Revolution in public transport

Today's public transport is hopelessly outdated. It has lost touch. It has become unattractive. It is economically ruinous and cannot afford what the citizens would need to leave their cars at home: real zero tariffs. So something new is urgently needed to happen. Electric cars are not the solution.

Revolutionary metros in technology and concept are needed for medium-sized cities and their surrounding areas. No tram (too old-fashioned), no underground (too expensive). We need to rediscover and to reinvent the good old suspension railway on level +1. Let’s think "Uberground".


In addition to the +1 lines, the Sunglider metro also supplies ground traffic on the »last mile«. Small autonomous KATOS buses will be waiting at each stop to take passengers to their destinations free of charge. Or they can be picked up by KATOS. One push if a button in the Sunglider app is all it takes to make a KATOS come around.

However, if you prefer to ride a bike, the Sunglider Metro offers smart e-bikes, which will also be waiting at every stop. You can also use your own bike - and take it with you. But you don't have to do that, because at every destination there is a well-maintained and charged e-bike waiting for environmentally conscious bike owners. The e-bikes can be booked via the Sunglider app. The Sunglider is the true ally of eco-friendly passengers.


A good metro is not long in coming. The next train has to arrive within 5 minutes. This is a big challenge for the controlling of the Metro which can only be solved by powerful »artificial intelligence« (AI). The Sunglider metro uses an innovative AI tool based on IBM Watson. That is the virtual controller, the "conductor" software of the metro. The »Sunglider Conductor« software ensures that gliders and buses are always optimally timed. They will always be "just in time". Nobody will have to wait longer than 5 minutes - not even at night.

On the other hand: If there is no need, gliders and buses will not run. The AI learns when exactly to deliver and when not. During idle times, the »Sunglider Conductor« creates space for Sunglider-Cargo traffic. In addition, the AI controls the stops and takes care of the automatic maintenance of the Xylo-Solar Route by using small repair robots.
