Dear colleagues, we all know well that public transport passengers suffer from the total exhaustion called “travel fatigue” with relevant attributes like apathy, lack of energy, chronic fatigue, and bad mood for no reason. As is known one can stay in the underground metro for less than 1 minute with no harm to health. The loudest noise, strong electromagnetic fields, claustrophobia, and excessive crowding of people in a limited underground space adversely affect health.
According to the new article of the string transport developer: “In a new survey of noise levels in the New York City transit system, researchers at Columbia University's Mailman School of Public Health found that exposure to noise levels in subways has the potential to exceed recommended guidelines of the World Health Organization and the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency. According to the research, as little as 30 minutes of exposure to decibel levels measured in the New York City transit system per day has the potential to result in hearing loss”.
The inhaled air contains myriad potential toxicants, which varies by source and site. A private car contributes to travel comfort neither, as it gets stuck in traffic jams making drivers nervous, which leads to chronic stress, including the stress resulting from the need to intensely analyse the situation on the road to ensure safe driving. Travel fatigue is also created by the physiological characteristics of a person – his vestibular apparatus does not tolerate frequent braking and acceleration, vibrations, shaking, and noise. In addition, passenger fatigue depends not only on the modes of oscillation of the vehicle body but also on the duration of exposure to such accelerations.
Needless to say, that there are many factors that distinguish our project and ensure a high level of travel comfort for string transport passengers:
- advanced smoothness and rigidity of the track (construction and dynamic irregularities of max 10 mm over a 50 m span), suspension softness (static travel of min 300 mm), and low noise (max 50 decibels) in motion;
- low acceleration and deceleration of the rolling stock (up to 0.5 m/s2) due to the lack of traffic obstructions; no traffic jams, intersections, traffic lights, pedestrian crossings, and low-speed zones;
- automated control system and lack of hazardous and unreliable transport interchanges;
- low waiting and travel time, as well as the ability to travel door to door when using private individual and family pods.
All the aforementioned fills us with joy as we all are contributing to the creation of the transport, which offers its passengers guaranteed safe and comfortable travel with pleasure and no fatigue.
