World’s first Digital train track unveiled in central China
The world’s first digital track train premiered on Friday in the city of Zhuzhou in central China’s Hunan Province. The train, which is 32 meters long and 3.4 meters high, can accommodate 307 passengers and has a top speed of 70 km per hour.
Rather than tracks, the train runs across white-dotted lines on the test floor, controlled by hundreds of detectors. The train also utilizes rubber tires, making the ride just like riding the bus. Its lithium titanate battery allows the train to operate 25 km after only 10 minutes of charging.
