Overpopulation is a big problem, especially in big cities.

And with everybody wanting to own a


car, it will lead to more road congestion.

But imagine a mode of road transport that can change its shape depending on the street or road
its travelling through, and you won't be too far away from describing gyroscopic public transport
vehicles.

What consists of a Gyroscopic Public Transport?


These are basically large pods that are hoisted on flexible legs that can expand as well elongate
according to the traffic’s demands. The whole structure is supposed to be balanced on
gyroscopes and be very flexible.

Future Towns & Cities

Overpopulation is a big problem, especially in big cities. And with everybody wanting to own a
car, it will lead to more road congestion.

But imagine a mode of road transport that can change its shape depending on the street or road
its travelling through, and you won't be too far away from describing gyroscopic public transport
vehicles.
Now when we think about the future of urban mobility, we only think about flying cars and
aerial pods, right? And we obviously hope that future mobility will make road
transport redundant. But that's not going to be the case. At least not in the beginning, as we
transition from road to air-based transport -- we will still need to solve the problem of rising
congestion on land.

Gyroscopic Public Transport can be a solution to that problem.

In layman terms, a gyroscope is snipping round top, that can turn on its own to stabilize itself.
Gyroscopes are generally used in aeroplanes and spaceships for compasses and autopilots and to
maintain their alignment.

Don't Miss

In layman terms, a gyroscope is snipping round top, that can turn on its own to stabilize itself.
Gyroscopes are generally used in aeroplanes and spaceships for compasses and autopilots and to
maintain their alignment.

The pods can be of any size and will travel over ordinary cars thus bypassing traffic on the road.
So if implemented, public transport will hover above us and will not take as much space as a
metro's pillar.
Dahir Insaat, the company that came up with the idea of gyroscopic transports have been known
to make absurd future mobility idea. If the ideas are ever implemented, we will get the future that
we have been promised very soon.

According to Insaat, the model has been tested and can be built with the construction of future
cities.

Luxury will obviously not be compromised. While the pods will have the row seating plan that
planes have, there will be luxurious pods that will have salons and lounges and maybe even a
TV.

Technology

The main feature of a gyro car is its ability to fit into the existing road infrastructure while
remaining independent from the rest of traffic flow on the roads. Thanks to the small bearing
section and light composite body, such a car can quickly move down a special fortified strip
between lanes and over the rest of traffic, creating almost no interference for no vehicles. The
lane separator between lanes is used to create a railway like system that can be integrated into the
existing infrastructure. Thanks to highly ramped-up flywheels located underneath, a gyrocar
maintains stability even in an event of a collision with other vehicles. It’s continuous operation is
achieved with the help of two independent generators and one back generator battery pack,
which ensures that no power failure of rotary drives occurs even when both primary generators
are stopped. The gyroscopes in these cars will be initially powered by flywheels that are wound-
up in the morning and throughout the day it can used the energy supplied by solar panels that are
mounted on the roofs. The gyroscopic cars will have telescopic legs which will allow them to
navigate underneath bridges that require low height clearance. Check out the concept video
below to see the Gyroscopic Transportation in action.

gyroscopes would be initially powered by flywheels wound-up in the morning, and would
continue to be powered throughout the day from energy supplied by solar panels mounted
on the roofs of the cars. pods are stilted on expandable legs that can both contract and enlarge
depending on the context, meaning they can pass under bridges and vehicular overpasses with
ease. inside, passengers sit in rows just like they would on a subway or bus, or — alternatively
— ride-in-style inside luxurious pods that include comfortable couches and TV sets.

The futuristic public transportation vehicle will have just two wheels for greater maneuverability.
It will avoid getting stuck in rush hour traffic by maneuvering between lanes.

The self-balancing cabin can be controlled with a joystick, and its glass dome will offer
commuters an entirely new and unique perepective on travel. Public transport for urban
commuting will make no audible noise while you relax in its comfortable seats.

The design has a huge potential to provide safe, economical, efficient, and environmentally
friendly conveyance.

this was designed for the urban commuter looking for an entirely new and
unique driving experience. With just two wheels, the glass-dome cabin is
self-balancing and can be controlled with a joystick instead of a
steering wheel.

the lane separator between lanes satisfies all of the requirements for the
creation of this mode of transportation. It will inevitably take its rightful
place as a modern urban form of transportation. It is just simply too
tempting to be able to travel without traffic jams at any time of the day or
night.

It is a friendly vehicle that is always nearby and is never late. It makes no


audible noise, and when you travel on it, you will be able to relax in one of
its comfortable seats.

It can elevate high enough on its supports to safely pass over most vehicles, running along a
special fortified strip between lanes. The car itself has a lightweight body and can either be
designed with mass transit interiors to fit large groups of passengers, or as luxurious lounges.

The gyroscopic automobiles can also pass alongside high population areas, parks and even
alongside people strolling down pedestrian walkways. It is designed to be safe in both ecological
and physical terms and it cannot cause serious injury. From comfortable private cars to public
trains. Thanks to the use of modern materials and self balancing mechanism, the creation of such
a automobile is already possible. The gyroscopic transport truly has the potential to supersede
buses, streetcars, subways, and taxis in the cities of the future, as it is both practical and useful
for solving real life problems.

Disadv

The system looks futuristic and the


previews pretty cool, with several
levels that help increasing the
fluidity, but it doesn’t seem very
realistic. In fact, how would they
secure these rails so they don’t
smash the cars or people crossing?
How do they get people in and out
of the buses quickly at that height?
Not even mentionning the physics
of holding such a heavy structure
with two simple poles.

Principle-

Gyroscopic Transport system relies heavily on a gyroscope, which consists of a metal wheel
mounted on an axle, the wheel and an axle spin freely secured in a metal frame. This simple
device can behave in most unexpected ways. The components of this simple mechanism are
obvious and don’t seem to have any special capabilities. When try to stand it on one end and it
falls over and try to suspend it sideways and it drops. However, it can defy gravity when you
spin the wheel and the behavior changes. The first things to notice about spinning gyroscope is
that it resists attempts to change its position. When you try to tilt or rotate the gyro, it provides
resistance. When the spinning wheel is in action, it creates a force that allows it to stand upright.
The force created by the spinning wheel of a gyroscope can also allow it to levitate when it is
hinging sideways from a surface. This phenomenon is so powerful that a spinning gyroscope can
even balance on a string. The rotating wheel has angular momentum, similar to the momentum
that a stone flying through the air. To change the direction of the stone requires a force.
Similarly, changing the orientation of the rotating wheel requires force. The spinning wheel
prefers to stay oriented as it is and resists any attempt to change that orientation. The fact that a
gyroscope can maintain a particular orientation in space is very useful. In an aircraft, a guiding
system uses a spinning gyroscope to monitor and control the orientation of the aircraft. The
gyroscope is suspended in a special cage that allows it to maintain its orientation independent of
the aircraft’s position. The spinning gyroscope provides stability and navigational information.
A gyroscope-
It works on the principle of conservation of angular momentum, and consists of a spinning wheel
supported on an axis that is free to move on its own. The spinning wheel, or rotor, is mounted on
a pivoting support that allows the rotation around a single axis, called a gimbal. By using two
gimbals at a time, one mounted inside the other, the gyroscope gives the rotor three degrees of
rotational freedom.
As long as the rotor of the gyroscope is being spun, the gyroscope will keep pointing in the same
direction. Gyroscopes are mostly used as a basis for inertial navigation systems, meaning that
with the help of three very sensitive accelerometers one can detect the motion of the vehicle on
which the gyroscope is mounted, on all three axes.
The main reason they seem to defy gravity is the effective torque applied to the spinning disc has on its
angular momentum vector. The influence of gravity on the plane of the spinning disc causes the
rotational axis to "deflect". This results in the entire rotational axis finding a "middle ground" between
the influence of gravity and its own angular momentum vector. Now, remember that the gyroscope
apparatus is being stopped from "falling" towards the center of gravity by something in the way -- like
your hand, the frame/gimbals or a table, for example.
Raw Materials

The materials used to manufacture a gyroscope can range from relatively simple to highly
complex depending on the design and purpose of the gyroscope. Some are made more precisely
than the finest watch. They may spin on tiny ball bearings, polished flecks of precious
gemstones, or thin films of air or gas. Some operate entirely in a vacuum suspended by an
electrical current so they touch nothing and no friction develops.

A gyroscope with an electrically powered motor and metal gimbals has four basic sets of
components. These are the motor, the electrical components, electronic circuit cards for
programmed operation, and the axle and gimbal rings. Most manufacturers purchase motors and
electrical and electronic components from subcontractors. These may be stock items, or they
may be manufactured to a set of specifications provided to the supplier by the gyroscope maker.
Typically, gyroscope manufacturers machine their own gimbals and axles. Aluminum is a
preferred metal because of its expansion and strength characteristics, but more sophisticated
gyroscopes are made of titanium. Metal is purchased in bulk as bar stock and machined.

Factors affecting
a. RIGIDITY — The axis of rotation (spin axis) of the gyro wheel tends to remain in a fixed direction
in space if no force is applied to it.

rpm- revolutions per minute


b. PRECESSION — The axis of rotation has a tendency to turn at a right angle to the direction of an
applied force.

c.

d. other factors include Speed of rotation, diameter of flywheel and edge weight of the wheel.
