Acabion Elevated Tracks: No Limit Future

For decades, has been busy trying to how the future would look Regardless of the field of human where the predictions are made, making them have a to remain trapped in conventional

This applies to visions of the in transportation, as well. Movies, and drawing depicting the future of have embedded into the mind a future of autonomous flying or driving on either air or usual roads, just they do today: at relatively speeds, with traffic all around.

But what if those were wrong? What if the looks nothing like but completely different? A future on suspended tracks, but with no speed limits to trap the of tomorrow in endless jams.

An Acabion future.


Acabion is a German company plans to change the way in which individual or otherwise, will in the distant future. But that’s not What’s important is why the company to change the future, and how.

from the premises that road network and the vehicles on it are flawed and ineffective, Acabion it’s time for somebody to a future where speed and jams will no longer be an

Using specially designed running of specially designed, or vacuumed tracks, like see below, the company has a proposition to how would you feel traveling at of

600 km/h (372 mph)? Or 20,000 km/h (12,427


For the vision of a going 20,000 km/h to a reality, some conditions at first be met and some new technologies And the most important of these are the Acabion tracks.

To be built, at first, as extensions to the roads, the elevated tracks allow, in theory, the creation of the infrastructure for the vehicles to achieve the speeds we mentioned earlier. as fully automated roads, the would be used in stages.

the first stage, which may reality by 2015, the tracks be built to cover short Starting and ending at junctions regular roads, the tracks allow at first speeds of 300 km/h (186 mph).

By the of the century, the tracks would be to cover short-, mid-, and distance travel as well. the Acabion track, a person be able to travel from Los to Memphis in four hours, or Bangalore to New Delhi in three This is the second stage of the dream, which should itself in 2050.

At about the same time, the should become fully and powered by the sun alone. Power located along the tracks not only generate electricity and use it for the operation of the track, but also it to the crafts traveling on those Because, by 2050, Acabion to ditch all engines and motors in its and use a maglev-like system to propel the forward.

By 2100, transportation as we it will completely change. The and roads, still in operation at a level, would be accompanied by tubes to cover long and distances. These 3 meters in tubes would allow the traveling inside them to speeds of up to 20,000 km/h mph).

The craft would be powered in the by the same maglev-like elements on the suspended tracks, propelling forward, one at a time.

The Acabion are, for now, intended as crafts for individual transport. means that, in general, have been created as transportation vehicles, to be used like today’s cars. mass transportation using the principles is not that farfetched.

has already created a few vehicles are intended to populate the elevated of tomorrow. Launched in three the MK and GT series and the da Vinci models, the Road Streamliners are electric powered by motors which can a power of about 600 kW, or the equivalent of 804 hp. And in mind that this troop is intended to propel a which is not much bigger a motorcycle (in fact, a little shows that the motors no less than 2,500 in these Streamliners).

The crafts, says Acabion, been designed to offer a top of about 420 km/h (248 on standard highways and up to 600 km/h mph) on the purpose built The speeds will be achieved not because of the power units, but because of the design of the crafts. says that it is using elements from jet fighters, bikes and space flight

Just to give you an example on how the new will be built, it’s to tell you that Acabion’s contraption, the GTBO. uses the from a Suzuki Hayabusa, can to up to 547 km/h (340 mph) even if it’s not electric, as the from the future will be, it achieves remarkable fuel figures: 100 mpg (2.35 l/100km) at 100 mph km/h).
