global guideway, forever sustainable utility transportation

This is unlike any other proposal you will see, call in questions, errors and disagreements.

The PRT global jet speed guideway and global fully automated deep geothermal electric supply is designed to be the best possible single system, massproduced and self delivered to all users as a supplier of all energy, personal mobility, public utilities and delivery needs.


One well thought out construction and manufacturing set of designs might do everything more efficiently than all the other specialized industries, modes, infrastructures and vehicle designs.


Applied physics is the guide.  Cost to benefit ratio comparative economics and logistics systems defines the tasks we apply the physics to.  Servicing variables shape the user controlled artificial or AI like operating decisions.


The global guideway is autonomus on demand guideway vehicles, dispatched in seconds to cell  phone or pier service button users. This provides global robotic fully grade separated anywhere access, faster than commercial jets, cheaper than any railway, more convenient than any road vehicle use, all low enough in cost to be built competitively over the top of all existing vehicle, utilities and property uses.


A recreational trip or daily commute, getting a gallon of milk or needing to ship a million tons of water or grain are equally handled by the same all purpose vehicle.  Many vehicles move the world’s commerce and population everywhere door to door, needing no undesirable slowing or stops in route.  This is providing what people need not just what limited ideas have lead them to believe is possible.


The global guideway has to be made up of millions of integrated, collective user directed, autonomus suspended monorail PRT vehicle’s, and supporting machines, serving widely varied needs.


All common existing automated systems have defects in easy to use interfaces and occasional failures.  Short service lives with constant obsolensence and not adaptable to improvements in performance Is common.  Knowing what might work best is difficult.


All guideway problems must be solved at once with no good working systems examples to follow.  Every standard component needs to be flexible, using better than classic PRT redundancy.


The guideway can be a superior replacement for about two thirds of the user cost of the Earth bound economy, connected today only by slow market delivery, layered costly distribution road rail and ocean systems.  Data travels fast, goods and people move slowly.


The guideway can be incrementally debt retired locally at less than a tenth the operating cost of the replaced economic cost segments.


About four decades after start up of impact-invested production this system could be evolving towards nearly free energy, decentralized financial and government management and jet speed transportation for every person and business on the planet to everywhere.  Robotic financial management separation is required.


A PRT style guideway is a structural instead of data based traffic management, hazard avoidance and navigation simplification system.  The skinny vehicle’s are locked into the guideway.


Each vehicle receives local transmited cooperative traffic and user phone dispatch signals plus local directory data,  information on traffic capacity deficits, alternate routes and speed brackets that sets closure rates, joining and leaving trains and maneuvering timing.  Separately vehicles and trains of cooperative vehicles work out adjacent merges.


When there is no labor or investors and their share of taxes and benefits to support, a AI industry can operate like a robotic self supporting charity.  This is physical user choice guided robotic self management.  The few maintainence employees could be local real time electronic assisted contractors.


This is a first time in history creation of an all purpose, selfless, robotic customer interest institution.  This has to be created by  service oriented low margin profit motive manufacturers who sell the best possible robotic and structural product to a global to local guideway trust that is controlled as a user controlled direct daily democratic coop.  A new model for verifiable electronic democracy is proposed.


 Autonomus guideway constructing and operating robot machine systems manage themselves like hundreds of millions of seperate local to global user serving cooperative businesses.


The creating industries could make profits on unimaginable sales volumes sold direct to user controlled cooperatives but avoid the possible fluctuating economic risks from their products local user, operation, maintenance, liabilities, regulations and taxes.


To be unpaid machine AI chairity workers, the robot vehicles and equipment have to be separated from control by govornment and business providers.  Sociopathic management is more common than altruistic management at ever higher levels of control.  Sociopathy can not recognize it’s deficiencies in robots or humans.  All behaviors seem normal usually beyond ethical considerations, inside minds.


The resultant recycled self reproducing mostly robotic economy can evolve to be materials sustainable for large populations for millions of years into our future.


A global access everywhere but local geothermal powered electric guideway is an integrated commercial and personal delivery vending machine that relies on human control of AI management of every vehicle’s operation.  With no ominous central computer, anywhere grid access jet speed PRT would become humanities best friend and true institutional savior.


The global robot guideway and energy machine management system is no more a slave to humans than the unfeeling large sky scraper building elevator and air temperature control and communications systems we use today.  We should never create human ego like programs for such systems, only responsive vending machine management.  You can still responsively talk with your vending machines.


Proposed here is automatic suggestive AI idea category sorting and cross reference systems described further on.  Combined with progressive goal AI personal assistant software on every bodie‘s smart phone, absent a Big Brother neural network, offering personal motivation and organization guidance.  Poverty might be mostly eliminated.  Differential wealth and opportunities will always exist, but ajusted by cheaper fast guideway services for all.


Wealth and arbitrary power is rarely a promoter of productivity improvements but always willing to take the credit and profits.


Happiness and personal mental and activity expansion is the ideal goal directed by personal smart phone advisors, assisting every individual‘s decisions.  Evolutionary conformity verses creativity is a built in human mind flaw.  Persistent outside advice might help most of us learn new mems.


Thousands of writing sessions were required for this first stage identifying and outlining of these ideas.  Years yet are required to input all the collected ideas in this third internet presentation try.  The first cruder 298 page presentation was a little over twenty years ago.  Preceding this was about 9,000 pages of descriptions and aproximately ten thousand alternative component design sketches, seeking all possibile modal and component improvements resuting from several million pages of transportation, energy and production processes technical searches.  This has resulted from at least 18,000 hours of personal research into fully automated aircraft speed, miniature scale, transportation systems, starting over 38 years ago


Road, rail and air vehicle uses would all work better on guideways, where collisions are easier to avoid and useful speed limits on straight PRT train carrying spans are at just below the speed of sound everywhere.


The global guideway vehicle idea is tiny at about 3 to 4 feet in body diameter, but long slender PRT vehicle operation, Proposed are tubular entraining, suspended self lowering access and emergency egress anywhere monorails.  Think of the guideways as providing slender low drag body stiffness no longer requiring large vehicles.


These use TV  occupant vision and vehicle machine operation vision in windowless vehicles.


I started out trying to develope group service suspended monorail ideas at 32 square feet of frontal area, from my being use to using passenger vans compared to busses, railway cars and trucks in carrying passengers, goods and commodities.  This quickly dropped in the first three years to 9 square feet of low drag frontal body area and always two single file seats.


The only way to increase vehicle speed per ton or passenger mile while lowering user cost, is to lower drag or energy cost while at the same time decrease linear access capital investment at every possible property access point or grid mile.


This was occurring in thought processes after looking at the low drag of human powered, maximally streamlined vehicles or enclosed bicycles that soon were able to go over 80 MPH using the just over 2 HP sustainable by an athlete.


In time this attempt at a global mobility systems ideal universal vehicle standard increased to between 14 to 18 square feet frontal area of cylindrical pressurized vehicle bodies.  The trade off was between smaller, everywhere lighter networked, faster, lowest cost transportation infrastructure and passenger emotional comfort with the minimum cross section needed to carry all items people might ever need.


There has never been a real need for automobiles, trucks, railways, large jet aircraft and heavy equipment if known developers had made some version of a miniature fully automated high speed 1890s guideway.  All other vehicles require a need for ever larger versions to be more efficiently controlled by ever fewer wage earning operators.  Hence larger less flexible and slower machines using massive mostly unoccupied facilities.


More compact machine tools and mechanical systems of all kinds will evolve to no longer need expensive large vehicle mobility.


The inter continental movement to gargantuizum is increased because we lacked to this day making smaller faster low drag vehicles that use floating subsurface tethered ocean crossing tubes from which larger ships and jumbo jet economies of dynamic and crew cost reducing scales evolved.


We are stuck now with about $7 trillion yearly being invested in fuel burning infrastructure for profit and about $15 trillion globally tied by habitual commitments every year to the false temporary prosperity of a global fuel burning vehicle economy.  Every decade ever smaller percentages of populations make their living off financialization and transportation towards the main social goal the centralization of wealth and power.


This global guideway shifts investments towards globally interconnected producers chasing increasing shorter term economic gins driving consumption of only unsustainable cost to benefit ratio products and producing systems.


We started automating industries and amusement automatons about 200 years ago.  Similar but different in design automation systems could have eliminated most of the need for human control, allowing for PRT vehicle routing dispatch and traffic operation by the 1870s.  Similar to railway interlocking, preventing collisions existed before electronics was possible, but rarely pursued except in limited high speed production machinery.


Every global jet speed guideway vehicle requires segmentally progressive cellularly inflated, minimal drag, conical over 3:1 aspect streamling on both ends as described further on.


Absent small frontal areas, in longer suspended monorail everywhere station free access PRT vehicle trains or vehicle smooth sided groups, it is presently impossible without using limited loading and unloading access evacuated tubes to provide fast inexpensive transportation.


It is impossible to create aerodynamic lift vehicles of any kind to be as efficient as hard wheel and rail supported high elongation vehicles without the introduction of cheap mass decoupling.  Artifical and repulsion electric micro gravity issues like the history of PRT are up to you to research.


Even a 9 square foot tubular cross section vehicle is capable of carrying, in long trains, hundreds of tons of goods or commodities at jet speed freight railroad costs.  Longer trains and many trains of such slender vehicles with dragster acceleration and deceleration regenerative rates can move well over 50,000 tons a line hour using a ultra low cost light weight monorail guideway.


Such systems components have been demonstrated many times over in the last 135 years but always at the wrong scale, mechanism or structural design.


These small vehicles are large enough to carry all people’s desired movements and goods, faster than commercial jets, but cheaper than heavy freight railways while being low cost enough to reach nearly every house and commercial and popularly accessed spot directly on the planet.  No secondary delivery road or air vehicle system is required, no streets, rural roads, highways, docks

or air ports.


The vehicles need to access every property at ground level or with property owner choice inside building and home entries.  Using automatic doors for suspended small monorails.  The combined vehicle and guideway size passes through a doorway slightly larger than a commercial super market single walk door.


The best known useable design for a total fuel burning free transportation system is suspended inline pancake wheel motors with top and bottom disc guide wheels, in a slot straddeling suspended monorail overhead.  The edges of the motors have narrow 400 to 600 tooth  limited slip equalized torque gear rings that run on accurate pitch diameter gear tooth rails on either side of the slot.


Chains of usually two to eight, most often five of these motors have to support vehicles that are linearly ultra light weight, about the linear weight of small automobiles or lighter if possible.


To keep guideway materials costs down they have to be high structural cross section guideways.  Basalt fiber composit truss lattice cross tube sets have looped ends with locking wedges in them that allow shaping the spans to any imaginable easement and alignment.  These insulating trusses and a corrugated basalt roof section and side rain shedding and bird stop panels fit over five to eight metal longitudinal tubular stringers.  This keeps the weather out but reduces the air resistance through the span walls to reduce vehicle interference drag to a minimum.  Streamlining all minimal practical frontal area gap free trains and vehicle’s and running gear to .06 or less Cd. Is not alone enough.  Commonly shown solid small tubular PRT guideway beams can cause 40% of drag.  Small wheel diameters limit wear life at the highest possible jet speeds.


The suspended vehicles are need to each self lower vertically from the guideway anywhere under stop on line access grids, beside or into all properties and buildings now served by road vehicles.  The access guideway grids replace millions of square miles of side streets, alleyways, parking lots and rural roads everywhere.


In a few decades after the guideways arrive the roads could be removed as desired and replaced with structures, park gardens and farm field land between.  Fully automated planting and maintaining machines could even farm local unused urban lands of any plot size or issolation.


The guideways are a way to automaticly increase forest areas every where desired with spaced out and trimmed tiered production vegetation For unlimited food sources.  Gardened open property Earth becomes a reality in less than a century from the change over.


Climates improve to fit the new land cover conditions.  Increased thermal energy and accepted higher green house gas levels increase the northern useable occupied land area.  Surface evaporation control cover, green house farms and unlimited guideway water supplies allows this global production system almost every where.


Higher speed lower cost mobility over time disperses urban areas to where they would blend into country sides because daily your personal speed of commute travel would be between about 200 MPH to well over 18,000 MPH on ET3 as the eventual weightless surface speed.  It takes anywhere from three seconds to fifteen minutes for acceleration and deceleration at either end to this wide speed range for average people and goods movements.


Roadways are always more costly to build and maintain, self deteriorating, add significantly to flooding problems and stand in the way of utility access and flexible property management decisions adding to the cost of property ownership.  Road vehicle systems are a tolerated global liability in the presence of always unquestioning management and engineering conformisum.


Imagine a fast transportation world, without requiring a single bit of land devoted to road surface and massive bridge right of ways, airports, railways or tens of thousands of square miles of hard surfaces, parking lots, local massive warehousing and garages everywhere.  Surplus paved facilities can find other uses such as local building panel production platforms.


A separate set of amusement park scale light railway rails on the top of the guideway monorail beams allows new guideway parts to travel at lower conventional road and railroad speeds and work on everything around the underside not disturbing the suspended monorail traffic underneath.  Large and longer structures including large building panels can be carried over this top line.  This idea was proposed in the 1970s era German  Cabin taxi prototype PRT system.  Unlike elevated railways this top system’s vehicles are cleated to the rails, like roller coasters, unable to derail and tip off the top Just as the suspended general service vehicles are locked in by the guideway structure.  Not exceeding windage and off set load torsional beam structural limits and compacting the combined overall grade separated crossing heights requires many new design features described further on.


Since the guideways are already elevated high above the highest truck and railroad traffic all crossings are grade separated with little overpassing grade changes required.  Bidirectional differing crossing tier levels would predominate.


The vehicles can self lower from the highest normal access grid sections eliminating the high cost of elevated stations, or any platform or station stop preparation.  Sidewalks for humans and slower wheeled robots and all weather streamlined peddled vehicles become the new sidewalk scale street systems.


The guideway design proposed here can replace all buried utilities on the planet, usually at a lower cost with the fully elevated easy access tubular metal structural channels of the guideway open side and bottom basalt fiber composit insulated  lattice truss beans carrying fiber optics in the high DC voltage tubes and occasionally water in the small mild winter area heated grounded side structural tubes.


Eventually all electricity can be at-property inverted using the guideway loop main DC power supply from local guideway geothermal sources.  No power company using any present sources and seperate new built distribution can likely deliver electricity this inexpensively.  Energy companies get folded into the automated guideway developments.  Guideway electricity can become quickly cheaper than natural gas as a heating source.


We still will need to capture and use up surface bleed natural gas from millions of square miles of land surfaces resulting from fracking, permafrost melt and deep water area melting of methane hydrates.  The oil companies morph into recyclable basalt or glass fiber reinforced plastic sheeting manufacturers.


Green house farming predictability and water conservation might eventually exceed the area of open field work.  Agriculture becomes more stable as the guideways can carry many cubic miles of water everywhere every year.  Deep geothermal waste heat can locally desalinate sea water over isolated land areas.


The global guideways are less than half the cost of access street grids to build.  To rebuild and operate vehicles over the guideways are about 1/10th the present average road vehicle operating combined costs.  One small guideway vehicle replaces about 15 mixed cars and trucks in global useage still providing individual local mobility services most of the time without ever seeing any form of traffic congestion.  Group coordinated stadium crowd loading and unloading was covered two decades ago by Doug Makewicki.


Weather and surface traffic hazards are avoided so speed is limited only by efficiency from low frontal area drag and very high efficiency large diameter but skinny, new wheel motor designs.


You have never seen a guideway design like this because no company or govornment has ever decided to build even one demonstration example.  There has been one test example that worked well for 1889 when it was built around the fairgrounds at Laurel Maryland.  It’s top demonstrated dash speed was just over 150 MPH sustaing for over a hundred running miles at between about 110 to 120 MPH.  A much faster 300 MPH test track was being surveyed near Garden City Long Island when Weems the Baltimore developer ran out of money and gave up in 1892.  Not one person or group pursued this wheel motor maximum speed design path there after.


In the mean time a slower linear motor version test track was built in 1913 at Paterson New Jersey.  These less published developers were working on solving the inefficiency problems of linear motors using remote magnetic read swithces for fully automated selective route control of 80 MPH vehicles.  They found no investor acceptance.


The guideways can replace high cost bricks and mortar educations with mobile guideway personal expierience education access.  This might combine personal cell phone assistance remote instruction and testing and organizing focused learning activities for individuals and groups of students of all ages.  Once in place global education programs can replace most human teachers and allow monitoring-parents a companion learning oportunity based on high access to every place at aircraft speed and low cost.


Never did the 1953 idea of ultra light PRT vehicles emerge until about 1968.  After that year the original minimalist single person vehicle principles were abandoned in favor of minibus and taxicab scale vehicles for no good reasons.  Until the Skytran original proposal, ideal scaling in transportation, about 1990, never was before publicly considered for fast low drag vehicles.


All purpose, stand alone, total replacement, autonomus PRT operates without interruption, never needing a special station stop or platform investment.  PRT is sheltered from freezing rain, desert sun, and snow drifts of any common depth, running above all surface flooding.


The vehicles are as cheap to build as autonomus automobiles but able to travel continuously faster in trains up to the allowed shock wave noise producing speed limit.  Every standard utility PRT  vehicle puts on one to two million miles a year.  The more yearly miles each vehicle travels the faster it pays back it’s cost at a lower user per mile cost.


Design running gear potentials are about twice the speed of sound but incur higher wear at these speeds without elargening the in-line wheel motors to about two meters in diameter instead of the one meter proposed.  A new form of dense maglev rail may be better But remains illusive.


Aircraft fast PRT is a fraction as difficult as slow automated trucks and taxis in mixed traffic with 360 degree hazards and automation decisions, pets, farm and wild animals and pedestrians on winter ice and foggy nights.  None of this slows the hazard free well designed guideways.  No hitting deer.


At 90% of Hyperloop speeds the cost per seat or ton mile of this form of PRT is less due to not needing separate street and rural road systems and vehicles for access in connecting vehicles.  The guideways are cheap enough to be built to most farm land and all city streets.  Jet speed PRT comes to the homes direct connecting people on demand to the globes places and products.  The energy costs are similar but not as cheap as limited access ET3.


This is the only known presentation of large shaft ultra deep, nearly all local or neighborhood geothermal energy required to power the global guideways and all domestic and industrial energy needs for 10,000 to about 50,000 years.  This CO2 transfered geothermal is water pollution free, non stop, needing no fuel peaking or reserve power storage back up system.


9 to 13 miles deep geothermal toughens the earths crust and stability over time, but will be probably be slightly exceeded in consumption than made up for by thermal migration from the hot mantle, so is a non renewable energy source.  In some places this can provide cheap electricity over hundreds of thousands of years.  This is so abundant that after tens to hundreds of thousands of years we will probably figure out a replacement for the deficit.  Thermal radiation loss balance into space remains uncertain even in the controlled absence of green house gases.


This is a starting point from basics in designing towards possible transportation and energy perfection on the first try.  Like all new ideas this is a hard sell.  I have never found a way to talk people of any specialized education level into looking objectively at the ideas which are dispersed through out this site.  People are habitual mental and social creatures, defenders of their secure mutual familiar experiences, not wanting to step out of collective familiar mental safety zones.


Physics and demonstrated mass production equipment sets the narrow path to these guideway designs.  Operating turbine engines, aircraft, space vehicles, race cars and emerging complex vehicle autonomus robotics tells us what we can expect from structures and mechanisms under loads, operational reliability and longevity.


We know exactly how to pursue refining a global guideway’s design details, but because it is socially and mentally discomforting and deferentially hard we chose not to try it.   Jobs, whole industries and  professions are as at risk of total economy bypassing, failure from obsolescence and their demonstrated inabilities to not be able to adapt to complex changes.


Artificial intelligence is unlikely to take over because it has no ego accept as we program for it and no genetic and emotional sensory attachment base to the resources and realities people enjoy interacting with.  A mouse expieriences more pleasure than a self learning biologically unattached global computer.


The global guideway is the ideal accelerator for an artificial intelligent feared take over.  Proposed is totally decentralized zero central computer controlled vehicles using property owner management of local access with fully automated nondescretionary cooperative segmental management of the 5% of the guideways that are not local access but are global connector miles.  Debt retirement and maintainence functions should require neither a human or computer discretionary function not to be confused with AI activity.


Even discussing a total transportation single mode replacement is difficult because it can not practically work exactly like anything that has ever been done before.  People want the comfort of familiarity.  No amount of data or comparisons seems to over come seeking comfort in familiar ideas.  Varying design preferences favoring conventional PRT and simplistic autonomus road vehicle ideas out number best global guideway forms by thousands to one.


The internet and archives are packed with well intentioned bad ideas often in the hope of maybe making a personal profit In an easier to enter small existing market segment.


How do you start up a $60 trillion global guideway capital industry that seems to require being every where all at one time to be viable?  This is no different than building the first of anything like telephones, where it will find the most prolific market place or serving hundreds of these areas then connect them together as advantages emerge.


This proposal is for a non profit public trust global guideway entity that is automatically self managing, paying off investments as fast as possible, with competitively much more efficient faster services systems.


Increasing global productivity is defeated constantly by the failed systems of nationalism and investor capitalism.  Higher velocity of money growth requires faster investment and product through put as well as faster consumer turn over of earnings.  This creates increasing productive wealth filling in the poorest emerging economies first, assuming they can shake off preguduices against universal maximum education, allowing people to take on the more complex world challenges.  A lot to think about, more to learn.


In about 1834 the father of the US patent office created numbered patent number one.  This idea combined with precision machining and the improved metallurgy that followed, combined with more logical design considerations and a leap ahead in the 1850s electric motor ideas might have eliminated by the 1890s any reason to ever pave a highway or operate a commercial aircraft.  This proposal fills in this global technical development dark ages of the last two centuries.


I happen to be a romantic lover of sunsets and river valleys, forests and quaint urban neighborhoods.  The outcome of the last centuries technical commercial evolutionary developments is a hot fully cloud covered world of too warm to swim in equatorial oceans.  Proposed here is a logical fuel burning bypassing revolution.


The 3D global guideway eliminates any need to ever again create earth moving in right of way cuts and fills or leveling sites for buildings to accommodate the surrounding transportation and single level factories because of the inadequacies of in plant mobility that can be replaced by bringing the global guideway vehicles inside the plants on guideway transfer table overhead cranes instead of using lift trucks.


Eliminated is all future need for large heavy machinery, replaced by aircraft light high section moment fast moving ground level freed up machines used to build similarly light surface structures.  No massive earth moving will ever again be required for development accept for dam making.


Unfortunately I am the only proposer so far pursuing the global single mode total replacement guideway details, that I can find.  There are two other self lowering PRT systems plus the Titan industries owner’s description to me in a phone conversation.  And a US Army movie about an assault cable monorail , possibly a Titan project, I saw in the late 1950s.


There have been many thousands of people who have willingly given critical design advise that I sought and simple encouragement or occasional angrily criticizing the idea using every excuse possible to deride it.  Never do they understand the as yet unseen details of self lowering, ultra light weight, jet speed, wheel supported and guided PRT.  They are occasionally right in their negatives which in turn requires solutions to try to avoid their dire predictions.  The detractors would have been against steamship, railroads, automobiles and aeroplane development.


Make lists of what is ideal and what is undesirable and everything we are doing today in transportation and energy, even public water and sewer utilities will be on the undesirable list in every way except that the present road based and high cost buried infrastructure already exists.  In the total absence of a replacement design that is cost to benefit competitive there is nothing to compare with.


This proposal‘s designs leading to single mode all public utility operations can get along nicely without any land fills, incinerators, gravity sewer systems, electric power, lighting and phone line poles and buried networks, fire and police stations, and road and air lift ambulance services.


Standard multi purpose jet-fast self lowering guideway vehicles take over all of these functions and brand new types of personal activity, public services and commerce.  This is identical to the introduction of smart phones with everywhere access to the internet.  This can all occur during the global instant commerce transition at a much lower fully automated service cost.  This is a universal transportation and all utility services global vending machine.


To be global the network requires ocean tube guideway highways, floating and angle tethered to the bottom by neutral buoyancy tethers about 100 feet below the surface.  Air vent tubes float on the surface.  Mid ocean geothermal power provides local electricity around which sea steading farms and community anchorages might build with jet speed guideway commerce to often more expensive to live in land areas.


The ocean guideway grid would go different routes than current shipping and airline lanes because crossing land is cheaper than ocean tube miles and large airport and harbor hubs are totally bypassed.


We have learned to work with the road vehicle at grade defects and universally in ignorance accept it‘s present accident and pollution yearly world death toll at about three million people a year as a blame it on the victims sacrifice for modern living.  Two thirds of the world's impoverished emerging populations still do not own a personal vehicle.  Paved road vehicle land hungry surface guideways are being built everywhere.


The PRT global elevated full length access and egress guideway is a all purpose, jet speed, personal autonomus vehicle, useable by any child or handicap or old person who can follow simple verbal or pictorial instructions to dial a phone can get themselves any where in the world they could afford the one to five cents a mile vehicle operational cost.  Shared vehicle use costs less.


Each vehicle might commonly have about 18 cubic meters of cabin personal or moving partician subdivided space behind a possibly 1.5 square meter external frontal area, able to carry one or two or in longer lengths three tons.


Decision makers are universally opposed to PRT because they do not see in it a way for them or their institutions to leverage it or continue to make a living of it.


PRT saves money by eliminating all human management and long term investor profits.  Ideally the guideway users control and pay for debt retirement as soon as possible.  Automated installation systems cut costs about in half.  The substitution for more expensive basalt composit  cross wise and steel longitunals reduces materials weight enough that cheaper dirt fill, concrete and asphalt costs are greater considering line capacity and the elimination of parking and land area costs.


In large decision areas, like environmental collapse or technological end of improvement stagnation or global emerging single economy and govornment we have almost universal ethical disengagement as a govornment and corporate standard.


We want to go places quickly and get deliveries yesterday.  Most people would enjoy cheap fast holidays a thousand miles to a coast for a warm swim or fishing and return for work the same day.  People could hold jobs or get special schooling or visit relatives daily hundreds to thousands of miles from their homes.  Everybodies roaming range would increase.  most products could be automaticly delivered direct from the producer to globally distributed homes, nonstop world wide, faster than commercial limited range jets fly today, cheaper than Amazon or Walmart retailing.  Recreational shopping will continue.


We have to develop ET3 evacuated tubes, better than Hyperloop, for unlimited future speed or make in air guideway vehicles that are easier to access that can travel at near the speed of sound but use little energy doing it.  Road vehicles are slow even when fully autonomus and VTOL drone taxi and delivery systems are prone to catastrophic failures, not operable in really bad weather and a hundred times more expensive than the global guideway is to operate.


Most aerodynamic drag for short bodied vehicles is form or frontal area drag.  As vehicles gain smooth longer end tapers this drag is reduced to a minimum of about 1/20 the square corner flat end drag, like most trucks, busses, ships and railroad bodies have.  Reducing air resistance makes ideally streamlined short vehicles several times longer.  By reducing the frontal area and increasing the length still farther, elongating the loads, you reduce the drag more with slight gains in skin friction up to bodies of  about 20:1 length to cross section width ratio.  This skin friction is also being reduced up to about 400 feet long in flexible trains of slender vehicles, where in still cross winds, skin drag reduction length advantage equalizes out as an inverse parabolic curve of decreasing drag to volume ratio.  This is due to the air stream adjacent to the vehicle being attached to still air by layers of slipping turbulence or energized air the drag energy that propulsive power put into it in the first few frontal feet.  Studies done on high speed railway drag give different results than studies done on shorter body aircraft drag.


Take an airliners passenger and cargo volume and many times it‘s loaded weight and stretch it out to 8 or more times it’s length, throw away the wings, tail, fuel and tanks and electricly propel it by pickup rail, with zero traction slip, at less than railway hard wheel on steel rail rolling friction, at one fortieth the wing load lift friction of the aircraft and you have this vehicle system.  All together possibly 100 to 500 times more cost efficient than an aircraft and zero crew or terminal human operators are needed any more than you need an operator or manager for a push button controlled building elevator.


Add to this low cost electricity at one  fifth or less the cost of fuel and you can carry grain and ore world wide at sea level (no crashing) guideways every where in the world direct farm or mine or factory to customer, bypassing multi handling and mark up delivery stages and you have a world economy with about one third or less the overhead cost.  Product prices drop accordingly as well as capital productive efficencies increase.


Personal average wealth continues to rise causing decreasing population growth usually an outcome of poverty and low education levels.  This allows totally integrated global trade and eventually tension free cosmopolitan global govornment, a global citizen identity and global free market.


The 6% of global transportation jobs disappear but for a time it will still take some factory workers to build the guideways and vehicles.  In the 1980s when I first started collecting information on a global guideway the transportation job share was dropping steadily from about 9% of jobs.  Retail jobs will start to disappear.  They will have competition as the global guideway brings all on vehicle vending retail to the most remote and impoverished places from every other place nonstop in minutes to hours from moment of harvest prosseing or manufacturer packaging, nearly always in the same working days time.


This becomes the first safe walkable animal habitat world since railways and road vehicles we’re invented.  The highly tapered end guideway designs would kill fewer birds than trucks, cars and building window impacts.


This is about creating a global overhead monorail structure that is eventually 40 million miles long, connecting nearly all buildings together with door to door shipping and travel access, faster than jets, more efficient than railways, creating lower cost multi ten thousand year cheap ultra deep geothermal steady state electric supply as the guideway grid advances and guideway automation recycling all human and eventually most natural wastes.


This is desired by all of us but not pursued by anybody so far.  Even PRT advocates have never understood all of the details in one proposal


Modifying, improving and adding on to the existing systems is considered by absolutely all that publish as the only solution, not replacement with vastly superior systems, not even openly researching superior systems attributes.


PRT supporters have seen their fully automated and highest speed systems as contributors to a slow railroad, road and air vehicle world, not replacing the other modes but connecting them at the edges.  Limited market goals leads to limited design performance expectations.


All new systems design criteria are treated as not possible or practical if they do not use road vehicle rubber traction running gear, flanaged railroad, wing supported aircraft or water displacement ships as the starting points.  Nearly all PRT vehicle proposals use wheel systems similar to road and railroad wheels.  All maglevs proposals so far are clumsy, bulky and inefficient.


in an PRT emergency stop, all vehicles behind the at risk vehicle, instantly progressively slow down with only the first following vehicles stopping at three Gs or faster, about four times faster stops than locked road vehicle brakes in stopping.


Closing the gaps in PRT traffic between vehicles while forming low drag trains of convienience at every opportunity is nesscessary to increase the traffic activity or merge and demerge spaces between vehicles.  Center of train entry and exits at switches-turnouts is a coordinated activity of all the vehicles near by acting as one vehicle control system.  Failure is not a possibility or the automation design.


This is the first in history micro tooth narrow gear wheel support and traction system.  This is not a classic cog railway.  The support is a varying small momentary spot arc segment gear tooth root contact angle and micro gear rail tooth barrel top.


The wheel motors are effectively rotary maglev systems with a low friction positive or zero slip gear traction mechanical motion support and propulsion contact.  The maglev and motor close clearance gap is mechanically controlled at all speeds by the needle bearing centering.  Torsional forces on the bearings virtually does not exist.  Reducing differential thermal expansion between rails and wheel rims is a required solution of a complex problem, explained further on.


The vehicles and their guideways have to be light in weight enough, less than 200 pounds per linear foot of vehicle length on entrained lines and less than one to three vehicles allowed per span on the 95% of the access to every property grid miles, to make the guideways less expensive to install and use beside every property than continuing to use any form of road or air vehicle for personal access and deliveries.


The battery free propulsion guideways need very low cost electricity that is sustainable and local almost anywhere.  They then become the lowest cost electric supply almost anywhere.  Electricity then replaces the more expensive use of natural gas and coal.


No short trip to work, shopping and school with this set of designs, would ever travel most of the trip at less than about 100 MPH peak speed a few blocks away to 200 MPH across smaller urban areas to 400 to 650 MPH for trips over about 20 to 50 miles.  Very high broad efficiency maps and incremental coil and motor throtting mean high regenerative efficiencies meaning acceleration losses are no longer as significant.  Speed is limited by acceleration lanes and traffic density allowing entry gaps.


The design loading is for one G normal acceleration and less if the user chooses for economy and comfort over increased trip speed.  Automatic selective routing places vehicles with similar speed choices in their respective traffic patterns.  Guideway span mounted code transmitters tell vehicle’s what speeds are allowed variably to accommodate conditions and curves and warn of wind, tidal wave and earthquake events.


This is from factory and farm doors, direct to every global users properties, all in the same vehicles that carry people where ever they want to go on immediate demand direct non stop if they chose and deliver bulk farm products.


Refuse and sewage collection with universal total recycling is possible with special PRT collectors that lower cost sort and condense wastes from all properties and nonstop take them directly to remanufacturing processors.  If you can make the transportation for categorized wastes cheap enough over long distances the you can find a cheaper use for almost everything than land filling or incinerating.


If you want to support global guideway development several new parent companies will have to be influenced to get together to start production prototype and tests of first in history systems.  All the basic necessary mechanisms, processes and materials already exist in other uses.


Some company has to make micro tooth rack gear rails with very high speed forging and tungsten cap bonding.  We could adapt existing high speed punch presses with self dressing rotary forge heads to use a hot core feed stock instead of cold die sets, for instance.  Caps can be inverse protrusion resistance or spot welded using high frequent current on the ends and DC in the centers.

Global door to door unified transportation and energy

all properties worldwide are connected together

  • This is about replacing all existing fuel burning transportation and energy infrastructure on the planet with a single vehicle design running outside of a vacuum tube, mostly at near sea level  high drag air pressure.
  • Because the vehicles are small in frontal area and run in parallel smooth gap free sided bodies in long passing trains they join up with above about 200 MPH they have little more drag than Hyperloop considering fan and choking losses for the short Hyperloop vehicle’s.
  • This is a universal global public utility as a jet speed PRT guideway, a global guideway that is cheaper to build to people’s homes than making streets and utilities to properties.
  • This an all purpose operating fully elevated above all surface activities as a global to local fast as possible transportation replacement, free of all fuel burning, solar and wind power most places.  
  • Electricity is provided less expensively tha local natural gas and coal over time by guideway placed ultra deep, local almost everywhere on Earth, geothermal electric system.  Wind, solar, wave and hydro power require storage expenses or large scale mostly inactive high voltage grid costs almost everywhere.
  • All guideway users could get their electricity, water delivery, minimized sewage recycle and trash total recycled and carried away along with door to door jet speed postal and retail delivery service.  Everything comes along with the guideways including improved lower cost internet, cable TV and superior cell tower services.
  • All these built in guideway new services are cheaper because no human labor management or profits would be attached to the services.  No payroll, dividends, insurance, retirement, and medical overhead.
  • The guideway design is an roboticly installed accessory Erector set of attachment rails, tubes and channels.  If you can imagine a fixed or vehicle based service the power and distribution infrastructure does not require local sales or service labor and facilities.
  • Unloaded of nearly all utility transportation and energy costs the rest of the global economy booms.  The cost of living for poorer classes, the cost of everything might drop by about two thirds of the present cost to make and deliver products and services.  global economy human cost overhead to about one third the present cost.
  • Poorer people will usually spend this dividend excellerating growth through consumption driven demand.  Wealthier people would likely tend to spend this dividend away investing in high profit opportunities before spending to plemade themselves.
  • The global guideway can be designed using proven basic PRT engineering and operational principles.  These have universally never before been applied to all purpose utilitarian transportation, at least that I can locate information on.
  • Instead we engineer constant improvements to previously used but functionally unimprovable and obsolet human labor based transportation that is technically not perfectable, basicly flawed systems that are management intensive modes.  Transportation supported by engineers and contractor suppliers creates for ever jobs for the owners and leaders.
  • All existing modes are beyond practical improvements of any kind.  Design, genetic like , technical birth defects are transferred inside all proposed transportation improvements based on never demonstrated mathematical assumptions and narratives of the existing infrastructure evolveing naturally toward perfection and too big to fail or we can not afford to reproduce the existing fixed facility access points.
  • These road based property access facilities are replaced in this proposal by a new set of at grade unimproved access points.
  • Self lowering vehicles operating out of harms way fully above ground level activities are reachable at any point under a stop on line guideway.  These can only be PRT suspended monorail vehicles.
  • This is derived from barn hay loft monorails of the late 1800s to overhead traveling cranes and the Titan Industries self lowering access monorail handeling and passenger designs that were publicly known, tested, and proposed for industrial and military uses but never prototyped for general public and commerce use.
  • The guideways replace public buried utilities and the pavement and curb surface road flaws that mar every properties human utility and esthetics.  Because driveways, parking lots and 25% typical paved right of way urban land use is integral to modern existence we do not think of road vehicles as unsightly.  Urban light pole forests are tolerated but guideway piers and spans are easy xenophobic targets because they are unfamiliar and not equated with future personal opportunity improvement.
  • Instead of seeking supplier profit systems this proposal seeks user cost reduction, dramatically faster dispatched local response and increased trip speed with a streamlined constantly advancing global unified economy.
  • All products using this high speed low drag global guideway would be on average 1,200 miles away, only a couple of hours away from the end of a farm or factory output to the final user, non stop direct every where.  From the opposite side of the planet 12,000 miles is covered non stop in less than 22 hours.  Just like driving a personal car you can get off the guideway and leave Freight as well as passengers travel this fast since the energy cost of these skinny randomly mixed load trains and the vehicle cost to occupied time ratio is small.
  • The first factor is finding a minimalist scale of new economy practical utility.  I started calculating 38 years ago at a starting point of 32 square feet external body frontal area based on having hauled and traveled with tens of thousands of load tons, trips, items numbering in the millions handled.  This quickly decreased to 9 squared feet in several analytic stages then shot back up and down between 12 and 18 square feet with various special oversized low mass per volume vehicles and hundreds of designs that changed shape to streamline larger cross sections.
  • compare this to trucks at 110 square feet at CDs of .8, freight railways at 150 square feet at CDs in multiple whole numbers, commercial aircraft at between 300 to 900 square feet at CDs of around .05 and larger ships with areas a third often in water of 2,500 to 30,000 square feet with poor drag coefficients in air and CDs of occasionally .05 under water and multipule whole numbers in air.
  • All of the conventional systems do not work easily without expert human crew and terminal facilities costs tripleing their operating costs as well as slow trip miles per day.  These factors and the high fuel cost of on demand energy multiply the cost of all deliveries into market places and make most tonnages local in a potentially global economy.
  • Evacuated tube and aerial mass and time decoupled vehicles also have utility to cost or trip activity limits that can be comparatively calculated.  Demonstration is always required but first we need this proposals upper limit prototypes to be built and tested to destruction and wear out.  Decoupled and repulsion free flight systems are not cost comparable or dipole polluting problems identified to know how they compare.
  • Size and linear weight changes in calculations  over the years made large differences in the ability to build low cost access guideways.  Size and mass independent value chains set their own limits based on market and user utilities.  All inputs in the calculations created new design problem goals and market possibilities.
  • These are the simple factors, the rest gets complicated but well within known component and structure demonstrations of inertial and cyclic stresses, friction and cost limits.
  • The guideway vehicles are self dispatched through on vehicle area cell tower isolated overlapping nets Not to be confused with the global internet or voice and data to 5G.
  • The vehicles self dispatch cooperatively only if they have no competitive profit goal in operation.  This can never be a competing corporate interests seeing who can get the customer first but only who can serve the customer user best and cheapest.  Vehicle and users are, instantaneously seen to the user ,sorted out and arrival pick up time presented to the user.
  • Every vehicle could pick up people and goods anywhere along or under the guideway access grids, like a mini car or truck automated taxi cab never needing any special station other than occasionally preferred all weather comfort interior lobbies at activity and commercial and residential main buildings.  Eventually residences tha can afford a garage and driveway will have a interior guideway portal connection to living quarters.  The vehicle designs haul like a truck, as cheap as a supertanker can transport by the ton but faster than commercial airliners.  All in one this systems specs should make them the best choice and least cost for every kind of mobility.
  • These guideway vehicles can be built to go through drive through service window lanes mixed in lines of personal and autonomus road vehicles
  • Every proposed guideway vehicle should have on board near guideway 150 feet to both sides fire fighting equipment at a small weight increase loading with 300 to 600 gallons of water when needed.  Every vehicle can serve as an ambulance to get people with medical emergencies to hospitals faster than today’s helicopters can even arrive at the emergency.
  • The guideway dementional and operation specifics allow it to be many times more energy efficient, a small fraction the user personal and commercial mobility cost, at least 200 times safer than roads and a range of nine to twenty times faster for all measures of goods and people movements by comparison with all other existing and future proposed transportation in 2019.
  • The global guideway vehicle is a tubular skinny body that self lowers by a cross strap hoist system to any place under a guideway to pick up and deliver.
  • Once loaded the high lift power to weight ratio ascender fast lifts and rapidly starts moving towards other vehicles going the same direction forming increasingly long trains of such vehicles.  Catching up to, or being cought up with, adjacient trains includes the trains splitting at a full speed switch and one or several vehicles fills the gap.  Zero room for error requires PRT style redundancy.
  • We can not foresee as yet totally unknown possibilities that might be compeditive with this. But it is unlikely any future system can match the lower guideway installed cost and full access every property guideway direct access grids everywhere that road vehicles are presently used.  Many places that are inexcessable by all exiting transportation are fully reachable with a guideway that can even be bolted to verticle rock walls, reached cheaply by the ultra light weight guideways.
  • This proposal consists of structural, mechanical and electric dimensioned speculative design specifics as well as many variations of first time mass production engineering systems needed to build it.
  • Sustainability here is absolute and has layers of continuing future plans, lesser alternatives and contingencies based off this 1981 starting point design optimization quest.  The basic global guideway design is based on applied physics, cost to benefits ratios and all known comparative design options.
  • All individuals have to benefit in the long run with their radically different economic situatatins, aspirations, work, lifestyles and industrial needs.  This is all handled by a single design, all purpose, do almost anything vehicle.  This suspended monorail race-car-truck-train workhorse can provide total mobility replacement, nearly unlimited, lower cost personal and commercial transportation at speeds thought impossible by conventional engineers.  New tooling and package electric plants can be place and service by the guideway two part mobility system then it distributes the electricity at little transmission cost for low user cost electricity.
  • This is the only article you will find, that I know of, that leads directly to permant universal almost unlimited energy and transportation possibilities that result in permant environmental improvements.  We can still waste the benefits provided or learn from the minimal scale in achieving the lowest cost at the highest just below sonic speed.
  • The obvious but rarely pursued way to lowest cost at the highest practical speed is lower frontal area, lower guideway interference drag, lower skin friction, lower cooling pumping losses lower normal conditions parasite drag and lower rolling friction.
  • This is histories first high speed vehicle design that uses direct electric propulsion that does not slip in traction.  Mass decoupling allows air or water attoms to slip, shockwave free, at hyper velocities around a aerial vehicle of large frontal area.  This guideway lives in real viscous friction so has to minimize at the same time frontal area per average ton or volume, smoothness and zero gaps or ridges between entrained either end forward vehicles with any vehicle able to take the front or rear position at a drag coefficient of under .06 to .05.
  • If you have a million tons of water to move you load three tons in each 20 foot long independent vehicle, join a couple hundred vehicles into a train or two and make round trips at 200 or more MPH.  The guideway vehicle water pipeline moves through the 1/800 water density air instead of moving the higher friction water through a pipe.  The drop in friction makes the mobile pipeline more efficient at higher speed.
  • Proposed here is the first known variable coil tap and mechanical variable integrated air gap control and mechanical contact in nitrogen reduced pressure commutation wheel motors.
  • Small fast vehicle trains are cheaper than large slow vehicles and beat commercial aircraft speeds.
  • This systems design should be permanatly neutrally sustainable for tens of thousands of years of massive human occupation of Earth.  This assumes no major industrial based fuel burning system we presently use remains to deplete resources and the thriving self sustaining ecology.
  • leveraging the global guideway’s early development stages requires the introduction of zero displacement and dynamic all SES lift roll and pitch control small frontal area highly elongated segmental sea trains to increase intercontinental traffic in becoming near aircraft speed tonnages and passenger movement.  These sea trains have been weakly proposed and never analytically designed.  They would burning no combustion fuel during and after the introduction of the Davis like cross ocean global guideway tube networks of minimal frontal area in air and ET3 land network connections.  Sea trains are needed to develope large scale seasteading and ocean based agriculture that produces ten times or more per atrifical average than land based fields.  Sea trains are described latter on in a separate website.
  • A global PRT guideway can eliminate all future practical needs for fuel burning By relying on local ultra deep geothermal electricity placed automatically by the guideway system as it advances supplying all energy needs from a local multi thousand year source.
  • Aside from the environmental oxygen increase and reducing acidification of the oceans, this leads to very low cost pollution free industrial to residential cheaper than the cheapest fuel use electricity.
  • The proposed design for aerodynamicly minimalist slender vehicles would have light weight high rim velocity chains of five to eight wheel motors that could develope 1,500 to 2,500 KW per 2,500 pound vehicles that are faster than present commercial jets
  • these vehicles provide personal and goods transportation at lower than heavy rail costs, everywhere door to door nonstop direct On new light weight per mile large open structure, large cross section suspended monorail spans.
  • The proposed vehicle designs can operate in trains at 90% of the speed of Hyperloop without the side span evacuated tube windage capital cost, at about double the energy requirement or about .5 cents more in electricity use per mile.
  • The difference is there are no airlocks and the vehicles can descend, station free, to load at ground level beside every property for direct door to door access on a world wide guideway network.
  • You could go to work every day from your house cross the commute distance at 100 MPH to 200 MPH at about 2 cents to 7 cents a user cost mile compared to 40 cents a mile for the least expensive to on average own and drive personal IC automobiles.  Fastest speed, most convenient access at the lowest user and societal costs likely ever practical.
  • Reducing span visibility is described further on.  This is less visually objectionable than the all present streets with vehicles running and parked everywhere on and around them.
  • This system is above all ground level activities and most structures.  You could walk bike everywhere with out crossing a guideway vehicle path once the last road vehicle operator switched from ar decade transport to fully elevated transport.  The universal first of a kind proposal vehicles carry all people and goods at presently unthinkable speeds and costs lower per mile than typical bicycling, with simpler automation accuracy, away from surface level hazards, up in the tree tops.
  • Every trip involves seeing scenery around you from the more pleasant second story high or higher level.  Further on is described a system tha lets you chose your viewing height level as you trave within options available on heavier traffic through lines to see your surroundings as if you were flying in an aircraft at the same or slow motion speeds described further on.
  • The fast, just over one ton universal use vehicles, spread their weight evenly out over the longest practical large diameter disc wheel suspended monorail beam length.  This is better than the original Whopertal Enos designs in the 1890s but never revisited in prototypes.  This allows lower guideway installation cost at less than about half the cost of maintaining existing streets and highways over time.
  • Full production and installation Systems component designs simplify activity tasks using fully automated mass produced and production and installation components.  This lowers the manual concrete based guideway design costs to about 1/10th to 1/30th the cost of often cabin guideway proposals at less than the cost of Transit X - Skytran style streamlined window pods.
  • This requires a different way to improve handicapt access for their universal independent mobility on this systems design.  Kids of almost any young age can more safely use this system to go where needed by themselves, including replacing school busses as described further on.
  • Narrow flat rim contact disc guidewheels and micro gear differential dual rim support and propulsion wheels are proposed to solve histories vehicle traction defect and rolling resistance problems.  None of this has elsewhere been publicly proposed.  This allows lower than flanged wheel railroad rolling resistance at greater than the best present traction motor efficiency map performance.  A possibly new variable attraction angle and axial unloading needle bearing arrangement increases the time between overhauls at turbine engine rim velocities exceeding an allowed about 950 feet per second straight guideway speed.
  • The faster the most efficient design vehicles are the fewer vehicles are needed to provide all mobility services to every body including all goods, water and materials delivery movements using the same in motion self converting vehicles.
  • Separately accessed vehicles close ranks with adjacent vehicles and trains of such vehicles going the same route.  This constantly makes more room for entering vehicles and reduces frontal area drag and energy use.
  • These tiny vehicles in numbers needed for each task at any given time replace the use of large trucks, ships, railroads and aircraft as well as all the uses we have for automobiles, busses, bicycles and longer walking trips.  One such vehicle on a fully connetted guideway network replaces about one semi, delivery or dump truck, as well as additionally about 10 to 15 automobiles or one commercial aircraft now needed for all mobility.
  • 65% of the present six trillion US personal miles are urban with about one third being between cities.  This will change rapidly as you could afford to commute on the global guideway from your homes property line vehicle access point to cities and rural areas hundreds of miles away as fast and cheaply as you commute today in a car to a near by job in town.
  • There has never before been a vehicle design even distantly close to this proposal.  The proposed internal systems and direct vehicle to vehicle and to local user cell phone communications network nurtures the connective needs of humans and all desirable institutions and businesses.
  • New forms of residential housing are proposed that can be present property improvement or built away from all conventional utility connections, needing only the guideway itself to provide at a lower cost environmentally neutral support systems including all financial service and self govornment needs.  This is using the proposed user guided software system for home occupant self management.
  • This proposal is for the basic dementioned designs of a jet aircraft speed, globally connected, self lowering anywhere under the guideway PRT type vehicle access directly to all properties, no stations needed anywhere.  This is instead of continuing to use unsustainable streets, rural roads and highway networks.  This is faster and many times more efficient than commercial aircraft.
  •  This is a self opportunity entraining personal rapid transit or PRT system.  Independently routing PRT guideway automated taxis and delivery trucks can run railroad efficient only if properly designed.  In trains well designed parallel sided vehicles become more efficient than railroads at about 1/15th the gap free frontal area and 1/90th or less the aerodynamic drag.  Lower drag per passenger or ton mile is converted into higher speed using a lower cost base load electric energy supply.  The fully automate guideways place the electric generation system that supplies the guideway’s and participating adjacent propertie’s electricity at about half to a fourth or less the cost of most fuel burning wire distribution electric utilities.  The guideway structure is the conductors.
  • This is proposing a global national government free transportation world by bringing all the world’s economies together as one.
  • This is libertarian local to global user directed transportation.  This is proposed as free enterprise transportation offered directly to property owners in mass then letting them in neighborhood groups decide on the alignments and forms of the services.  The user deciders have to be individually connected to internet or cell phones or feathered in frequent meetings.  Protecting from industry, investor and govornment manipulation becomes a complex problem as always.
  • Most govorments allow non interfering public utilities access to properties along streets, utility ROWs and alley ways.  The proposed design installation system can place several stake driven pier miles a day directly from the just installed last pier and span.  All machinery, parts and the few crew involved travel overhead on a separate set of service rails or underneath with the regular goods and passenger traffic.  This includes placing tight radius curves without any ground level equipment road access or crew.  Details are described further on in the menus pages.
  • A mediating constantly adjusting software is proposed to automatically try to smooth out differences between neighbors using a automation response system mimicking know human sucsessful mediator practices.  The mediating process requires the emerging AI idea recognition only in the areas required for sucsessful transactions redirecting to human consultants when cooperative progress breaks down.  Question and multiple choice answers combined with text user answers with local design outcomes returned taylored to each person’s choices.  Alignments and client property ID shown only for adjacent property owner privacy.  Result statistical comparisons are then constantly adjusted to show each design stage.  Service demonstration videos show different access forms connected to the global guideway network.
  • Companies make profits off the machinery they mass produce.  Users effectively become the collective on going management through a local to global public service guideway utility trust.  Users together become the default owners of the guideways and vehicles they use.  This would be a global coop or global public trust controlled by direct democracy.  This is a replacement for elected oligarchy forms of representative government presently common almost everywhere.  The automated management program creates a shadow democratic self regulating and management process administration, always subject to allowance by local govornments.
  • The way we organize transportation today benefits mostly sociopathic tending wealthy investors, politicians and executives.
  • The world bank shows the 30 year global fuel based infrastructure needs at about $34 trillion for roads, $28 trillion for electricity, $11 trillion for railroads, $15 trillion for for telecommunications, $8 triiion for water transportation.  Add to this about $70 trillion for vehicle and equipment fleet replacement and third world additional vehicles and equipment at possibly $15 trillion and facilities additions no longer need by the global guideway at an additional one time surplus saving of about $50 trillion and fuel based energy savings at about $60 trillion in 30 years and you have about three to four times the cost using the present fuel burning infrastructure compared to the here proposed designs and installation systems for the all new infrastructure replacing global guideway.
  • The global economy would be speed up in velocity of money increase, reduction in inventory drag on the velocity of money, an improvement by as much as three times in average individual human productivity time to individual consumptive values and a brick wall stop of the increase in environmental degradation by separating land and industrial water uses from the ecosystem’s requirements.

This proposal is fearful in it’s uniquly unfamiliar components that in my life time I have never heard of, myself reading everything extensively.  I am interested in ideas that might improve or refine a ultimately best human future.  All questions, objection and additions are appreciated.

  • The heavy equipment that is operator centric that is presently used to install or transport anything or build buildings, run farms, build and maintain everting is replaced by autonomous universal guideway scaled tool carriers.  Big operator controlled equipment become too heavy and slow and is no longer needed.  No transportation fuel storage refinery or super site clean up costs, no contaminated aquifers, no acidfied ocean costs and the present gas station fuel distribution systems costs.
  • PRT systems were first thought of as fully automated mail and goods carriers in the 1880s to 1920 eras, then forgotten about until a single proposer in 1953.  It was not until 1968 that the idea started to spread world wide.
  • This system is configured as an all purpose global public utility all electric guideway span, steel not copper or aluminum conducted electric grid and transportation system.  Read everything you can on PRT transportation systems and you will still lack 99% of what is detailed here.
  • How do you describe a system we could have developed over a hundred years ago that would have bypassed this whole fuel burning era we now live in?  This design set is what smart cell phones and the internet are compared to telegraph communications in comparing the global guideway advances to all present public utilities government and business administrated transportation and energy systems.
  • This is about an all new fully elevated totally station or platform free suspended monorail transportation infrastructure.  This should best be powered by local sourced ultra deep geothermal shafts bored by fully automated flame slotting, segmental core, cog gear ascender removal boring machines placed by the advancing PRT guideways every few miles.
  • The guideway power grid builds the guideway industries, provides logistics and construction energy, sinks all new ultra deep geothermal shafts that provides the energy incrementally replacing all fuel burning and most wind power systems at lower user cost.
  • Autonomous packaged turbo expander generator sets in several units would be placed to provide electricity to the guideway’s structural conductor built in loop main power grid.
  • Mass production like for automobiles lowers all the component cost along with the fully automated distribution and sales system with turers would at first make profits and be in competition with each other for improvements and lowest cost.
  • As energy demands increase, more closed cycle high rim velocity generator condenser compressor sets and side thermal extraction hole drilling units would be placed at each shaft to keep up with demand.
  • Replacing 30 to 50 year present accepted cycles of overlapping incremental infrastructure capital investment cycles of all the existing global infrastructure costing just over 100 trillion dollars per cycle.  To move these cycles out to 200 or more years at a lower cycle cost we need all new forms of infrastructure.  This requires radically more efficient systems that must move from reliance on the present legacy obsolete industrial infrastructure to a more efficient stand alone local energy infrastructure.
  • You can not carry out a war that destroys such infrastructure as well as during the deepest snow, worst ice Storms, floods , tsunamis, most earthquakes this PRT Design remains portionally operational when all other systems stop operating until cleared or repaired.
  • Using local cheaper amortized investment fuel cost free electricity to power everything is the core.  The proposed often over ten miles deep geothermal has an continuing energy cost in the cost of the turret drill packs that will have to constantly drill new spaced out holes that will be depleted in energy regressively over decades to centuries.  First drilled holes can become pre heaters for latter drilled holes.  Changing the binary gas mix used both for extraction and in the turbines can over time improve generating efficiencies as strata temperatures decline giving a reprieve from momentary new investments.  Always over time new extraction holes will have to be added along with new shaft depth and divergent angled new shafts added over the centuries from the first main shaft. Rural communit and area generators might be good for 5,000 to 20,000 years depending on population densities and industrial consumption.  At a certain point a global ocean geothermal extraction system and electric grid will be needed.
  • Artificial SES type floating islands may be cheaper than land occupation returning vast areas of less productive farm land to natural habitats. This is far less costly than coal mining and oil drilling where the easy locations are extracted first leaving more expensive difficult supplies for the future.  Of course the acidification of the oceans and lakes and the heating of the atmosphere to unlivable levels will happen in the next century of fuel burning as we do today.
  • This is a battery free world system.  No energy storage is needed at all, not even at levels of vehicle batteries.  Electricity is feed multi directionally from closely spaced multi redundant sources.  Overload on every vehicle demand response and shorting fused protections do not stop mobility or isolate vehicles in catastrophes.  Emergency vehicles on the guideway might have batteries for unique possibilities but rarely need them.  Every guideway vehicle proposed here can be equipped for ambulance, adjacent fire fighting and police assistance.
  • Residential or industry PV or wind systems get back up power from the guideway.  There need be no  competition between utilities if the users collectively democratically make all administrative decisions not special interest influenced decisions.
  • The locally available geothermal energy under the whole planets area exceeds all the oil, coal, natural gas and nuclear power by many tens to thousands of times without polluting the atmosphere.  Over thousands of years each geothermal well, about 20 miles apart, can access around 1600 cubic miles of hot rock between 7 to 11 miles deep, efficiently extracting over time the equivalent energy of about 300 million barrels of oil in thermal energy per cubic mile.  This is based on a posted estimate, not my own calculations.  I am not sure what the bottoming condenser temperature and efficiency was for this shallower resource estimate.  This is unlimited steady state fuel free local electricity for between about 10,000 to 100,000 years of highly technical human needs for around ten billion people, without adding any solar or wind power to the base load steady state supply extending our our energy based future to the liveable life of our sun and survivable preparations for random galactic radiation bursts.
  • The proposed production engineering systems to access these large shaft diameter geothermal miles deep production zones cheaper than we drill small diameter shallower oil wells today will be described in the menu addendum pages.
  • To do all of this requires making the total replacement global utility guideway systems components and their automated decision making self management systems much lower in user first year costs including debt retirement rate than the lowest cost possibilities presented by all other systems possibilities.  This has to be compared to all of the present choices trying to improve the existing 90% road based transport system and the fuel burning economy.
  •  If you can not find a user desirable replacements for not just  part of the use of roads but all uses of roads you will still need to maintain road property access most places.  The guideways allow properties to no longer be defined by road right of ways.  We gain back 25% or more of urban land areas and 5% rural areas by eliminating any future need for roads.  Drainage fast runoff problems are reduced and the materials from road removal can become chanel and dam surfacing and thermal mass construction blocks for buildings.  The PRT guideway components can make whole site integrated automated portable construction crane system for the first time fully automating agriculture and building construction and rehabilitation.
  • Roads, rivers, railroads and canals, are also guideways but often hundreds of times larger in land area consumed, linear materials mass of these earthen supported surface based systems requiring ongoing capital maintenance and replacement costs.  None of any common trips in vehicles are going cross country without a road guideway for usually all or occasionally the ends of mixed mode transfer trips.  Airports and harbors do not require guideway or right of way costs but their facilities costs at connecting points and operational costs over time by comparison can build cross ocean high speed low cost per ton mile guideway tubes.
  • This proposed elevated light weight span guideway using micro geared, tungsten shell, geared  wheel to rail contact surfaces allow lower wear and energy cost than all the other known vehicle choices, including maglev as presently known.  Reducing frontal area drag is most important once you reach fkat contact hard wheel on hard rail rolling friction reduction and zero electrical slip propulsion motor efficiencies.  Evacuated tubes are many times faster than the just suso ic trains described here and will eventually replace this proposal for most then all door to door transportation.  When you can travel a thousand mile trip in twenty minutes instead of two hours at the same or lower cost why would you not want to invest in the future ET3 system?  The reason is immediate access cost and the at least three times cost of the directly connecting infrastructure and problems of handeling over sized loads as the top maintainence rails of the guideways can carry the large spans and even tubes needed for the ET3 system but the ET3 system needs airlocks to oass through internally carried loads.  It is possible to overcome these problems as described further on and build the ET3 bypassing this slower just subsonic system.  First we need a very good form of maglev.
  • Air vehicles require high energy for movement support at about 30 to 40 times this proposed guideway hard tires that have zero propulsion slippage when the motors are operated syncronusly at part loads or cruise speeds even in trains at 650 MPH.  Reducing single high frontal area loading asynchronous running time increases motor efficiency to the mid ninety percentile range.
  • Mass decoupling that is inexpensive might be a practical aero vehicle system if it can ever be environmentally neutrally mass produced.  Then aero vehicles might replace fixed maximum hard running surfaces guideways.  No such system has ever been publicly demonstrated or even described understandably in the physics literature to this time.
  • Proposed here is total desirable tearing up and grassing over of eventually all streets, parking lots, driveways, even rural roads and never looking fondly back wishing you could return to the good old days of road railroad and air vehicle use.  Recreational and historical vehicle use will continue at inconsequential effect on the environment.
  • A global ET3 system will be developing at the same time but at about three times the direct property access cost.
  • To do this requires miniaturizing a single mode all purpose guideway system that moves on a single standard design light weight suspended monorail span.  Suspended monorail is required to allow every vehicle to drop to ground level for anywhere loading and unloading.  The ten strap cable direct gearless hoist drive options are describe in the index menu page.
  • These all new guideways are above us running over the top of and not interfering with all land uses underneath.  Pier spacing to not interfere with property uses can be widely varied infinitely due to the at every joint active expansion and precarch continuous span attachment designs.  At a greater span cost piers can be spaced out with suspended spans several hundred feet between support points.
  • These nearly all oneway PRT network grid elevated spans would from many engineering and logistics studies be able to carry more people, tons or cubic yards of goods or commodities per hour than three lanes of pavement or a one way heavy railway track.  PRT automation means there is no need to group vehicles together for human dispatch and operator cost reduction, only to improve efficiencies at high speeds.  Almost continuous trains are possible, but not safe or practical not eliminating strategically organized open spaces to accommodate entering and leaving vehicles.  Using the geothermal power generators as locations to save up resistance dynamic breaking in the upper thermal well mass would allow almost unlimited fairly efficient regenerative braking without needing batteries. Locally during a overload high traffic emergency stop radiant resistor strips on the guideway can locally dissipate infrared energy or in extreme situation visible spectrums into the air and other surfaces around the spans.  No fear no fires started here.  Similar resistance can be placed on the vehicles bypassing the conductor system but adding cost to the vehicles.  You only need to dissipate the energy off the vehicle stopping rapidly from 650 MPH to do the job.
  • To do this all, we need to increase the vehicle speed and develope high speed in motion constant entering and leaving of trains of PRT vehicles on converging and diverging grids loops, all at very high speed.
  • To make this competitively practical we need to lower the linear costs and volume carried cost of the guideway compared to fully automated electric direct roadway power pick up truck costs on existing always slower more energy per ton mile roadways.   Road fatalities are about 1.3 million people a year more all the time bing poker pedestrians that have to walk in developed countries.  A automated level 5 version of Daryl Osters’s Mopod might be produced for under $2,000 to $5,000 that could be cheaper to give or subsidies for all poor people to use than using busses or rail mass transit systems getting pedestrians off of streets and fuel burning engines out of road vehicles.  The best electric fully autonomous cars and trucks would still be limited to hazardous travel on roads on average at about 10% of the speed of the guideway vehicles that travel in a no interference hazard free zone 20 feet or higher overhead.
  • We need to fully automate the mass production And installation of everything to reduce the new systems cost over using the old road system with new autonomous vehicles that will always be slower but lower in initial vehicle and right of way combined cost.  The charging infrastructure and battery cost is much higher than the direct electric pick up electric cost of the global guideway.  The resistance and chemical conversion losses of a battery powered road vehicle network is much higher than direct pick up on hard tire traction than rubber tires traction with batteries.
  • the guideway fully autonomous or no central control of any kind, PRT vehicles need to provide users with Individually helpful services for all user needs.  Think of all the ways you would want a robot vehicle to serve you and help you to feel good about a new form of more reliable relationship.  Vending machines have no prejudices when you give them your money and they offer you a service.  Vending machine owners can be greedy profit only schemers or just make a get by living businessman in setting prices for products offered.  Proposed here is proportional piecing constantly being adjusted to cover costs and new system access amortization.  The global users should be given the detailed facts and allowed to set rates to reflect continuance and extension of services.  New area users have to separately make choices as to how important it is to them to be intamently connected directly to the rest of the world and set their local debt retirement unit transportation cost figures to produce their democratic ly chosen local values.
  • The solution needs just the right minimalist vehicle cross section and linear load scale to handle nearly all commonly shipped items in the smallest lightest frontal area as well as all personal transportation needs In the same small as practical vehicles.
  • Keeping the lowest practical frontal area or about that of a motor cycle and rider at the lowest possible coefficient of dynamic drag keeps energy levels as low as possible alowing higher speeds while using less energy.
  • With the small vehicles of the right design or form we no longer need any large vehicles to justify operator costs.  Large vehicles require heavy pavements, railway, airport, canal and harbor investments.  These would no longer need to be funded as their operating systems comparatively cost more per ton mile and passenger mile at lower speeds.
  • Personal time and the time of all manufactured goods have counter productive  costs slowing speed or increasing time in movement slows economic growth just as slowing the velocity of money or consumption turn over slows growth in personal and global economies.
  • All personal rapid transit called PRT guideway vehicles need to be self lowering for anywhere access and emergency egress under the suspended monorail beams.  The vehicles can stop and lower their bodies to ground level anyplace under the guideways on the 95% of guideway grid loop or blocked miles that are side street and rural access road equivalents.  Like side streets, these access stop on line guideway sections need to have little traffic so the vehicles can stop on line without holding up following vehicles.  Following low traffic vehicles can slow to wait a user prescribed access time or go around a stopped vehicle On adjacent grid routes.
  • A PRT vehicle can know of operational situations and entering vehicles miles ahead to predict choices the vehicles should make.  Few automated programs do this today only onboard each vehicle.  Presently they relying on central traffic control and despatch systems. Proposed here is zero central management.  This is not block chain but it is cooperative local control only on the cooperating always moving block vehicles using a simple multivinductive conductor path vehicle position and speed location system that was possible 120 years ago  This system communicates with with any nearby user cell phone or internet connected computer as a user dispatch connection with widening ring areas seeking passing empty vehicle capacities of specified types.
  • Every few miles the vehicle would reach a main street or expressway like grid where stopping accept for emergency egress is not allowed.  This increases speed from about 200 MPH on straights on unoccupied access grids to in stages reach 650 MPH running on the in air entrained grids.  About five miles acceleration and deceleration lane distance or off and on ramps from zero to full speed.  Lower speed 200 to 400 MPH grids would serve denser urban areas using much shorter ramp lengths or the ramps can be treated like continuos side access roads on expressways.
  • Elevated stations, airports, commercial harbors and terminals, transit and  freight railroad and bus stops and terminals would no longer be needed anywhere as most warehouse operations would cease to be competitive.  With same day delivery from the far side of Earth taking less than 24 hours and most continental movements taking one to eight hours there is usually no reason to mass local warehouses full of idle products.
  • This proposal is an eliminator of transportation jobs and energy investor wealth.  This is in compensation a massive cost of business and cost of living reduction booster to all other individuals with effective outcome wealth gains in the total output of the global economy over time.
  • We have now experienced global access information and communications where ever we are on our smart phones.  This proposal is how to achieve the same physical not information access response globally, from every place to every place, door to door nonstop direct on average faster than any commercial jet can fly home to home.
  • It will take about four decades to complete the first 30 million guideway miles.  Since this is happening here and there a little at a time each year the costs and economic displacement problems are stretched out.  Fully automated electric truck introduction will happen much faster in the next decade alone because the world wide road systems are already built to run on.  Electric trucks can be cheaper than railroads if they have less damaging load distribution and lower frontal area drag.  ThecTeslactruck is less than one eighth as efficient as other designs can be.  This can be covered latter on in a competing systems web site.
  • For global guideway to work best a whole new kind of running gear and suspended monorail system is proposed As described further on.
  • Every building on the planet or residential door becomes the direct access now serviced by automobiles and trucks for most people and by foot for poorer people.
  •  The proposed guideway PRT taxis that are also all purpose global and local to long distance trucks are designed for the first time to be fully capable of wheel borne electric motor propelled continuous separate vehicle travel at sea level at just over 400 MPH using about 1500 KW of energy, based on many salt flats speedster examples and usually at the lower altitudes operated in.
  • This single vehicle speed is operating with a high wear and energy charge making it several times more expensive than a vehicles proceeding more slowly waiting to be smoothly joined by a passing train of such vehicles operating more efficiently at much higher shared frontal area energy efficiency speeds.  Momentary single vehicle speeds exceed the speed of sound so they will not be run over by a unaware approaching trains that cannot have a collision anyway.
  • These 2,00 to 2,500 pound unladen vehicles about 3.5 feet in exterior diameter and between about 17 to 28 feet over the flat ends will be tubular with the flat ends containg a 3:1 aspect ratio accordion inflated streamlined cones for separate and end operation drag reduction.
  • In operation one guideway vehicle’s full time services replaces about the people and goods movements of 15 each of the average mix of the just over 2.5 billion cars, trucks, railway cars, ocean and channeled ships and barges and commercial and private aircraft In daily use.  At any time on average 95% of the world vehicle fleet is parked waiting for use, in storage, in repair or reserve, being sold or scraped or being loaded.
  • These global guideway vehicles are prposed to be specificly designed for all component and structure pit stop repairs of plug and go replaced externally accessed components.  Not even race cars are usually designed this way other than tire changes.
  • These vehicles get all of their energy directly from a new form of pickup rail located deep inside the guideway so they never have to stop or unlimited range.  A vehicle train could travel a loop putting on 5.6 million miles in a year non stop assuming no breakdown occurred.
  • About three gallons of onboard water and a soap supply cleans out their commodities bladder that is blow dryed while in route to pick up other granular or liquid materials they are rated to carry between passenger and package, containerized items or moving households and compact furniture and automated tool carriers that replace the more expensive use of large farm, construction , mining and materials handeling industrial machinery.
  • The vehicles can travel in trains safely using the first in history proposed wheel motor designs at a little over twice the speed of sound using their collective power.  But they would produce damaging shock waves and a twin loud noise on passing louder than two shot guns going off sequentially near you.  They would be limited to about 650 MPH where the soundofca train or single vehicle on passing at full speed closely overhead would be similar to about a fourth of that of a F-15 passing overhead at the same speed throttle off.  This is more like a loud but short swishing sound.  This comparison is based roughly on frontal area and hollow section reverberation differentials with the low high speed fighter pass example observed at a Thunderbirds air show several decades ago.

This is a shocking proposal to conservative people who will immediately suspect that building 40,000,000 miles of brand new guideways will cost hundreds of trillions of dollars.  About $60 trillion would likely buy the whole global system and the first 300 million all purpose vehicles that replace the whole of the world’s existing transportation fleets and building four times more base load ultra deep geothermal electric power capacity using only the fully automated guideway for construction.

Incrementally the guideways might pay for themselves amortizing out to a service cost lowering from about half of auto and truck use segmentally calculated global cost to less than a tenth the comparative user cost over time as first systems debt retirement is rolled over to build subsequent installations in proceeding decades.  The user cost becomes steadily less only if the guideways are self owned in the interest of all the user demanded benefits.  This is portrayed as a global user direct democracy trust with a non secret user voting record as a cross check giving each user a paper record for validation when required.

The possible costs over the first decade will likely be ever less, based on probable improvement that can be roughly projected.  The first half a decade of mass production will likely find defects that might raise costs over projections.  As these can not be forseen projections have to be based on similar machinery and structure costs in fully automated mass production with adjustments for scale and materials differences.

This lowers electric rates and personal mobility and directly delivered product costs over using the existing global distribution systems as a bonus to guideway direct access to guideway connected users as an inducement to support conversion.


People commonly get into automobiles directly sitting down into their seats through small doors.  Automobiles have no stand up access isles or onboard bathrooms.  Yet people take daily short to and long cross country multi day trips without feeling at a loss for service.  Just as in using automobiles the global guideway vehicles are at the instant change of occupants mind in route or stop control of their single choice occupants only vehicles.  This means if you get hungry or have to use the restroom you can come to a stopping place in about one minute from just below the speed of sound.  Restrooms and open restaurants are usually farther apart by time in slow road vehicles.  It takes less time to get to where the rider or user demands using the global guideway.  This is actually about half to a third the real time door to door trip speed of averaged multi mode and wait airline flights and air freight special delivery near by to globally.  The longer the single leg trip the less the differential.  Automaticly extending reclining seats can reach outside the vehicle to let the user sit down from a standing position under the weather protection of the gull wing whole side door, then the seat elevates and semi reclines the user into the minimal vehicle cross section with ample head, arm and shoulder room.  More clearance than is on most first class airliners.


The guideways will set the harizon level almost everywhere on views above average lower building tops but not above most trees.  Proposed is planting vines that grow up around piers and onto spans in temperate to tropic zones and colomer and other evergreens arround the poles.  The spans can be painted in varigated background colors and patterns color coded to mostly be visually unobtrusive from ground levels Based on sight level video analyses keyed to the back grounds they are in front of.  Reflective coatings that take on the seasonal colors of their surroundings are possible.  Look at it this way the guideways are less visually aborant than the streets parking lots and highways full of colorful cars and trucks with occasional billboard advertising on their sides and all the power poles 

, traffic lights, street signs and street lights the global guideway totally replaces with lawns, fields and trees.  No more surface slabs other than a network of uninterrupted bike paths everywhere a totally safe walkable world.  Even nearly all use of advertizing signs goes away with the advent of guideway use replacing auto use.  People locate places they want to patronize on their phones and the guideway interior screens that present stable pictures unlike the soundings flashing by at hundreds of miles per hour.  Why spend money on a sign when almost nobody will see it?


My wife always wanted to slow down so she could enjoy scenery.  Prior guideway vehicles could be taking locally recorded images of the scenery passed through, then retransmitted on request to be projected on the interior screens at a slower speed.  The guideway video cameras pick up real time passing scenery projecting these scenes or any chosen scene on interior screens that replace windows.  The cameras are on average located 25 to 30 feet above the ground slow down a little bit the blinding speed sense of motion.  Windows are no longer a viable option as they increase the weight, purchase cost and operating costs of advanced vehicles.  Even the Musk Space X BFR is improperly presented with windows.

The industrial world is miniaturizing or shrinking in it’s foot print and need for human labor.  I am writing this sitting in the center of over a hundred square miles of abandoned to little used industries on the south side of Chicago through Hammond Indianna down to Gary.  As I drive through these areas even the huge buildings that rose everywhere and their former always connecting rail yards are shrinking replaced by highways that are unsustainable.

Lowering all mobility cost with higher speed


Proposed is hard surface wheel running gear that increases regular speed to usually 650 MPH on all nearly straight  guideway through entrained PRT traffic sections or about 10 times faster than average road vehicle speed between and through cities.  This is about15% faster than most very large frontal area commercial jets fly at.  If the aero drag and frontal areas for long slender trains is low enough the they use less energy at ten times the speed than mostly unstreamlined large vehicle systems do.  Going faster means fewer vehicle volume and weight copacity or procurement cost is needed.


By reducing bearing and wheel wear using flat no differential diameter or rubber tread contact as in flanged railway wheels and road vehicle tires and variably magneticly unloaded bearings the high speed wheels need not wear any faster than slow wheels.  Traction is by slip free fine gear tooth rim or tread minor diameter barrel contact.  This eliminates traction slippage.


Mostly inside urban street area trips at slower speeds of Usually between 100 MPH to 200 MPH even on stop on line for access guideway sections.


This all means fewer fully automated self lowering access vehicles are needed.  The empty often mixed capacity race car fast vehicles arrive at a service call in less time.


The guideway grids being light weight at about 100 to 200 pounds per linear foot become cheaper to build and operate vehicles over than road vehicle systems.  Roads are designed for spread out loads of 1,200 pounds a linear foot but axle contact loads at about fifty times that of the proposed guideway wheels.  Rail vehicles are designed for around 4,000 to 5000 pounds per linear foot loads with running gear axle loads of up to about 70,000 pounds or about1,200 times the more linearly numerous chains of guideway wheels.


Cost is less because energy and debt retirement shares are less and the speed is higher.  This is only possible with minimally small and linearly lightest weight vehicles.  This is only possible by designing every vehicle with mostly two semi recumbent knees up passenger seats plus room enough inside each vehicle for over 99% of all larger items used by people.  Knees up seats reduce the acceleration and deceleration stresses on weaker passengers.


Couches and refrigerators, drywall and plywood but not ridged larger mattress would fit.  A commodities bag on every vehicle can carry one to three tons of grains, ores or flour, water or syrups, no fuels are ever again needed and fewer volatile plastic feed stocks are used as  bulk materials.  These are entered and discharged through a common top and bottom opening in large fabric envelopes collapsed against the side wall opposite the whole side gull wing door.  A wash out system allows every vehicle to do almost everything so few mostly parked specialty vehicles are necessary.


Every vehicle would be able to participate full time in world wide commerce carrying people during rush hours, then going inter city or to other continents through floating ocean tubes during the 90% of the times of the lower human movement demand.  Vehicles with internal delivery manipulators pick up and deliver mail and packages even full self mobile electric goods containers.  These new containers replace pallets and lift trucks in most warehouse and stock rooms.  Pallet box like self mobile containers migh collapse for empty lower volume return stacking.  Many all new designs are proposed.  This new system creates new service possibilities.


The running gear proposed is the only slip free propulsion and movement high speed support system ever described, meaning low wear and lower rolling friction.  Low air resistance in mandatory along with two to hundreds of vehicles sharing their frontal areas in trains.  Air friction and wake drag in boats is 80% of the fuel we burn today in transporting ourselves and goods.  Once we solve this problem lowered friction can be turned into greater speed.  Lowering rolling friction and wear becomes the default next big problem.


Proposed is rolling element bearings that are maglev unloaded to reduce friction farther and increase wear life.  Seals lift from their wavy or acentric seats after about 15 MPH as the lubrication is held in and dust rejected centripitally as speed increases.

Become a researching company or individual

Guideway acceptance requires a best standard.

To permanatly sustain advanced economies more efficient transportation powered by very deep bore anywhere geothermal electricity needs to replace the multimodal road way predominate and fuel burning economies. 


This system needs to eliminate any need for batteries as in autonomus road vehicles.


Hwavy slow ships replaced by fast under 2 foot draft mile long under 200 square foot frontal area SES sea trains replace most over ocean aircraft flights and speed up global commerce until the direct guideway or PRT guideway ocean tubes are built to make Kant and water transportation single mode trip seamless.  Sail and solar sea trains can operate st 20 to 200 MPH speeds.  Thorium reactor powered sea train can operate at 200 to 400 MPH speeds based on existing fan electric propulsion using combined figures from GE90 engines using electric rim drive out runner motors and submarine power plant examples with thorium breeder shells and hot cores.  On board recrossing remains an uncertainty.


This all requires direct local geothermal electricity connected global transportation.  A universal service fully automated entrainable PRT guideway and electricity utility is to users a everywhere transportation and energy vending machine.


You could use your bank cards in any vehicle like a full service ATM guideway bank to get what ever you needed that your account allowed you to pay for or use the internet to communicate with the guideway treating it like a fully automated local to global transportation vending machine.  Not having any humans to profit the guideway bank can operate at a smaller overhead cost and eventually become the global monetary system because it has a high asset and utility value to everybody and it’s customers are all collectively it’s board of directors and advisors.


  While manufacturers would contribute to make and improve on the products needed by people the cost per unit of seat mile ton mile or delivery action would drop to about 5% to 15% of the current mixed mode system costs that relies on external financial management.  This is the difference between having to maintain ground supported transportation that requires a high human labor, management and constantly deteriorating brittle high mass infrastructure overhead cost and the ultra light jet speed guideway.


This guideway is ultra light weight in total systems mass.  It depends on transportation and energy being a fully automatically managed and self placed universal utility serving all user benefits goals that is user immediately on demand controlled.


This should be a global self owned or user trust that is user local to global direct democracy controlled universal public utility.  Govornments and private operating corporations are all potentially corrupt able so can not get involved in operations lest they again warp the services to create avenues for profit and power infighting.


The users know what they want and should have all oversight in decision making.  If the users ask what seems like impossible demands, more than the impossible already being delivered, the next ET3 stage is already being developed and should be developed as a parallel inter city and inter continental system for 2,000 to 60,000 MPH higher speeds.  The faster ET3 speeds would be for interplanetary and orbital transfer space launch and recovery ring systems.


Proposed is mediating soft ware to allow property owners to get the type of service that suits them and their neighbors, to cooperatively as mush as possible at any given time make the mutually best decisions.  The problem is working out differences in alignment opinions and preferences of access style.


The guideways are portable, being easily installed using stake driven piers and pulled up and moved as needed.  The span parts and assemblies can be reused and shape adapt for the first time in history similar to railway rails to what ever alignment is required.  Only this control is three dimensional including the world’s first structural limit automatic expansion and span arch control.


Internet communications might shortly follow this PRT model because the guideway is a cheaper way to deliver high capacity guideway carried instead of buried fiber optics and more frequent finely divided cell tower sites on occasional piers everywhere.  Dark fiber would follow the guideways as well as power plant electric capacity levels carried by the grid span structures being connectable any where the guideways arrive at.  Farmers could use electricity for field work.


The guideways become a cheap way to move millions of tons of water to any place on the 40 million eventual mikes of the global grid.


 For profit companies will as they always have figuring out ways to make profits off of essentially nonprofit utility services.  Investors take advantage of a higher velocity of money in a permanatly sustainable marketplace and ecology that is more robust than the current global economy that will shortly reach transactional supply cost peaks or ecological limits until we eliminate the fuel and user owned vehicle and equipment market place.  Everything hinges on a permanatly sustainable ecology and critical materials supplies in which the human economy has to presently exist.  This ecology predominated before humans arrived and is unlikely to be replaced by us for thousands of years to come with a global sustainable substitute theme park like ecology of our design.


First year vehicles can debt retire in about one year at 2 to 3 cents a user mile, the guideway access grid debt retires at about 5 to 15 cents a user mile, the bore anywhere power plants and additional 3 cents or more to debt retire in about three to five years.  Maintenance and energy on going electricity and wear and replacement costs might be between about 2 cents to 7 cents a vehicle mile occasionally being both cheaper and higher in certain user circumstances and short trip higher cost charges.


After about the third to fifth years this possible capital costs are incrementally paid off buy the user charges and those debts would progressively lower to a fairly flat user cost at about 1/20th to

 1/60th the average cost of current transportation.


First developmental companies will require more insight than they showed on the Hyperloop projects that push aside rational detractors working towards irrational conformist formatting.


 Proposed here is a new example that may transcend all the problems with past wheel born systems being lower in rolling resistance at speeds as high as jet aircraft with frontal area drag coeficients lower than recumbant streamlined bicycles at only about double their common frontal areas.  Proposed is a new form of I beam shaped running gear wheel motor chains with variable permanatly magnet unloaded needle bearings.  Micro gear narrow width dual gear rim wheel support eliminates slippage wear in exchange for a microscopic vibratory rolling movement.  Traction limits no longer exist so emergency regenerative stoops of up to 3 to 4 Gs become practical when required and climbing almost verticle slopes if needed is practical.  Longer distance entrainment of separately routed PRT vehicles join in drag reduction trains of opportunity at sea level.  The single vehicle share of trained drag drops to where faster than commercial jet speeds become practical.


The guideways on which the vehicles run are alignment adjustable in a new way to provide smooth rides at very high speeds yet be cheap enough to directly be placed by or connect together nearly every home and business and popularly road accessed site on the planet.  If a place can be reached by a mechadamized road sewers and power lines Then a all new guideway is lower in cost to build that also provides cheaper electric energy access than natural gas or the lowest cost PV system.


Most primitive villages getting a guideway spur would not only get cell service, unlimited water, power and a on demand delivery of everything they could pay for as well as remote recycle removal of all wastes and the whole globe to directly sell their products in with same day delivery to the far side of the planet but the equivalent to a village center international airport and container ship port combined with a grade separated local highway network.  This access might cost as little as $300,000 to $2,000,000 a mile depending on one way or two way single vehicle or train occupancy per span between piers. Commerce could come to all people never before participating in the global economy.  Left is the problem of maintaining a desirable universal good tasting high protein diet without trashing the oceans ecolological sustainability.  This to might be solved by the global guideway’s connection to lower cost ocean agriculture systems that require lower input mobility costs and sea food farms instead of desamating base ocean food chain feed stocks.  Fully automated massive guideway factory based insect farms can produce the improved animal feed protien.  New forms of middle ocean depth base netted farms along the guideway ocean network paths are proposed in verticle descending ecology layers of concentrated production.  We can no longer simply extract without cuircularly replacing consumed resources.  This requires very flexible low cost return mobility that does not itself create pollution and flood run off problemscreated by large area pavements and road and railroad embankment restriction of natural drainage.


The guideways raise coastal citie’s transportation to where elevated or floating buildings no longer need surface transportation or low level airports.


Sea levels will continue to rise anyway to levels where guideway rebuilding of higher inland cities becomes unavoidable.   The guideways can cross oceans in small two way reverse cuirculation reduced pressure ocean tubes.  These Davis tube networks are cheapest with small frontal area PRT vehicles like the original Skytran designs.  Ocean automated fabrication and installation does not require the massive systems used today for suspended roadway tubes.  Over water costs are about $10,000,000 a mile in average three mile depts at 100 foot to 200 foot under surface floating suspension depths using a new anchorage placement and position adjustment system.


All of these issues require producing companies that are not afraid to operate where no one has gone before, using new production machinery they will probably have to develop themselves.  The creative talents are there but suppressed by the lack of applied physics guided leadership.


single mode transportation, geothermal energy

Interested in a permant future for humans? It takes a car and a cell phone to raise a kid, hold jobs, shop, and do everything else in ever larger area dispersed services communities. This is true every where in the world. A global single mode to everywhere guideway can provide a private personal automated high speed taxi and delivery van to give individual family members, of any age or abilities, separate autonomy to inexpensively daily travel hundreds of miles in radius at a tenth to twentieth the per mile cost of auto or transit use in commuting, getting cheaper housing, medical care, shopping, jobs and education access. Public transportation nearly always takes longer than personal auto use while covering a hundredth the land areas. Mass transit limited network rail and bus wastes people’s time limiting their range of places they can access and daily activities. Mass transit is always inferior transportation for most users to personal autos global PRT is superior to road use c
