The new Chinese technology is a train that does not walk on the railways, but on a virtual railway, which China recently launched in Sichuan, two years after its unveiling, as it uses a network of sensors instead of traditional tracks.
The "ART T1" train monitors the dimensions of roads and maps its route instead of being installed on real tracks, and costs an estimated 1.128 billion yuan ($ 160 million), according to a report by the British newspaper "Daily Mail" in a report.
The virtual railway stretches 11 miles (17.7 km), and the driver sits in the cockpit, but does not drive, because its role is to be on alert when failure or emergency.
If the train continues outside its yellow lines, or if there is an obstacle in place, it will automatically switch to manual mode, and a group of "GPS" and "Lidar" will guide the train in the streets, similar to the independent (driverless) cars that are Developed all over the world.
The "Yibin ART T1" train line can travel at 43 mph (70 km per hour) and carries up to 300 passengers at a time.
The rail system, dubbed "ART" or the auto-controlled high-speed railway, was developed by the Chinese CRRC company, one of the largest railway manufacturers in the world, to speed up public transportation in Sichuan which It has a population of about 4 million people, before being published in other parts of China.
The US "Bloomberg" agency talked about the technological developments that will take place around the world in 2020, on computers and mobile phones that will not need the recharge that they currently need.
