Sky Tran Presentation Transcript

  • 1. By: Alex Burkle
    Sky Tran: Innovative Transportation for the 21st CenturyInformative Speech
  • 2. Transportation
    Interstate
    Taxi Cab
    Subway
    Trains
  • 3. Food for thought
    The US consumes 19.5 million barrels of gasoline every day
    57% of our oil used in the US comes from foreign imports
    The average car generates 1.5 metric tons of CO2 green house gas emissions annually
    Currently there are 765 automobiles per 1000 people in the United States, highest in the world
    The total government transportation expenditures equates to aprox. 150 billion dollars annually
  • 4. A new transportation method being developed by NASA and Unimodal Inc.
    Designed with five goals in mind
    Speed
    Efficiency
    Safety
    Cost
    Reliability

  • 5. How it works
    Two passenger vehicles
    Climate control
    Web access
    Entertainment options
    • Small Portals
    • 6. Located every quarter mile
    • 7. No large structures or obnoxious stations
  • How it works cont.
    • Magnetic wave
    • 8. Driven forward by an electric induction motor
    • 9. Harnessed by the guideway
    Maglev “G” way
    Located overhead of loading portals
    Speed approximately 100 mph
  • 10. What are the benefits?
    No wait time, on demand
    High speed and 3 lane highway capacity
    More safe to passengers
    Low cost to build, run and maintain
    Efficient uses for more than just people
  • 11. The Solution
    Sky Tran is 19 times cheaper than light rail and highway transportation systems
    Cut down on state and federal spending
    Renewable energy sources decrease the rate of green house gas emissions
    Cuts the need for cars in very polluted cities creating less emission
    Oil dependent no more
    Each car is fuel efficient producing 200 mpg fuel economy
    New smart grid technologies would decrease American oil imports by 70%
  • 12. Conclusion
    By identifying major problems, showing you an innovative idea and a way to solve these issues, I hope you have a better understanding where transportation is headed in the near future
