TEDx Atlanta

Red Bull TV, JPods starts at 9:30 (2015). This covers three major areas of change:

  1. Self-driving cars for last mile.
  2. JPods for urban networks.
  3. Hyperloops for connecting urban networks.




Source: Congressional Study PB-244854, "Automated Guideway Transit", 1975.

Finding: "institutional failures" within US DOT resuted in urgban transportation innovation being blocked for "four to six decades" in urban mobility except for "relatively minor cosmetic changes". See page 41.

Recommendation: Allow Rights of Way access so networks such as Morgantown's PRT can be built in US cities to solve traffic problems and the hardships of the 1973 Oil Embargo.

Tricia Nixon opened the first self-driving car network on Oct 24, 1972. She said it was “more fun than Disneyland.” The Federal highway monopoly has blocked further deployments of PRT in America since. That same highway policy caused the bankruptcy/abandonment of nearly half the freight railroads despite 400+ ton-miles per gallon efficiencies.


Praetor Capital 2021 estimate of PRT capital value of $31-58 billion.
