Period #7

12.03.12 THIS WILL BENFIT THE WORLD AND EVERYONE WILL LIKE IT BECAUSE IT IS ECO FRIENDLY = THE STRADDLING BUS THE MASS TRANSPORTATION OF THE FUTURE THIS WILL BENFIT THE WORLD AND EVERYONE WILL LIKE IT BECAUSE IT IS ECO FRIENDLY = BY : Brittany Emsais Straddle Means: to sit or stand with one leg on either side of
The Straddling bus is a combination of both a bus and a train
It is currently being investigated by scientists and engineers in the US and China.
It will be guided by one of these two; paint that will guide it by auto-pilot or tracks on the road
It is going to be around 18ft tall and 25ft wide Straddling Bus The Straddling Bus’ power source is both solar power and electricity. Power Source Lessening Traffic
Lessening Air Pollution
Won’t Take Long to Build
Very Safe Mode of Transportation How it will improve our Society How it is better than other modes of mass transportation Lessening Traffic
Lessening Air Pollution
Won't take long to build
The cost to build
> Lessening traffic will both improve society and make it a better system of transportation than buses and subways.
It won’t have to take up space on the ground to slow things down
The stations or stops will be elevated and there will be a sliding door on the top. Lessening Traffic the inside lower level of the straddling bus Lessening Air Pollution Lessening Air pollution will both make it a better mode of transportation and will improve society
It will lessen air pollution by replacing buses that use a lot of gasoline-fossil fuel- thus lessening the amount of carbon that is let out into the air. Won't Take Long to Build The fact that it wont take long to make both helps society and makes it better than other modes of transportation
Subways for example take around three years for a sub and 100 miles of track while the straddling bus only takes 1 year to do 100 miles stops and the bus it self Cost To Build The cost to build will make the straddling bus better than other mass transportation like subways.
It costs around $75 billion to make 25 miles of subway while it only takes $7.4 million to make 25 miles of straddling bus Subway Straddling bus Which is Better?? The Straddling Bus
Wins!!! It is very safe The fact that it is very safe will improve society.
It is very safe because the same type of emergency exits as a plane the best emergency exits to ever be built and used are incorperated within it. The Different Types of Forces and Motion that it will use Gravity- it acts on everything
Sliding Friction- the sliding doors in the ceiling
Rolling Friction- the wheels [whether it is on a track or guided with the special paint]
Inertia- because it is in movement Potential Safety Hazards Turning- there is a system that will notify the drivers underneath that there is a turn coming up
Large cars that won't fit underneath- an alarm will signal them to switch lanes
A car switching lanes- a signal or siren that will tell cars when a straddling bus is approaching
Avoid hitting the interior or the wheels- a siren will go off if they get too close
The guy who invented it Subway Straddling bus Which is Better?? The Straddling Bus
Wins!!! > & WE HAVE EVOLVED TRANSPORTATION TO FIT OUR NEEDS GOING FROM WALKING TO BIKING TO AIRPLANES & CARS AND NEXT COMES THE STRADDLING BUS THANKS FOR WATCHING
