World's first autonomous 'Skytrain' now in China; is 3X better than subway trains
According to the report, Chinese engineers say that 'Skytrain' can perform nearly three times better than regular subway trains and can ascend gradients of 100 meters over a distance of 1,000 meters. Designed as a lightweight, intermediate speed, medium traffic volume, and low-cost transport system, the 'Skytrain' reportedly has huge market potential in scenic areas, mountainous regions, and major cities.
China has recently experimented with an autonomous ‘Skytrain', the elevated monorail, which was put on trial operation in Qingdao, eastern China's Shandong Province. Representational Image, source: Youtube
