The first country in the world to test the train without a conductor

The Dutch rail operator ProRail announced its intention to conduct at least one test with a freight train without a conductor in 2018, which will make the Netherlands a pioneer in the field of automated driving, informs AFP, taken over by Agerpres .

Aslef admits trains without any conductors ARE safe | Daily Mail Online
Jan 9, 2017 ... The militant union behind the Southern rail strike told its members that services could continue even if conductors were unable to continue through 'sickness, assault or arrest'.

ProRail specified that the first freight-free freight train test will run on the Betuweroute route, a rail link connecting the ports of Rotterdam and Amsterdam to Germany, equipped with a European Rail Traffic Management System (ERTMS) security system better suited for automated driving.

During the test, the unmanned trains will operate with a system called ATO, abbreviated to 'Automatic Train Operation', which can partially or totally take over from the conductor.

ProRail explains that thanks to this system trains will be able to run closer to each other, which will increase the capacity of the railways and reduce energy consumption.

ProRail also informed that he was in talks with the authorities of Groningen to test a test for automated passenger transport on the rail, but it has not yet been established when this test will take place.

The high speed train that could reach 1,000 km / h

The wagons are suspended above the line by magnetic levitation, and the high speed is ensured by moving them in vacuum.

Thus, in the future these trains could be even faster than airplanes, and can travel about 600 km in just half an hour.

Recently successful performance is the third phase of train testing. The test was conducted in the special DevLoop Tunnel in Nevada, which is 3 km long.

The investment in Hyperloop One, a project launched in 2014, is up to 295 million dollars.

The idea of ​​such fast trains was launched by Elon Musk in 2013, but he was not actively involved in the project. Currently, Hyperloop One is associated with Virgin, owned by billionaire Richard Branson, writes Daily Mail

A new speed test hit the previous record set by the high-speed train.

Virgin Hyperloop One has set a new record. The high-speed train that is tested in Nevada reached the speed of 387 km / h, earning the previous record.

The company's representatives hope that the train, which will run through a special tunnel, will be launched in 2021, and the maximum speed it will reach is then 1,000 km / h.

Currently, the fastest trains in the world are only 350 km / h. These are Fuxing trains in China.
Hyperloop trains can achieve record speeds thanks to ingenious operation. The wagon runs through a special tunnel, from which the air has been removed, so that the friction force during travel is extremely low.
