Comparison of uSky rolling stock with the brainchild of the richest man on Earth, Elon Musk, has been going on for a long time. It seems that we ourselves did it for the first time back in August 2015, and now we present to you another publication on this topic from the already well known resource cleantechnica.com:
“Unitsky String Technologies Inc. Has Developed An Electric Car More Eco-Friendly Than A Tesla
Traffic congestion is a significant issue in urban areas in the United States and around the world. Public health impacts of congestion and idling were identified as early as 2010 to be significant in magnitude. That’s because carbon monoxide, nitrogen oxides, and hydrocarbons are released when fuel burns in an internal combustion engine (ICE). Gasoline vapors escape into the atmosphere during refueling and when fuel vaporizes from engines and fuel systems caused by vehicle operation or hot weather. This evidence points to a causal role for traffic-related air pollution on mortality, particularly from cardiovascular events.
Greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions from global road transport in 2050 need to be dramatically lower than today’s levels. Light-duty ICE vehicles, the vast majority of which are passenger cars, are responsible for the largest share of transport-related GHG emissions, currently about 5 Gt CO2 eq.
Electric cars pollute far less than their ICE counterparts, as they don’t emit tailpipe pollution of any kind — smog-forming or climate change-creating. But the Union of Concerned Scientists reminds us that, given that EVs are charged by electricity, they are indirectly responsible for the pollution from the source of that electricity, as well as the emissions from producing whatever fuels those power plants burn. Regardless, when compared to a gasoline car’s fuel efficiency and emissions, which will remain the same for the life of the car, an EV will be accountable for less and less pollution over time as utilities continue to transition from fossil fuels to wind, solar, and other renewable sources.
But a new vehicle entering the marketplace may be resolving some of the problems of modern transportation of both ICE and electric cars. With fast, safe, and accessible second level transport, the uPod has the potential to make traffic congestion, pollution, and accidents much less common.
What is it? uPod is an automated, electric vehicle (EV) by Unitsky String Technologies Inc. (UST). The company says that the string transport handles transportation problems “that even Elon Musk’s electric car cannot solve.” That’s because the Unitsky String Technologies Inc. company goals are geared, first and foremost, toward energy efficiency and environmental friendliness in its production.
Unitsky String Technologies Inc. created electric vehicles on steel wheels that move on string rails. The vehicles on the rails perform at varying capacities and can speed up to 150 km/h. The noise and vibration from their string transport is lower than from railways, trams, and monorails. The UST model range comprises a variety of passenger and cargo electric vehicles.
String transport has advantages over other EVs.
- The energy consumption of uPods is two-three times lower than in existing transport systems, as they use steel wheels.
- uPods produce 10-15 times lower energy consumption than road transport.
- The transport complex by UST is affordable and easily integrated into existing infrastructure, as it requires minimum land allocation for construction.
The Tesla Effect. Over the last decade, Tesla has developed an eco-friendly car, but UST argues that there can be more interesting vehicles in terms of ecological safety. Considering all of Tesla’s advantages, UST points out that Tesla does not solve all long-standing transportation problems.
- How can road accidents be eliminated?
- How can the problem of traffic jams be solved?
- How can we use less energy?
- How can harmful emissions to the atmosphere caused by rubber tire wear or their manufacturing be excluded?
Unitsky String Technologies Inc. provides answers to these questions. They have initiated manufacturing processes that address these challenges through their automated electric vehicles on steel wheels.
What’s the difference between the uPod and other EVs?
- UST reminds us that, while conventional electric cars are environmentally friendly, they still occupy a place on the road leading to traffic jams with fuel-powered cars. String transport eliminates this problem because it moves on a special above-ground highway.
- Rubber tires used in EVs, as well as asphalt, are eventually worn away and release harmful substances into the air. Tire and asphalt production also pollutes the atmosphere, while the Unitsky String Technologies Inc. transport uses steel wheels.
- Other EVs are still subject to accidents. With string transport, accidents are ruled out. The track structure is located above the ground and does not intersect with other roads, providing an unprecedented security level.
- Above-ground roads are also important because surface level environments and underground hydrology may be left untouched.
- The uPod is driven by artificial intelligence, which responds instantly to the smallest changes in traffic situations.
- uPod may carry up to 50,000 people per hour.
Unitsky String Technologies Inc. has an Innovation Center in Sharjah near the exhibition venue EXPO 2020. There you can see the Unitsky String Technologies Inc. transport in operation. If you’re planning to attend, stop by and see the string transport models for yourself. The company would love to show you what they’re accomplished!
