Airbus future bus for india.

The idea of a traffic straddling bus has been around for a long time. The BosWash Landliner was proposed in the New York Magazine in Feb 1969. It was designed to travel over 200mph on air-bearing rails across the BosWash area.

Officially the bus is called the TEB (tee-ee-bee), short for’Transit Elevated Bus’.
However, in Chinese, the bus is 巴铁 (Bā Tiě), which can translate as “Iron Bar” (or less excitingly “Rail Bus”)

How Does It Work?
The TEB uses a system of hub-mounted motors for propulsion. In Engineering terms this makes a lot of sense as it allows the drive train to be highly modular; allowing for easy to swap and service components, layers of redundancy and eliminating the need to an independent steering mechanism.

Wheel motors can be individually sped up or slowed down to allow for the same type of skid steering used on tanks or rovers. The system would similar to how Mars’s Curiosity moves, as it uses a smaller scale system of wheel hub motors.

TEB looks to have utilised an unusual braking system because of it wheel hub motor drive. As the inside of the wheels are already filled with an electric motor a traditional brake system would not work. TEBs solution is to connect a standard disc brake assembly via a belt to the wheels vertically. Additional wheels with brakes can also be deployed as an emergency brake.

No date has yet been set for a completed TEB system. While Qinhuangdao is currently hosting the prototype, 115 miles of track was set for construction in the Mentougou District of Beijing for late 2010, and both Shijiazhuang, in Hebei Province, and Wuhu, in Anhui Province, are applying for financing for the system.
