The "transport revolution" that occurred over the last hundred years completely changed our notion of time and distance. It is the development of high-speed transport that has made the world truly global, by cutting long and painful travel for up to a couple of hours in a comfortable train or plane seat. But even now transport does not stop improving, making the world more accessible. EtSetera will talk about incredible technologies that have either already become a reality, or will become it in the near future.
MY WAS NOT MY MACHINE. With a significant degree of certainty, it can be argued that in the future the car will be unmanned, electric and public.
The development of autonomous control systems is practiced by virtually all leading automobile concerns and technology companies like Google. The main problem, say the developers, is to accustom the driver to the fact that an autonomous control system can and should be trusted. However, unmanned cars have already managed to light up in road accidents.
But the most unexpected feature of the car of the future lies in the fact that it is unlikely to be the sole property of the driver. The main vehicle will be a car on call: he ordered a car to the entrance, sat in the salon, drove under the control of the robot to the destination, and the car, meanwhile, went to the next customer. Ford is working on this taxi.
THE TRAMWAY IS REMAINING. Trams are still the main transport in many cities, and engineers do not stop experimenting with them. The vanguard here is China.
For example, in 2017, the Chinese company CRRC presented in Zhuzhou City a trackless tram powered by electric batteries. The tram travels along the "virtual" rails, which represent a special marking applied to the roadway. The power reserve is about 25 km, and the time of full charging of the batteries is 10 minutes.

TRAIN ON HYDROGEN. Hydrogen trains can soon become a reality in Germany. In July this year, local authorities issued a permit for the full commercial operation of the hydrogen compounds Coradia iLint, developed by the French company Alstom. No harmful emissions are produced - only water vapor.
CHILDREN'S MASK. However, the future of urban public transport systems came much sooner than expected - thanks to Ilona Mask and his project Hyperloop. The Hyperloop transport system is a pipe several meters in diameter, inside which a low pressure is maintained. Due to reduced aerodynamic drag, a passenger or cargo capsule inside the pipe can accelerate to a speed of 1000 km / h and even more.
METRO FOR PEDESTRIANS. But not only Mask is thinking about tunnels - the NBBJ studio from the US is developing a project for a pedestrian subway. To move passengers through the tunnel, it is suggested to use travolators - moving tracks like those used in airports. It is assumed that the line will have three tracks with different speeds, and the track closest to the platforms will be slow enough so that passengers can make a landing and disembarkation on the go.
ALL IN THE SKY. Most innovative ideas appear in the field of air transport: several companies around the world are developing their versions of flying taxis.
Earlier this year, Alpha One was tested by Airbus, in the summer, the New Zealand Cora was tested. Their unmanned taxi called Volocopter is tested in Dubai. True, all these projects have one thing in common: while it is not clear how it will be possible to solve the problem with the use of such transport in the cities.
Reports on new developments in the field of transport appear almost daily. Some of them remind fascinating toys from science fiction films, while others pursue purely utilitarian goals: faster, farther, more eco-friendly, cheaper. Which of them will be in demand by society, will show the future.
