    无人驾驶的公交车作者: 思苇   Imagine a city transport system 20 years into the future—congestion, poor air quality and energy inefficiency may come to mind. Now Capoco Design Ltd are proposing an automated bus transport system that is economical and green.
  Alan Ponsford, Capoco’s Design Director says, “The surprising thing about a city bus is that about 60 per cent of the running cost is spent on the driver.”
  Capoco’s driverless bus is designed to run on electricity but can be updated to run on the cleanest fuel available. The vehicle navigation technology combines satellite positioning and a calibration system using magnets positioned in the road every few metres.
  Ponsford explains, “You can run vehicles as small as five metres long and carrying 24 people, and you can run them more frequently.” In other words, transport in the future could be as easy as hopping on a horizontal lift.
  想象一下20年以后的城市交通系统——你脑海中浮现的可能是交通堵塞、空气质量差以及能源利用效率低等问题。如今,英国的卡波科设计有限公司提出了一个经济环保的自动公交运输系统。
  卡波科公司的设计总监阿伦·庞斯福德说:“令人吃惊的是,城市公交系统近六成的运营成本都花在了司机身上。”
  卡波科公司的无人驾驶公交车被设计为电力驱动,但也能够不时升级,以最清洁的可用燃料驱动。车辆的导航技能联合了卫星定位以及由路上每隔几米分布的磁石构成的定位系统。
  庞斯福德解释说:“你能够驾驶长度惟有5米、载客容量为24人的小型车,这就能够更加频繁地发车了。”换句话说,未来的交通也许会更便捷,就像搭乘水平运行的电梯那样。
