WE DECIDED TO USE ELEVATED ROADS HAVING MAGNETIC FIELD STRONG ENOUGH TO MOVE AERODYNAMICALLY DESIGNED BLOCK USING SOLAR & PIEZO ELECTRICITY.


Description

Summary

RISE IN PRICES OF CRUDE OIL,INCREASING TRAFFIC ON ROADS,INCREASE IN LEVEL OF AIR POLLUTION AND NOISE POLLUTION IS A CAUSE OF CONCERN FOR OUR SOCIETY.TO SOLVE THE PROBLEM OF TRAFFIC,FLYING CARS SEEMS TO BE A SOLUTION IN FUTURE BUT IN PRESENT TIME IT'S PRACTICALITY IS NOT PROOVED.SO WE HAVE DECIDED TO DEVELOP A MODE OF TRANSPORT WHICH CAN SOLVE ALL THESE PROBLEMS.WHY TO FLY CARS WHEN WE CAN LEVITATE THEM.SO WE HAVE USED PRINCIPLES OF MAGNETIC FIELD TO DEVELOP A NEW MODERN TRANSPORT FACILITY.A TRANSPORT MODE WHICH IS CLEAN ,POLLUTION FREE ,ECO-FRIENDLY,EFFICIENT,TIME SAVING AND DESIGNED FOR EVERY CLASS OF SOCIETY. TO MAKE IT MORE CLEAN AND ECO-FRIENDLY WE HAVE USED PHOTOVOLTAIC SOLAR PANELS TO GENERATE ELECTRICITY WHICH CREATES REQUIRED MAGNETIC FIELD TO LEVITATE THE BLOCKS.WE HAVE ALSO USED CONCEPT OF PIEZO ELECTRICITY IN STATION PREMISES WHICH WILL POWER THE ELECTRIC APPLIANCES . USING THESE SOURCES OF ENERGY,SUPPLY LOADS ON POWER PLANTS COULD BE REDUCED TO GREAT LEVEL.


What actions do you propose?

AS THIS CONCEPT WORKS ON MAGNETIC LEVITATION SO WE CANNOT USE ON GOING TRAFFIC ROADS FOR THIS MODE OF TRANSPORT.SO WE HAVE TO MAKE THREE LANE ELEVATED STRUCTURE ON EACH  SIDE OF ROADS.THESE ELEVATED ROADS WILL BE PROVIDED WITH TRACKS WHICH WILL PRODUCE MAGNETIC FIELD.THIS MAGNETIC FIELD WILL BE PROVIDED OVER FULL ROAD INSTEAD OF ASSIGNED TRACKS SO THAT MANEUVERABILITY AND LANE CHANGING FOR BLOCKS BECOME EASY AND EFFICIENT.WE WILL DESIGN CAR LIKE STRUCTURED BLOCKS WHICH WILL SERVE AS LEVITATED VEHICLES ON THE TRACKS. THE WIDTH OF THE BLOCK WILL BE DESIGNED SUCH THAT THEY ACQUIRE LESS SPACE AS COMPARED TO CARS SO THAT, THE TRACKS WILL BE OF MINIMUM WIDTH AND THEIR CONSTRUCTION WOULD NOT OCCUPY MUCH SPACE OF  ALREADY FUNCTIONING ROADS AND WILL NOT AFFECT THE FLOW OF TRAFFIC.OUT OF THESE THREE LANES, TWO LANES WILL BE ACTIVE FOR RUNNING THE BLOCKS AND THIRD LANE WILL BE USED FOR STOP IN CASE OF EMERGENCY, MECHANICAL ASSISTANCE ON ROAD SIDE BREAKDOWN AND MOST IMPORTANTLY FOR STATION STOPS. BUT OUR MAIN FOCUS IS MAKING THIS MODE OF TRANSPORT MORE ECO-FRIENDLY AND EFFICIENT THAN ANY TRANSPORT MODE EVER USED.SO WE'VE DECIDED THAT ELEVATED TRACKS WILL BE FULLY COVERED WITH SOLAR PANELS ON TOP THROUGHOUT THE RUN.SO THAT, MAXIMUM ELECTRICITY CAN BE GENERATED BY SOLAR FOR DEVELOPING MAGNETIC FIELD.   The most efficient solar cells currently in production are multi-junction photovoltaic cells. These use a combination of several layers of both gallium arsenide and silicon to capture the largest spectrum of light possible. Leading edge multi-junction cells are capable of exceeding 40% efficiency under ideal conditions. The record at the moment stands at an efficiency of around 40%, using multi junction cells (multiple layers of silicon), each layer tuned to trap different frequencies (colours) of light. This type of cell will however be expensive to produce and in the past has been mainly used in space where efficiency may be more important.The two important factors here are the angle at which the panels are mounted and the amount of sunshine falling on the particular location/avoidance of shade. Small areas of shade on a panel can have a significant effect on the power produced.  WE HAVE USED PHOTO SENSORS SO THAT SOLAR PANELS CAN ADJUST THEMSELVES IN THE DIRECTION OF MAXIMUM INTENSITY OF SUNLIGHT.SO BY USING SOLAR PANELS WE ARE REDUCING 35-40% OF ELECTRICITY THAT USED TO GENERATE MAGNETIC FIELD. THIS WILL HELP IN REDUCING GLOBAL TEMPERATURE RISE AS ELECTRICITY GENERATION REQUIRES NON-RENEWABLE SOURCES LIKE COAL WHICH IS ITSELF ON THE VERGE OF EXTINCTION AND PRODUCTION OF ELECTRICITY RELEASES TOXIC EXHAUST WASTE TO ATMOSPHERE, RISING POLLUTION AND ALSO RISES ATMOSPHERIC TEMPERATURE.WE APPRECIATE EVERY STEP TOWARDS INNOVATION.CONSIDERING THIS WE HAVE USED PIEZO ELECTRIC TILES IN STATION PREMISES .SO THAT IT COULD PRODUCE ENOUGH ENERGY TO POWER FANS AND LIGHTS. THE FLOORING TILES ARE MADE UP OF RUBBER WHICH CAN ABSORB THE VIBRATION AND UNDER THESE  THE PIEZO ELECTRIC MATERIALS ARE PLACED SO AS WHEN THE MOVEMENT IS FELT BY THE MATERIAL THEY CAN GENERATE THE ELECTIRICITY.WHEN A PERSON STEPS ON THEM,THEN BY PIEZO ELECTRIC EFFECT SMALL CHANGE IS BUILT UP.SO THE ENERGY GENERATED BY ONE HUMAN WOULD BE TOO LESS BUT IF NUMBER OF STEPS ON THESE KIND OF TILES INCREASE THEN ENERGY PRODUCED BY IT WOULD  INCREASE TOO.WHEN A PERSON STEPS ON SUCH KIND OF TILES PIEZO ELECTRIC CRYSTALS UNDER THE TILES WOULD EXPERIENCE SOME MECHANICAL STRESS WHICH MAKES THE ELECTRIC CHARGE TO BUILT UP ON CRYSTAL'S SURFACE WHICH CAN BE COLLECTED BY USE OF ELECTRODES. THIS KIND OF ENERGY CAN BE STORED IN CAPACITORS AND POWER CAN BE TRANSFERRED TO ENERGY REQUIRED AREA.JAPAN HAS ALREADY STARTED EXPERIMENTING USE OF PIEZO ELECTRIC EFFECT FOR  ENERGY GENERATION BY INSTALLING SPECIAL FLOORING TILES AT ITS CAPITAL' TWO BUSIEST STATIONS.    According to the Ambient Air Pollution (AAP) report for the year 2014, Delhi had PM 2.5 pollution levels, which is the highest in the world, followed by Beijing.The highest concentration of PM 2.5 form of air pollution is supposed to be a very serious matter and can lead to respiratory diseases and other health problems like lung cancer.According to the WHO, air pollution is the fifth largest killer in India.Carbon monoxide (CO), a dangerous gas emission, is around 6,000 microgram per cubic metre in Delhi, which is much above the the safe level of 2,000 microgram per cubic metre.The level of nitrogen dioxide (NO2) has also been increasing.Delhi has about 7.5 million vehicles and is adding 1,400 vehicles a day. This is mobility for the upper, middle class, at the cost of the less privileged members of society and environment and health.At the same time, public transport has come down, with bus riders dropping from 60 percent to 40 percent.Reduction in public transport  is the result of cattle class treatment provided by over crowded public transport BUT AS THERE IS NO FOSSIL FUEL LIKE PETROL, DIESEL IS USED SO BLOCKS WILL NOT GENERATE ANY HARMFUL TOXIC EXHAUST. BY MAKING ELEVATED ROADS WE CAN EVEN REDUCE THE PROBLEM OF TRAFFIC ON PRESENTLY FUNCTIONING ROADS SO THAT POLLUTION FROM NORMAL CARS CAN BE REDUCED TO SOME EXTENT AND AS ON ELEVATED PATH THERE IS NO DIVERGENCE AND NO TRAFFIC BARRIERS SO YOU CAN ACTUALLY COVER YOUR DISTANCE IN MINIMUM TRAFFIC AND TIME.AS THERE IS NO WHEELS IN BLOCKS SO THERE NO FRICTION WHICH MEANS MAXIMUM EFFICIENCY SMOOTH RIDE AND ALSO LESS WEAR AND TEAR OF BLOCKS WHICH RESULTS IN VERY LESS OR NEGLIGIBLE MAINTENANCE COST.THERE WILL BE ONLY ONE OPPOSITION TO THE MOVABILITY OF BLOCKS THAT'S AIR DRAG AND WE ARE WORKING ON MAKING BLOCKS MORE AERODYNAMIC TO MINIMIZE THE EFFECT OF AIR DRAG.WE WILL USE GYRO TECHNOLOGY IN BLOCKS TO INCREASE THE MANEUVERABILITY OF BLOCKS ON SIDE TRACKS WHILE CHANGING LANE OR OVER TAKING KEY FEATURES OF THIS CONCEPT :THE MAGLEV TRAIN USE TO CARRY A HEAVY OF ABOUT 400 PASSENGERS ALONG WITH IT'S OWN WEIGHT AND THEN AT A SPEED 318 MILES PER HOUR REQUIRES A LARGE MAGNETIC FIELD OF ABOUT 5 TESLA THAT UTILIZES 7,00,000 AMPERE CURRENT. BUT THE BLOCKS USED HERE ARE LIGHT WEIGHTED,WILL CARRY 4-6 PEOPLE AND WILL MOVE TO A LIMITED SPEED OF 70 KM/HR(as we have designed this concept initially for city).SO SMALLER MAGNETIC FIELD IS REQUIRED TO LEVITATE THE CAR.SMALLER THE MAGNETIC FIELD,LESSER THE ELECTRICITY IS USED O GENERATE THIS MAGNETIC FIELD.HENCE THIS CONCEPT BECOMES MORE PRACTICALLY POSSIBLE.THIS CONCEPT IS MORE PRACTICAL THAN ELECTRIC CARS AS IF THERE ARE MORE NUMBER OF ELECTRIC CARS THAN MORE ELECTRICITY WILL BE REQUIRED TO CHARGE EVERY CAR, BUT AS MENTIONED EARLIER, IN OUR CONCEPT WE HAVE DEVELOPED UNIFORM MAGNETIC LINES ON ALL LANES OF ELEVATED ROAD,SO EITHER WE DRIVE 5 CARS OR 500 CARS ON A STRETCH IT WON'T EFFECT THE EFFICIENCY(LOAD CARRIAGE) OF TRACKS.   Most cars take a long time to recharge their batteries. Tesla Motors' Model S can recharge in 45 minutes, but most electric cars right now take hours to charge. You can't drive the car while the batteries are charging usually, so your car will be out of commission while it is plugged in Most electric cars currently on the road do not have long ranges. Although in the future it will improve, most of the cars have a range of less than 25 miles, and you can't truly see the great benefits until you ride in a vehicle with a longer range      ALSO AS ELECTRIC CARS HAVE WHEELS ,WHICH CREATES FRICTION AND HAS LESS EFFICIENCY WHEREAS LEVITATED BLOCKS WILL FLOAT ON TRACKS WITH MAXIMUM EFFICIENCY AND WILL PROVIDE JERK FREE AND EXTREME COMFORTABLE RIDE.THIS CONCEPT HAS AN EDGE OVER ELECTRIC CARS AS ELECTRIC CARS WHICH HAVE LONGER RANGE  HAVE BIGGER BATTERIES AND  HIGHER MANUFACTURING COST ,HENCE 93% OF PEOPLE CAN'T AFFORD ONE,AND CHEAP ELECTRIC CARS USES SMALLER BATTERIES WHICH HAS SMALLER RANGE AND HENCE SEEMS TO BE LEAST PRACTICAL .BUT THESE BLOCKS WILL BE PROVIDED BY THE STATION AUTHORITIES O AFFORDABLE RENTAL BASIS SO THAT EVERY CLASS OF SOCIETY CAN ENJOY THIS FUTURISTIC MODE OF TRANSPORT.THE CAR WILL BE PROVIDED WITH NECESSARY UTILITIES LIKE AIR CONDITIONER, ENTERTAINMENT SYSTEM, HEADLIGHTS AND  TO OTHER  EQUIPMENT,WHICH WILL BE POWERED BY A BATTERY AND THESE BATTERY WILL BE CHARGED AT STATION SERVICE WINGS AT NIGHT USING CONSERVED SOLAR ENERGY.THESE BATTERIES CAN EVEN BE CHARGED WHILE STOP AT A STATION USING SEPARATE ASSIGNED SOLAR PANELS.THERE WILL BE OPTION OF CHOOSING 2 ,4 OR 6 SEATER BLOCKS ,ACCORDING TO REQUIREMENT SO THAT THERE CAN BE FLEXIBILITY IN RENTAL CHARGES.

TO TACKLE THE PROBLEM OF SENSELESS DRIVING WE HAVE DECIDED TO USE SELF DRIVEN BLOCKS INSTEAD OF SELF DRIVING BLOCKS.THIS WOULD AVOID PROBLEMS LIKE ROUGH DRIVING,UNWANTED OVERTAKES,UNWANTED STOPS.THE BLOCKS WILL INTERACT WITH EACH OTHER THOUGH A MEDIUM OF NETWORK LINKAGE RANGE TO AVOID COLLISIONS. THE CONTROL WILL BE SETUP AT EVERY STATION TO CONTROL AND MANAGE THIS SELF DRIVEN BLOCKS SYSTEM.THIS WOULD ALSO BE BENEFICIAL FOR SCHOOL CHILDREN,AND  PEOPLE WHO CAN'T DRIVE.


Who will take these actions?

THE GOVERNMENT BODIES WILL FORM A AUTHORITY WHO WILL GOVERN THIS PROJECT AND WILL MANAGE THE REVENUE COLLECTION .THE CONSTRUCTION PLANS WILL BE DESIGNED AS PER LOCATION AND SURROUNDING OF CONSTRUCTION SITE.STATION AUTHORITIES WILL DECIDE THE RENTAL AMOUNT SO S TO RECOVER INVESTMENT AMOUNT IN 2-3 YEARS OF TIME .AUTHORITIES WILL ALSO PROVIDE MAINTENANCE SERVICES TO THESE TRACKS AND BLOCKS.


Where will these actions be taken?

THESE ACTIONS CAN BE TAKEN IN ANY PART OF THE WORLD WHERE THERE CAN  BE ENOUGH SUNLIGHT T PRODUCE REQUIRED SOLAR ENERGY.THIS TRANSPORT CAN BE USED IN DEVELOPED AS WELL AS DEVELOPING COUNTRIES WHICH ARE FACING THE PROBLEM OF HEAVY TRAFFIC AND INCREASING POLLUTION LEVEL WHICH RESULTS IN TEMPERATURE RISE OF ATMOSPHERE.THIS PLAN IS MORE SUITED TO AREAS WHERE THERE I HEAVY AND SLOW TRAFFIC.


How much will emissions be reduced or sequestered vs. business as usual levels?


What are other key benefits?


What are the proposal’s costs?


Time line

TIME PERIOD  FOR ACTIVATING THIS TRANSPORT LINE DEPENDS ON HOW FAST ALL PARTS OF CITY CAN BE CONNECTED TO EACH OTHER THROUGH ELEVATED ROADS.FOR THE CITY LIKE DELHI IT WOULD TAKE 3-4 YEARS TO MAKE THIS CONCEPT FUNCTIONING.
