In Harbin, the capital of Heilongjiang, the most northern province of China, where the temperature drops to -20, an electric train with virtual rails is being tested. Electric train with a length of more than 30 meters and a capacity of about 300 passengers.
The vehicle is something between a train and a bus, but the developers call it a “train”. Equipped with rubber tires, the electric train is able to move along any route. Thanks to the built-in sensors, the route is automatically laid and the dimensions and quality of the roads are determined. At a maximum speed of 70 km / h, after a 10-minute charge, the train can travel about 25 kilometers.
