Six years ago, China showed the first concept of a futuristic bus, which can carry the car by itself, as an economical means to deal with a lot of traffic and congestion on the road. Today, this concept has evolved from miniature models to a fully functional prototype that was presented in the city of Qinhuangdao. The bus is called "Elevated Transit Bus" or TEB, to in short, it was designed to carry up to 300 passengers, its length - 22 metres width Ц 7.8 metres height Ц 4.8 metres. These dimensions allow TEB to pass under bridges in China, as well as to pass two cars with height up to 2 meters under the bus in both lanes.
TEB has a bottom which rests on 16 support beams, they in turn are based on eight pairs of railway wheels, which determine a vehicle on the road so that there is always enough space under the bus for passing cars. The bus can reach a top speed of 40-50 km/h, but on the test area 300 feet, the car went extremely slowly and carefully.
Prototype is really a proof of the practicality of this idea in real vehicle Ц there are no traffic lights, flashlights, the ability to pass the bridges, pedestrian paths, and everything that we saw in the initial CGI models.
Notwithstanding these large limitations (not turn off, only goes on the highway), the car is impressive, it`s not animation and not a virtual show. Inside is spacious, and from the driver`s seat has a beautiful view. Song Yu Zhou, inventor and chief engineer of TEB, says to reporters from WCC Daily, that if the product successfully passes the test (within a year), only then is a new kind of vehicle appears on Chinese roads. Of course, must be approached with a healthy dose of skepticism to this Chinese project Ц he still has a lot of technological and economic challenges that must be overcome. Still have a lot to do before the same widget will be profitable.
China has adopted a program to stimulate the production of electric cars China is a big country, there are a lot of cars on the roads, all of them work on traditional fuel with little exception, everything would probably continue to develop, if not for the desire of the government to reduce environmental pollution. After all, now, if you do not develop an alternative transport system, in the future in China on the streets without a gas mask does not go out....
In China, working on the project of the submarine kamikaze The Chinese military-industrial complex is developing an unmanned submarine for long-term Autonomous use. Such a submarine can perform a much wider range of tasks than a conventional submarine. The underwater unmanned vehicle will be able to dive to a greater depth, it will have a greater stealth during various military operations. The size of the new model submarine will not be small, it will be the same size as an ordinary boat with a crew....
the December 26 in China have started in deal the too long railway pathway on which will be able to move the speed train. The Route is listed as G502 and has connected two high developed in industrial attitude of the city Guanichzhou and Pekin. The Distance between these two cities 2 298 km. The Train преодолеет this distance on velocities in 300 km whole for 8 hours. Usual composition spent on the whole way day, but also that if average velocity on route was 100 km. China constantly modernizes the railway and are chosen area with big passenger turn just. Basically this industrial centres. On given time in China already marketed too long pathway of the speed message.
Today in Ambience composition number 801 successfully went to the first way from station Peking aside Guanichzhou. Departure time 9 mornings. Simultaneously on one and the same route go three trains with difference at time. One came out of Pekin, the second came out of Hanchzhou, but the third came out of city Siani.
After started the new railway general extent speed pathways in China reached 9.3 thous. km, but after pair of the years on calculation she already will as minimum in two times long.
