Bus exchange system
In traditional exchange system, the parked time is determined by the number of passengers. In the peak time, the number of exchanging passengers will be increased and it may extend the parked time. Many buses and the confused crowd will form traffic congestion, and it will has a bad influence on the efficiency of entire urban transportation.
UNIQUE PROPERTIES / PROJECT DESCRIPTION:
ORRO is a new way of bus exchange. Vehicles and platform have the same hemicycle structure respectively. Passengers will of inside and outside can change to the space station in advance. Vehicle and the station of semicircle space will form a cylinder and rotate 180 ° after the vehicles to the specified location. With the exchange of passengers of inside and outside will complete the exchange. ORRO makes actual vehicle parked time within 15 s which reduce regional congestion by the bus.
OPERATION / FLOW / INTERACTION:
1. Before the vehicles pulling in, passengers inside or outside will enter the waiting area waiting for the bus respectively.
2.When the bus stop. Passengers can exchange with the space vehicles.
3.When the bus leave and the exchange taking process finished. Passengers of inside and outside ,thy can prepare for next exchange.
PROJECT DURATION AND LOCATION:
The concept was designed in November 2016 and is still under development
FITS BEST INTO CATEGORY:
Vehicle, Mobility and Transportation Design
PRODUCTION / REALIZATION TECHNOLOGY:
Between the station and the bus terminal and scheduling transmission information necessary to each other. Including the location of the vehicle, speed, as the number of transfer number and waiting for the information. Near the bus arrived at the station, the bus on the platform of signal to guide the dock to the accurate position.
SPECIFICATIONS / TECHNICAL PROPERTIES:
semicircle space diameter: 3m
Each car has 2 semicircle space
each bus station has 4 semicircle space
bus, exchange system, concept
In ordinary bus after joining orro system can lead to smaller practical space inside the car. The number of transfer space and size set will be crucial. How the bus under the condition of limited size, ensure transfer sufficient space and avoid waste of space, maximize the efficiency of vehicles carry.
