The Future ofTransportation英翻中

The Future of Transportation A. LookMom, No Hand!In May 2012, Nevadabecame the first place in the world to issue a license for a driverless car. Thelicense was for a Toyota vehicle that employs technology developed by Google toallow drivers (if you can call them that!) to travel without having to operateany of the car’s controls themselves. While Google cofounder Sergey Brinpredicts that driverless cars will be on roads everywhere within five years, mostexperts think it might be a bit longer. B. TheHorizontal ElevatorAlso known as pod cars,Personal Rapid Transit will revolutionize public transportation, according toproponents. It’s basically a cross between the subway and a taxi, with small, automatedvehicles moving around on tracks. One advantage of the system is that you won’thave to wait on the platform for minutes, as a car will arrive within second ofyou pressing a button to call it. Another attractive aspect is the fact thatyou won’t have to share your carriage with a heaving mob as each vehicle willcarry just a few people. But the biggest plus is that by entering yourdestination, you’ll be able to travel direct from point to point, withoutstopping at all the stations in between. Several pilot schemes are alreadyoperating around the world, and more will be launched soon. C. HereComes the SunModern, high-techvehicles are undoubtedly going to play a major role in the development oftransportation, but what about the roads and highways themselves? Onefascinating concept in the solar road. Solar panels would replace concrete andasphalt and the energy collected would pay for the road itself over time. Otherpossibilities could include adding LED lights to provide the road marking, andheating for frosty climates. Although, solar roads won’t be widespread anytimesoon, at least one company is already working on plans for a solar parking lot.

    A.未來的交通運輸

    媽!你看!沒有人駕駛的車子!在2012年5月,內華達州成為世界第一個發出無人駕駛車輛執照的地方,這個執照是發給使用谷歌開發科技的豐田品牌汽車,可讓駕駛人(如果你要這麼稱呼的話!)無需操控車輛即可到處行動。谷歌的共同創辦人Sergey Brin預測無人駕駛汽車將在5年內各地方中上路,大部份的專家認爲所需的時間可能更長些。

    B.水平電梯

    這種電梯也成爲莢式電梯,根據支持者的說法,這種個人快速運送載具對大眾運輸將造成新興的革命,基本上,其運輸功能介於地鐵和計程車之間,屬小型的自動化車輛可在軌道上移動。此系統的一個好處就是你無需在月臺等待數分鐘來搭車,只要你按下召喚按鈕車輛即可在數秒鐘內到達,另一個吸引人的好處是你無需與暴徒同在一個車廂內,因為每部車輛只載有少數的人。但最大的好處是只要輸入你的目的地,你即可直達無需在各站停靠。全球已規劃好許多的試行計劃,很快地也將有更多的地方開始跟進啓動。

    C. 太陽來了!

    現代化的高科技車輛無疑地在運輸發展中扮演重要的角色,但對道路和高速公路本身的發展如何呢?太陽能板可取代混凝土和瀝青,隨著長時間所收集的能量可用於道路運輸上。其他的可能性包括加設LED燈作為道路標示或用於寒冷氣候下的加熱暖化。雖然太陽能道路短期內不會普及,至少有一家企業正着手進行太陽能停車場的計劃。
