This is the vision of our future transportation in megacity by Matej Dubis, The Pulse. It’s a concept that brings ecological and efficient transportation system by practicing the same principle as cable gliding. By utilizing this principle, vehicles don’t need to have powerful engines as they take advantage of gravity to gain acceleration, and any other energy needed will be supported by the lifting “knots”, crossroads of the system’s web. Vehicle runs in regular centralized waves that create the pulse, the rope utilizes a biomimetic technology (technology that mimics nature) of artificial muscles in order to support the gliding movement and provide necessary local interventions.
Since the design was based on purely experimenting and creating unconventional transportation system, therefore, it’s still at the stage of raw ideas, not compromised by technical or safety requirements. The Pulse can transport hundreds of passengers however, there’s another choice for passengers to enjoy private ride using only 4-person pod.
