Beijing (June 9, 2017) China has unveiled the world’s first rail-less and self driving train in zhuzhou, in the Hunan province of central china.
The self-driving train, which is 30 meters in length, is part of the intelligent rail express system by Chinese rail provider CRRC zhuzhou, and runs on rubber tires rather than rails.
Kitted out with sensors, the train can read the dimensions of roads and plan its own route. In fact, it’s much like having a virtual rail for the train.
As it’s green coloring would suggest, the train is eco-friendly powered by electricity, yet can still travel over a distance of 40km per full charge.
