Research and Development

Our Research and Development has led to significant technological breakthroughs for Intercity Transportation Systems. The fundamentals of engineering which were developed cover a very wide area relating to the design of vehicles, tracks, stations and networks.

  • Comfort of Passengers in the Vehicle
  • Safety of Passengers in the Cabin Atmosphere
  • Levitation, Guidance and Propulsion Systems
  • Structural Design of Vehicles
  • Principles and Parameters of Track Design
  • Vacuum, Pressurization and Emergency Systems

Subjects relating to high speed transportation in general were also examined.

  • Global Transportation Demand until the Year 2300
  • Sustainability of Systems for high speed transportation
  • Transportation Capacity in Relation to Demand
  • Environmental Compatibility
  • Economic Feasibility
