The first autonomous trains in China has accelerated to 350 km/h (video)

The Chinese authorities put on a high-speed travel around more and more dynamically developing country. The realization of this vision will help build one thousand kilometers of new lines, new trains and autonomous technologies.The Middle Kingdom again surprised the whole world. A few days ago there was the official opening of the fastest on the planet railway line trains operated only by fully autonomous. Until now, China could travel warehouses unattended by people with a speed of 200 km / h. Now the speed increased up to 350 km / h.The new line was established between Beijing and Zhangjiakou.

Now it will be only 47 minutes, and you have to emphasize here that the train will stop at 10 stations. Score is therefore all the more impressive. China is famous in the world of high-speed railways. For years there autonomous functioning subway and rail based on the Maglev technology, which uses magnetic levitation phenomenon. Interestingly, as early as next year to be completed even faster Maglev trains, which will be able to travel at speeds exceeding 600 km / h. Elon Musk has recently announced that the Chinese authorities will help in the construction of the first railway sections Hyperloop. We can expect that the first rail network of the future that offers traveling at a speed of up to 1200 km / h, will be there in the second half of this decade.
