heavy monorail uses the same high capacity vehicles as heavy rail. The primary difference is it is just the roadway is one elevated/underground concrete beam rail instead of two steel ones. HM is still grade separated, third 'rail' power, etc.

Heavy monorail is useful where climbing is essential (Chongqing) and/or cost considerations are a concern (Osaka [the manufacturer], and I suspect Sao P). Far different from the first monorail in Seattle, Orlando/Tokyo Disney, or Las Vegas's tourist monorails who in one day of operation probably could not fill up the capacity of one Chongqing CRT train.

Metro is a metro regardless if it is traditional heavy rail, heavy monorail, or automated; as long as the vehicles are 'heavy' providing crush passenger loads it is metro/subway no matter the technology.

me neither. I wonder how the other trains move out of the depot. May be a stupid question: is there a section of flexible track which can connect each individual tracks with the main one? If yes how does that track move?

Look at the photo.
The concrete beam, just under the vehicle, is composed by 3 ou 4 pieces which can do a translation on transversal steel rails and so can move to be in front of the others beams entering into the depot.
There are also transversal steel rails under the tracks on left side

Yeah the dark colored beam is the flexible rail that are made up by multiple movable sections.

You can see some of the CRT installations on aerial images in Google Earth/Maps
simple paste the coordinates into search field :

Line 1 phase 1 depot : 29.546519,106.46011 - note the external (Diesel?) traction for electric trains


line 1 phase 2 depot : 29.616483,106.382521 - should look better meanwhile


line 2 depot : 29.502002,106.498588 - nice picture Emloto !

line 3 depot : 29.63439,106.55517 - quite large compared to line 2


line2/3 second connection point : 29.37888,106.534982 ( not far away) line 2 poles from West - line 3 poles/station from North
