With the advent of technology resembling to the transport sector, it is not impossible to one day the world will be connected with an incredible system.
This new “tube transport” is not just aiming to become regional in operations but instead focuses to go international.
This is the idea behind ET3’s tube transportation concept, which it calls the “mag-lev limo.”
The transport system would be capable of traveling from New York to Beijing in 2 hours.
As of today, transportation of the future is being developed such as: autonomous electric vehicles, flying cars, and the futuristic pods that make up the Hyperloop are just a few notable examples.
And now there’s another idea vying to be the next generation of public transportation, and while it might look something like the Hyperloop.
The ET3 CEO Daryl Oster explains why this concept differ to other transport medium.
“ET3: we call it a mag-lev limo, where it’s a car-sized vehicle that operates in a network of tubes much [like] cars on a freeway,” Oster told TechRepublic at the 2017 Smart Cincy Summit.
“But, it would be international and global in scope,” he added.
“Our vision is being able to travel from, say, here in Cincinnati to the Taj Mahal in under three hours for 50 bucks,” Oster added.
The developing tube transport will be a network of tubes that serve as a “freeway” which can be accessed via various points along its many routes.
While the ET3 is still in the concept phase, the Hyperloop has already moved further along the innovation highway.
Since the idea was first pitched by serial entrepreneur and innovator Elon Musk in 2012, there are now two notable companies developing their own Hyperloop in the United States to Dubai.
One of these is Hyperloop One, which has already finished its test track in Nevada, as well as established plans for its future transport system in the U.S.
The transport breed Hyperloop One also hopes to develop a Hyperloop network in Dubai, with pods capable of traveling on roads.
Meanwhile, Hyperloop Transportation Technologies (HTT) plans to connect all of Europe by way of a tube transportation network.
