Podding around Barcelona: Nbown's personal transport concept
Nbowm's concept is a magnetic elevated rail which can be placed along the central reservation sections in highways. Then mono-seat pods would run without human intervention. Users could be reading the newspaper, watching TV or surfing the net. The system includes a set of stations in which users could leave their cars and use one of the automatic-guided vehicles. Each vehicle would run at a determinated distance from the previous one and at a constant speed.
Pep Valls, project manager states that the project is reasonable because land usage is kept to minimum. They expect to have a testing track ready by 2010. Of course, no mention is made to the source of electricity, the convenience of only individual vehicles and the cost of building such a track. But let's not spoil the idea.
