Video: China straddling bus is a reality — #IoT, #Transportation

A prototype of the Chinese straddling bus has become a reality what was just a proof of concept in Qinhuangdao, Hebe, China earlier this month in August 2016.  The straddling bus is a hybrid of a commuter ferry and bus that straddles above existing roads for transportation while passengers sit in the above compartment.

The elevated bus stretches 22 meters and close to 8 meters in width began trials this month in Qinhuangdao, Hebei province with a maximum speed of 60km/hr.   Its most technical challenge is overcoming a turning radius which requires about 45 to 50 meters.
