Technology is making noise in every field around us. You can’t even imagine how much some sectors are blessed because of technology. One of those sectors is the Transport sector. When we come out of our house now, we see people are using bicycles, motorcycles, cars, buses, etc., to go from one place to another. All of those vehicles through which we go from one place to another are the result of technology. These transport vehicles are being upgraded daily. Now, these upgrades have reached a spectacular level. Here I will discuss the latest three of them.
- Electric car: An electric car is propelled by electric motors, using energy from the rechargeable battery. It was produced many years ago but wasn’t accepted then because of improper infrastructure and technology. But now the electric car is being accepted by everyone. These cars don’t pollute air directly. Electric cars can emit 44-60% less greenhouse gas than a conventional one. These cars are also very power efficient.
- Autonomous vehicle: A vehicle capable of moving safely by sensing the environment with no human input is a self-driving car or autonomous car. This type of car uses sensors like GPS, sonar, radar, etc., for moving. China has trialed autonomous buses in one of its provinces. UK, France, New Zealand, Italy have also planned to use the self-driving car as public transport. Self-driving vehicles can save almost 10million lives per decade.
- Hyperloop: Hyperloop is a sealed tube with low air pressure. A pod will be able to travel freely through the tube without any friction or resistance. Hyperloop could convey people or objects at hypersonic speed. These types of vehicles are more energy-efficient than existing high-speed rail. Many critics said negatively about the unpleasant and frightening ride in a sealed, windowless capsule. But as technology is under consideration now.
New technology has caused some essential changes in the way we see transportation. A minor change can bring revolution in the transportation sector.
