New concepts in transportation

  1. 1. New Concepts in Transportation
  2. 2. INTRODUCTION Only time will tell, but many designs for concept transportation methods of the new concept *energy-efficient technology • increasing safety • mostly just making things more convenient for users. • Here are some of new concepts for the transportation.
  3. 3. Driverless car • Perhaps the most famous potential future transportation method is Google's driverless car. • The cars use video cameras, radar sensors and laser range finders to drive. • They've already hit the road, logging more than 300,000 miles without an accident, Google engineers recently reported.
  4. 4. Ford Traffic Jam Assist • Google's not the only company looking at driverless cars. Ford is working on the technology too, specifically for slow-moving situations. • Leveraging technology already available that allows cars to self-parallel park, the company envisions helping drivers during one of the most stressful times of any commute: sitting in a traffic jam. • Ford Traffic Jam Assist gathers information about how far away the car in front of it is, keeping the driver a safe distance, but moving whenever it is able to. Ford hopes that in the future, you could eat your doughnut and drink your coffee, using both hands, during that horrible morning rush hour commute.
  5. 5. Airbus 2050 concept plane • Debuting at the Paris Air Show last year, Airbus unveiled the company's concept plane for the future with some pretty funky design features. • Most striking is the large panoramic roof that makes up the front portion of the plane, which Airbus says could be made of a biopolymer that would allow passengers to control how much light is let into the cabin. • Inside, passengers would have personalized zones with high-definition holographic displays to hold meetings, or even play in a virtual golf game.
  6. 6. Cruising the high seas • Cruise ships of the future will leverage various technologies that make them more energy efficient and provide passengers new experiences, researchers forecast. • Massive boats with sails and that use ultra-highly efficient liquefied natural gas- powered engines and solar panels are predicted for cruise ships of the future. • These features would be combined with a tri-hull design to increase stability and create new areas on a ship for passengers
  7. 7. GM EN-V • General Motors has a take on the driverless vehicle too, but its version isn't a car, rather it's the EN-V, the electric-networked vehicle. • The EN-V is a two-wheeled battery-powered vehicle meant for urban transportation. • It drives on its own using sensors to detect its surroundings and wireless communications to position itself in the city, which GM says make it ideal for dense urban environments because of its compact size and zero emissions.
  8. 8. MACH High-speed Bus concept • Even if there are personalized self-driving vehicles, there will still be a need for public transportation, and that's where the high-speed bus designs come in. • The MACH bus is aerodynamically designed to prevent wind friction and is powered by hydrogen fuel. It features a fluid suspension system to keep the ride nice and smooth. • Because the bus will be traveling faster than most other vehicles, its safety features are enhanced, including having active and passive safety monitors and controls, meaning it's always alerting the driver of potential hazards. • To keep it light, the bus has been built on a carbon-fiber chassis to maximize strength and minimize weight. And of course, it's red, just like the old-school London double-decker buses.
  9. 9. Straddling bus • This concept bus design avoids that inconvenience for drivers. • Asian researchers have developed the idea of a "straddling bus," which would be elevated above the roadway allowing vehicles to pass underneath the bus to keep the flow of traffic moving even while the bus makes frequent stops.
  10. 10. Solar Sailor • That's the thinking behind the Solar Sailor, a series of boats of various sizes that use solar energy to propel the ships. It works for anything from ferries to private yachts, all the way up to commercial shipping vessels.
  11. 11. Road train • In this concept, passengers in traditional cars would link up with other cars going in the same direction to create a road train. • European researchers have created early versions of the technology, which require a lead vehicle that subsequent cars then follow using both imaging and communications technology. • The line of cars all follow and mimic a lead car, creating a centipede of cars potentially, with vehicles being able to enter and exit the line as needed.
  12. 12. Solar Impulse • Solar Impulse 1 is a Swiss long-range experimental solar-powered aircraft project, and also the name of the project's two operational aircraft. The privately financed project is led by Swiss engineer and businessman André Borschberg and Swiss psychiatrist and aeronaut Bertrand PiccardIt conducted its first test flight in December 2009. • Engine type: Electric motor, Range: 1,541 km • second aircraft, completed in 2014 and named Solar Impulse 2, carries more solar cells and more powerful motors, among other improvements. In March 2015, Piccard and Borschberg began an attempt to circumnavigate the globe with Solar Impulse 2, departing from Abu Dhabi in the United Arab Emirates. • The aircraft was scheduled to return to Abu Dhabi in August 2015 after a multi-stage journey. By 1 June 2015, the plane had traversed Asia and on 3 July 2015, it completed the longest leg of its journey, from Japan to Hawaii. • Lesser speed is the disadvantage.
  13. 13. Metro Trains, Light Metro & Monorails
  14. 14. Bullet-train
  15. 15. Cable Cars
  16. 16. Battery Powered Vehicle
