JPods personal transportation system uses solar energy to power up
In the future, travelling in urban areas could indeed turn into a green and more eco-friendly affair, if transportation modules like these are used. Called the JPods, this personal transportation concept design by Bill James essentially includes a rail line designed to be squeezed into tight urban areas that use solar energy to power up. Sporting driverless, on-demand electric four to six seat vehicles suspended from the photovoltaic-topped rails above, the JPods enables users to select their locations using touchscreen interfaces and a network-integrated system. In all, the JPods seem like a fabulous way to travel in the future and could very well help cities reduce their carbon footprint.
