A futuristic rail system featuring track-less trains and virtual lines has been unveiled in the city of Zhuzhou in central China’s Hunan Province.
Billed the world’s first ‘smart train’, the 32-meter long and 3.4-meter high vehicle, can accommodate 307 passengers and has a top speed of 70 kilometers per hour.
Instead of tracks, the train runs along white-dotted lines on the test ground, controlled by hundreds of sensors. The train also uses rubber tires, which makes the ride like riding the bus.
Its lithium titanate battery enables the train to run 25 kilometers after just 10 minutes of charging.
