Maglev ATN Game Changers
Magnovate’s technological breakthroughs represent a quantum shift in how advanced transportation systems can create value. Unlike existing Maglev or other High-speed systems, Magline represents additional dimensions to application, functionality, and accessibility that has an impact on all of the essential factors associated with economic, social and environmental considerations.
Accessibility (Magnovate’s Passive Switching)
Point-to-Point: the baseline value of linking major markets with advanced transportation efficiency.
Network: the ability to expand the baseline with one or more markets, including intra-market and inter-market access.
Functionality (Suspension, Powertrain and Track)
High-speed: the proven efficiency of magnetic levitation powertrains to overcome time/distance challenges.
Low-speed: the ability to operate efficiently in denser and more traditional public transit environments.
Applicability (Automated Transit Networks)
Schedule: the baseline usage profile that proscribes when and how customer demand is met – traditional ‘train’ vehicle.
Scalable: smaller “last mile” Local Area Networks (LAN’s) can be connected to one another in manageable phases as critical mass grows in areas that wish to connect to the network.
Multimodal on-demand:The ability to accommodate multiple vehicle types simultaneously on the same system/network with on-demand service.
These variables, alone and in combination, represent an innovation in variable speed ground transportation.
Unlike road, rail, air or ships; Magline is uniquely a 5th mode that breaks conventional paradigms around the future of transportation. Where existing systems are limited to line connections, Magnovate technology increases capacity and utilization by introducing a networked “packet-switching” model and “pipeline flows” of light weight vehicles. Economic value from initial capital investment increases as the network expands under the principles of Metcalfe’s Law.
Importantly, where a conventional transit system generates value by providing service to a few concentrated centers along a corridor, a Magline transportation system creates value by providing service to many centers on a broad network - amplifying economic impact regionally, thereby increasing the scope and effectiveness of LVC.
The resulting transit oriented development introduces a value capture model that offers stakeholders a means to offset capital investment by capturing the inherent value spikes at transit stations over a larger network service area – while providing users with an improved transportation experience.
