Rail's upright surfaces. Rapid deceleration could then be as great as needed to avoid a collision (perhaps as much as 8 g) with gentle, but immediate, deployment of proper body and head restraints. Explosive airbag deaths and injuries would be eliminated.
