Is this the future of transportation?
Throughout the years, many professional were studying the issue of urban transport. Today, our streets and highways are jam-packed with all kinds of transportation vehicles and this is not a good thing at all. The hassle and bustle streets of every city are one of the enduring issues most of the countries are facing today. Though our government is weighing options on how to deal with it, the issue of urban transport and traffic is still clearly seen.
The Facebook page ‘First 2 Know’ shared a video that features what seem to be the future of transportation. This idea is called ‘Gyroscopic Transport’.
This transport could carry and move many people at once. The vehicle has a narrow footprint, allowing the vehicle to easily move through existing traffic roads. Gyroscopic Transport will probably supersede buses, trams, and trolleybuses in the cities of the future. This mode of transportation has huge potential to provide an efficient, economical, safe, environmentally friendly, comfortable, and maneuverable conveyance that is independent of the general traffic flows on arterial roads. That is because the lane separator between lanes satisfies all of the requirements for the creation of this mode of transportation.
Besides public transport, it could also be used for firefighters to reach a location much faster. Just imagine how many lives this mode of transportation could save.
The creator of the idea, Dahir Semenov, said:
“It is just simply too tempting to be able to travel without traffic jams at any time of the day or night. I can imagine that someone would like to ask me if I am personally ready to undertake the introduction of this type of transport in practice, that is to say, to see the project through all stages from the design and construction of the first prototype to the testing and certification of the industrial product.”
“And I can answer that I am not only ready, but I consider it my direct duty as the creator of the idea and patent owner (the person with the formal right to realize the invention) to produce second- and third-level gyroscopic transport. I’ve been developing this idea for two years now, and I’m prepared to bring it to fruition in practice. First, we will finish designing the entire model range of cars and transit stations. And then, if everything goes according to the plan, in 2020 tens of thousands of fans from different countries around the world attending one of the big international sports competitions will be able to see and even ride for free the most luxurious urban gyro monorail trains, the transport of the future,” he said.
“I propose that the gyroscopes in these cars will be initially powered by flywheels that are wound-up in the morning. They will continue to be powered throughout the day from the energy supplied by solar panels that are mounted on the roofs of the cars. My hope is that this will be the most important transport event of the next two decades.”
“I can say without exaggeration that this mode of transportation is compatible with the human habitat, with the spaces in which city dwellers recreate. It can pass alongside parks, squares, and pedestrian paths, and in some cases it can even ride alongside people strolling down wide boulevards. After all, it is absolutely safe in both ecological and physical terms. It cannot cause serious injury. The most it would do if it hit a person who is standing on the monorail would be to push him out of its way,” he added.
Semenov classify this mode of transportation as a friendly transport and unlike other vehicles, Gyroscopic Transport makes no audible noise, and when you travel on it, you will be able to relax in one of its comfortable seats.
But one question remains unanswered, “When will this become a reality?”.

Unbelievable! I'm so excited for this to turn into a reality
