INTRODUCTION

It seems that rising population in china has caused a lot of problems for efficient time spending and transportation uses. However, upcoming hi tech transportation system called straddling bus helps us to use time efficiently and less time to be stuck on traffic. Putting normal buses on roads only causes more traffic but putting these straddling bus would get rid of all traffics caused by the public transit systems.

HERE IS AN EXAMPLE IN A PICTURE OF WHAT STRADDLING BUS LOOKS LIKE

DESIGN

The bus will run along a fixed route and its passenger compartment spans the width of two traffic lanes.

Its about 4.5 meters above ground with two levels. Passengers have to get on 2nd level and about 2 to 2.4 m above ground its hollow so cars could go through under the bus. It runs on electricity or solar energy. Passengers would sit on the top level (the bus can accommodate 1200 to 1400 people) while cars drive beneath them.

It will travel at a speed of up to 60 km/h (37 mph).

Different versions will carry up to 1,200 passengers each with the larger versions consisting of articulated sections to facilitate going around curves Straddling bus is completely powered by municipal electricity and solar energy system. In terms of electricity, the setting is called relay direct current electrification. The bus itself is electrical conductor, two rails built on top to allow the charging post to run along with the bus, the next charging post will be on the rails before the earlier one leaves, that is why we call it relay charging. It is new invention, not available yet in other places.

The bus will also be equipped with alarms to warn cars traveling too close to the bus and signals to warn other vehicles when it is about to turn. It would also have inflatable escape chutes similar to those of an aircraft the bus will run along a fixed route and its passenger compartment spans the width of two traffic lanes.

GREENER, CHEAPER & FASTER


Why it is Greener & Cheaper? Straddling bus is completely powered by municipal electricity and solar energy system.

It is estimated that the usage of straddling bus reduces Carbon emission to 860 tons per year. The set here is super capacitor, a device that can charge, discharge and store electricity quickly. The power it stores during the stop can support the bus till the next stop where another round of charging takes place, achieving zero toxic gas throughout the process.

FASTER

It will travel at a speed of up to 60 km/h (37 mph).

ESTIMATED COST

The cost of construction 50 million renminbi, or $7.4 million, for one bus and about 25 miles of route facilities is roughly one-tenth what it costs to build a subway of the same length and estimated to reduce traffic congestion by 2030%. The Chairman of the company has said that it will only take a year for one to be built.

ADVANTAGES Eco-friendly. Reduction of traffic problems. Low energy consumption. Loss of life's during accidents is very less. Construction and maintenance cost is less when compared to other transit systems.

CONCLUSION

The resolution of population is increasing day by day. Obviously the usage of vehicles is also increasing resulting in the problem of traffic and accidents. With the increase in usage of vehicles the pollution is also increasing rapidly. In order to overcome this, different techniques have been implemented in the same way advanced technique (straddling bus) is the most recommended one .
