I had envisaged a new 'concept' for Public Transportation for Smart Cities. It is almost perfect answer for ' Driver less Car ‘concept.


Project Overview

Why Do Traffic Jams Occur?

Roads are designed to handle certain level of traffic – Vehicular / Human. In due course, there will be increase
in users, vehicles, and timing (People want to use the roads at the same time in their hurry, i.e., Office / School Time 09.00 a.m.)

In this project we use the Buildings / Apartments “Building Top” as our landing / boarding place. Every Building whether it is 2 floors, 5 floors or 10 floors will have a ‘Building Top’ which is lying idle. At present Tower Cranes are used for material handling at large construction sites only. With little modifications in the design and Integration with latest available technologies in Lifts, Roller Coasters, Rope ways, etc, we can use them in Public Transportation. Hence, we can reduce the more than 50% of ‘congest’ on the roads.

  • There are some narrow lanes in a colony where two 2-wheelers cannot cross at a time.
  • There are some narrow streets in a colony where two 3-wheelers cannot cross at a time.
  • There are some narrow roads in a colony where two 4-wheelers cannot cross at a time.

There are ATMs in the colony, in the streets where a lot of money transactions are taking place. The ATM entrance may be 3-ft width. Like that, we can collect people through small entrance in the congested / narrow streets, lift them to Building Top / Pick up Centre and shift them through modified Tower Cranes)

Current Task in Progress

Ms. Cathy, Sales Engineer, Trading Company to Zoom lion, the 4th largest Tower Cranes Manufacturing Company in the world understood my concept and took pains (spent Amount:- INR 1,00,000/-) to get Design and 3D Animation by Government National Tower Crane Design Institute, China, and ready with quotation to supply the Machinery

Project Steps

Govt Authorities are trying to find out solutions for
Traffic Jam in Cities / Towns Example:- Hyderabad

Challenge:- NO other ‘MODE’ of Transport in the world can move men / materials with this ‘speed‘ in the congested Colonies / Cities.

Seed Funding Requirement

by the Chartered Engineers / Institutions and
Submit to GHMC for consideration,

Why I’m Passionate About This Project

A Great saying: - Three (3) stupid stages in life.

Teenage - Have Time & Energy but no Money
Working age - Have Energy & Money but no Time
Old age - Have Money & Time but no Energy
Most of the population on the Earth is in Working Age. If we can show the way to save the Public Time at least their travel time, this Startup will be a boon to mankind.
AIM:- I want to ‘relieve‘ all the Urbanites — 2 - Wheeler, 3 - Wheeler, 4 - Wheeler Owners from “Driving” work, within two years from the execution of this Project

Supporting Material & Info


  • Task 1: …detailed description goes here
    TASK:- Is there any possibility to ‘ develop ‘software application / coding for the ‘Topic ’.
    With this development of the software, we can expect disruptive attitude / technologies in the present Transport Systems.

Can we develop software with which Trains / Compartments can stop on the Platform exactly at the point required, so that Passenger- filled trolleys / cabins can be moved out with Hydraulic Jacks, etc to shift through modified Tower Cranes.
Coding Topic:-
‘Metro Rail‘travels say 5 km in a route, i.e., 5000 meters = 500000 cms.
The circumference of the Wheel of the Train is 70*22/7 = 220 cm.
Hence, to cross the 5 km distance, the train wheel has to rotate = 500000/220 =2273 times.
In other words, the wheel has to rotate 2273 times to reach 5 km distance.
Can we develop coding for the braking system to stop the train exact place like, when the route digital counter shows / reaches (say) 1st station at 1254, 2nd station at 1732, 3rd station at 2015…… like that.
When the train reaching 1st station, i.e., digital counter nearing 1254 revolutions, the software sends signal to braking system I, II, III, etc which will apply brakes slowly and finally stops and locks at 1254th revolution.
Example:- In our two-wheeler we are having Speedo Meter. It shows Vehicle Speed as 0 k.m. – 30 k.m. – 60 k.m., etc In that Meter, we are having Distance Meter also. It shows the distance travelled by the Vehicle as 12435.6 – 12435.9, etc

Can we develop using / sending signal to clutch variator, details Link;-

  • Task 2: …detailed description goes here
    (adding Software / Equipment to the existing coaches)

In order to save the Public Transport time, and also to reduce the excessive rush at the stations, the following design may be considered. In this design, the Metro Engine pull / push (say) 6 Trolleys in a route.
The train drops 1st trolley at 1st station junction and moves further and drop 2nd trolley at 2nd station Junction and moves further. The trolleys dropped at junctions’ moves to stations / pickup canters, with separate mechanism. Passengers will board / de boards the cabins in the trolley and the trolley will come back to the junction, to be pulled / pushed by the Metro Engine.

This concept can be tried in normal train routes also.

For this we use Intelligent Train Coaches. These coaches will have its own braking and signalling facility.

For Example, at Vijayawada Railway Station;

A Train from Visakhapatnam to Tirupati is crossing Vijayawada Station. Passengers for Vijayawada Station are in the last Compartment (say) 20th Compartment. The Train is running at 70 km speed in main Track and leaves last Compartment ahead of Platform No.1 and continue its journey. With the Kinetic Energy, it got from the Train movement at that speed, the Compartment is having moving capacity to reach Platform No.1.

While the compartment reaching the ‘line changing point ‘on the track, it sends signal to change to 1st Track, and track changes and the compartment reaches and stops on Platform No.1, at exact place, with the breaking system on the 1st Track and also in the Coach… Passengers get down.

This mechanism is using Pulling. In the Pushing work, the Train collects the Passenger filled compartment, by coming to Track 1 and after that it shifts to main line again and continue its journey.
