Pater-Damian Sekundarschule, Eupen België
A lot of truck traffic is needed to transport relatively small packages across the country. What are the possibilities to get less trucks on the road.
Create a tube system between large distribution and citycenters. (A large-scale tube mail system of old). With magnets, the transport module should hang suspended in the tube so that it has no resistance. The tube system is airless so there is no resistance here either. With magnetism, the transport module can travel very large distances at high speed.
Using magnets to float a transport module in a tube. Explanation of a nationwide distribution system.
