Tomorrow's Trains

Tomorrow's Trains

Deutsche Welle (Dec. 9, 2012) — Researchers from nine different German Aerospace Center Institutes are working together to come up with the train of the future. The vehicle that they're planning will be able to travel at 400 kilometers per hour. It will also be safer and more environmentally friendly than current locomotives. The so-called Next Generation Train will be a doubledecker, without any staircases inside. First-class passengers will get into the first floor, and second-class passengers will board at ground floor level. Sensors will be used to couple the sections of the trains. In the event of a crash, the nose of the train will crumple and absorb the energy of the collision. The damaged element can then be easily replaced. Tomorrow's trains will be able to do all this and a lot more.
