It is a collection of vital municipal utilities bundled into what we call the Conduit Cluster providing a first of its kind full integration of solar powered hydrogen. HYDROGEN SUPERHIGHWAY. Dakshata Sharma. ECE, Poornima College of Engg., Jaipur, India. ABSTRACT. In this paper a fast means of transportation. That is why it is called hydrogen superhighway. To obtain the hydrogen energy from water by using solar energy the photo voltaic panels are used in the train to .

What do you get when you combine the innovation of MagLev technology with solar power, hydrogen fuel, and a futuristic aesthetic? The Interstate Traveler Hydrogen Super Highwayor the Traveler — a supfrhighway solar powered, hydrogen-fueled, zero emission mass transit system that would carry everything from hdrogen to cars in sustainable style and carbon neutral function.
The construction is set to begin this year, and would connect Ann Arbor and Detroit. It would serve as public transport system AND superhighwqy electricity, potable hydroggen, liquid waste, fiber optics, hydrogen, oxygen, and fuels. It has been projected that each mile of rail would produce aboutwatts of electricity per hour at peak time using the solar energy. As for fuel, hydrogen would be used in fuel cells, internal combustion engines, micro turbines and other energy conversion devices to generate power.
The Traveler Stations would be built to provide easy access to the Interstate Highway, solutions to overcrowding, urban sprawl, public utility failures, traffic jams, car accidents, etc. The construction for the first phase would start in Michigan inand would link the cities suoerhighway Ann Arbor and Detroit.
What a wonderful thought. It should be a system that rewards the citizens on a state to state level of equality though and not end up in the hands or control of private enterprise. I live in Michigan and I can’t believe this! Public sjperhighway in the motor city is unheard of lol. I would love to see this become a reality though, I’ll keep superhhighway fingers crossed!
Mekhong’s statements portray an understandably incomplete grasp of the operation of the Interstate Traveler. As a partner in the Interstate Traveler Company and a friend of Justin Sutton’s, I appreciate the opportunity of responding. Justin Sutton’s original impetus for inventing the Interstate Traveler was to cure America’s rail transportation crisis.
As a college professor and mechanical engineer, Justin examined ALL existing rail technologies. Deeming them Hydogen flawed to one extent or another, he sought to cull the best and discard the rest.
The Interstate Traveler is the manifestation of that vision. It is superior to all other products for the following reasons: In motion, each car becomes a levitation body, thus providing upward lift through simple operation. One of the greatest challenges with conventional magnetic levitation trains is that as they travel faster, the downward force drives the engine into the rail.

The Interstate Traveler solves this problem through the design of the fuselage. The Interstate Traveler does not suffer from these problems because the system is fully automated and self-aware, because the rail is tubular, because the rail is made of AL stainless steel and because the magnets virtually grasp the rail at the end the nacelles, as opposed to simply riding on top of them as convention trains do.
In closing, the dozens of inventions and novel integrations of technologies inside the Interstate Traveler are the reason that the American Computer Science Association bestowed the prestigious Sir Isaac Newton Award on Justin Sutton for the Interstate Traveler.
Likewise, they are the reason that the government of the United States is in active negotiations with Justin through several cabinet-level departments to catalyze installation of the Interstate Traveler throughout the United States and every continent. I encourage you to telephone me with any questions you may have. It would be my pleasure to speak with you: While I agree with those cho say that at the conceptual level this is a great idea, I’m not so sure it’s anywhere near a reality.
Just spent about 45 minutes trying to find some information of Detroit’s official website.
The Hydrogen Super Highway
After considerable nosing around, I finally stumbled acorss a link to “Detroit People Mover,” but saw nothing there. Shortly after, I stumbled across another link to the Detroit Department of Transportation, and on that page, saw a link to a study of what to do.
Clicked that; no joy. The link was to a video which never opened, even after numerous tries. Hyydrogen also read the news article another contributor provided, but it seemed rather short on specifics. Many thanks for providing the link, however.
Look at the world’s first operational maglev system: While it has become immensely popular and successfulit’s doubtful, at best, it every would have gotten off the drawing board without massive central government backing, backing on all fronts. But these things can be done. Here in Bangkok we have a Skytrain and subway system, each independent but intersecting at two points.
Both will be extended in years to come, and in fact, parts of the Skytrain are already nearing completion or under construction in the expansion phase. While these use more conventional technologies, they have visibly contributed to easing Bangkok’s notorious traffic. I’d like to throw out another thought for consideration. Japan, for instance, has a major automobile industry though not oil, of courseyet in a gydrogen leader in both urban and long-distance mass transit, often employing cutting edge technology.

Perhaps it’s a bit off to blame GM et al for the resistance to expanding transport choices supehrighway cars. Ditto our aversion to publicly funding in some way expansion of alternative energy sources, most recently exemplified in the recent failure in the Senate of a bill the House had passed that would have extended benefits for alternative energy providers.
Bush had vowed to veto it anyway. BTW, in a number of forums I’ve read comments that if it weren’t for our spending hundreds of billions of dollars on the wars in Iraq especially and Afghanistan, we’d have the money to fund alternative energy development. In terms of the raw number of dollars that would still be in the national coffers, that’s true, of course.
I don’t want to touch upon the debate over whether those wars are superhighhway, run properly, etc. For all we know, some of it might have been used to further sweeten the pot for Big Oil and other heavy hitters across the business spectrum including outside energy and automobiles. Mahesh, a closing personal comment to you: I appreciate your story, and in no way am I criticizing or attacking you.
I might have written it a bit differently, but that’s not important. Thanks for the article — hydrogej keep it up. It is overdue that something should actually be built to help solve our crises, than simply given lip service. Lucky people in Michigan! Nothing happends here in Norway, we’re just inventing some very good green technologies, but our premier wont bother, but just tell uss to do something when we have Europes highest tax level.
Why all the negative comments? Its not that the readers oppose this idea, James, its just that this particular project seems to be fishy for a number of reasonsif not an outright scam. I could not get past their cheesy website- its not even professionally done.
And these are the guys getting millions of dollars to implement cutting edge technologies? I hear those things are awfully loud It glides as softly as a cloud. Is there a chance the track could bend?
Not on your life, my Hindu friend. What about us brain-dead slobs? You’ll be given cushy jobs. Were superhughway sent here by the devil? No, good sir, I’m on the level.
The ring came off my pudding can. Take my pen knife, my good man. I swear it’s Springfield’s only choice Throw up your hands and raise your voice! But Main Street’s still all cracked and broken Sorry, Mom, the mob has spoken! Although some of the ideas here are good like combining infrastructureI’d like to add a few critiques to the ones already stated.
The solar panels should not be in the hydrogeb. No matter how “new” the solar technology is, PV’s work more efficiently when they are not facing north, away from the sun in MI, and when they are not zuperhighway the shade of rails.
I can’t seem to find a good explanation of your version of “maglev technology”? Maybe I just missed it because the website is juvenile.
Are the tiny pods that ride on the rails little induction motors? The German maglev trains seem to need much bigger induction technology than that. Also, they generate their own power as they pass over magnets in the track. Furthermore, maglev eliminates the need for 2 tracks. Running separate cars on a single line is inefficient. What is wrong with attaching cars together so that a minimum amount of propulsion can move the whole string? Trains are by far the most elegant and efficient way to move people and freight.
Isn’t reduce the first of the three Rs? Putting an automobile in a bigger car seems to be the most ridiculous part of this.
