Components of the SMT Rail System:

Double Tracks over light-weight Towers :
The unique double track system permits two-way traffic. It also allows Karts to ascend or descend on curved tracks to ground-level stations as well as overpassing at intersections.
Smart Karts
Smart Karts can be manufactured in different sizes and shapes based on the community's needs. They can carry 1 to 30 passengers at a time or even carry cargo or cars with or without passengers. Smart Karts are fully automated and they will be monitored on real-time basis via the command centers.
Switcher Arms
The Switcher Arms allow the Karts to safely switch from one track to another at top speeds (up to 200 MPH). The Switcher Arms open and close in a fraction of a second utilizing piezoelectric actuators working in tandem with the nanomagnetic drive system.
Levitation
SMT rail is unique when it comes to levitation of its Karts. The Karts are suspended under the track system using electro magnetrons to adjust levitation for loads upward. Several upper magnets generate a field which holds the supporting Arms in position without making direct physical contact with the tracks, thereby eliminating friction.
Tracks
SMT Rails’ track system is designed to be modular and can be modified to be extended without impacting the overall system design.
Stations:
Stations are located at the ground level in order to reduce costs and to provide accessibility for special needs passengers.
Solar Devices:
The Karts are suspended under the tracks, allowing for the top portion of the tracks to accommodate miles of solar devices. This produces ample energy for the system as well as additional surplus energy in large amounts, which can be fed into the local power grid for use by the surrounding community.
Propulsion System:
The drums act as the electrical motor.
Kart Arms:
Kart Arms are installed on a track ball.
Toll Collection:
Provisions for toll collection through a system that accommodate the use of smart phones, card readers and credit cards.
Other Options:
Surveillance technology, non-invasive security screening systems, advertising boards and screens. Please contact SMT Rail for a full list of available options.
Interactive Video System:
Karts and stations include tamper-proof touch screens that display interactive multi-language maps and offers ticketing options. These allow riders to select their desired travel destinations and program their ride. The system also provides local travel and shopping information to visitors.
GPS Functionality:
Karts can be ordered by the passengers using smart phones that are equipped with GPS.

 


Advantages

SMT Rail's nanomagnetic drive system takes energy efficiency in transportation to a new level. This enables the system to be completely self-powered by solar technology. Thin film solar panels placed along the the top of the rail line generate the energy required for operations, resulting in an emissions-free mode of transportation with a near-zero carbon foot print.
