Magnetic Levitation Trains

This technology pertains to trains that magnetically levitate above a grid of electromagnets on a rail, that generate pulses of forward or reverse moving magnetic waves to push the train forward or backwards. The trains don’t have wheels, and because they are levitating, they have virtually no friction associated with the movement of the train. This cuts down on power loss from heat that would normally emanate from the train’s wheels, and it makes the train require less maintenance than trains that work on propulsion on a track. The technology can also be combined with stealthy shapes that reduce the wind resistance, so the train acts like a long aircraft. These trains can also be combined with a vacuum tube, that adds to the power and speed of the train, as there is less resistance from wind.

Auto-Driving Semi Trucks in America

There should be a system that communicates accurate positioning data, more accurate than GPS, installed on the interstates and highways, to allow the safe driving of auto-piloted semi-trucks, that would require a driver to accompany the vehicle, but could require that there be two drivers per semi-truck, which would not excessively increase the cost of transit, and would also allow one driver to sleep while the other driver operates. This could allow the semi-trucks to operate nearly 24/7, transferring more cargo, to more destinations, safely.

The navigation systems of the semi-trucks should include cameras at all lengths of the trailer, to monitor for potential vehicle collisions, in addition to cameras in the front and rear, all of which keep track of the vehicles around the truck and trailer, and monitor for hijackers using a system that links to the Department of Homeland Security, to identify subjects that are a risk to national security, through high-resolution facial recognition, and the systems could dispatch police cruisers to the scene when a subject is identified in proximity to a semi-truck.

This is increasingly important in today’s world, in which two terrorist attacks have occurred using semi-trucks.

The development of auto-driving technologies should factor in hack-less systems that cannot be compromised by hackers, either over the Internet or through the system’s communications protocols. This type of system would basically design security into the entire infrastructure that maintains the auto-driving vehicles, and prevents them from being used for terrorism – as these types of vehicles would pose potentially, more of a risk, because they could be programmed to carry explosives or other materials to a destination and remotely detonate the materials.

The vehicles could have sensors installed in them that detect certain types of chemicals, and radiation detectors, which would immediately notify the government of any readings that are out of the ordinary. This could secure both the vehicles, and the vehicles in the proximity.

There would need to be circumstances understood, such as passing near a nuclear power plant when there is an exhaust leak, that certain sensors, even at low levels of radiation that are not normally detected, would set off the security systems, and there would need to be security over the release of such information, due to the sensitivity of the sensors.

Additionally, there could be an uplink of the cameras on the semi-trucks that are automatically driven, so intelligence about other vehicles could be collected and sent to DHS and/or DOT for analysis, such as catching people who road rage or speed.

Dashcam Traffic Conditions Alert App

  • Dashcam uploads data to an app that is used to identify traffic patterns

    • Road construction

      • Identify in video road construction crews

    • Road conditions

      • Speed of traffic, to identify traffic patterns such as delays because of road construction or accidents, and re-route traffic based on this intelligence being provided to other vehicles.

        • Route traffic to other roads that aren’t as bottlenecked.

    • Emergency Response Vehicles locations

      • Police – this could help drivers avoid speeding tickets if they normally speed, because the dash cam would alert upcoming drivers of the location of the police vehicle, and they could be alerted to slow down. This is essentially a second generation, and more intelligent version, of radar detectors.

      • Fire

      • EMS

    • Other types of trafficking vehicles

    • Integration with 911 system to anticipate auto accident calls, gather information about the accident from the nearby dashcams to determine how serious of an accident it is

    • This technology will become more prevalent when we are using self-driving cars in the future.
