Observations are forwarded on the characteristic life-cycle of ″new″ technologies. Key determinants of past successful and unsuccessful innovation efforts are identified and relevant theories examined. The methodology is then used to evaluate the present innovation efforts towards automation of urban transportation, in particular Personal Rapid Transit.
