Abu Dhabi skyTran Pods Will Fly Visitors on Yas Island
Abu Dhabi, skyTran Pods Will Fly Visitors on Yas Island :Asset management and development services company Miral signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with skyTran Inc. on 29 June 2016 to launch the study and implementation of the skyTran, a Personal Rapid Transit (PRT) system, on Abu Dhabiâs Yas Island.
skyTran is a NASA Space Act Company, headquartered at the NASA Research Park near Mountain View, California.
skyTranâs computer-controlled, two-passenger vehicles employ unique Magnetic Levitation technology instead of wheels. The high-speed PRT system will allow on-demand passenger âpodsâ to travel directly from one destination to another in a safe, timely, and energy efficient manner.
The open source design technology is based on a white paper published by inventor and Tesla CEO Elon Musk.
Yas Island destinations may eventually be connected to Abu Dhabi International Airport.
Miral CEO Mohamed Abdulla Al Zaabi commented: âInnovation remains at the heart of what we do on Yas Island. While we continue to build world-class destinations and expand Yas Island, it is imperative that we are able to implement an urban transportation solution which is not only energy efficient but also adds another level of excitement to our visitorsâ experiences. With skyTran, we have a partner who not only shares our vision for innovation in Abu Dhabi, but are developing a service which will transform the Yas Island experience, and grow our appeal to the millions of residents and tourists who visit us from the UAE and across the world.â
skyTran CEO Jerry Sanders stated: âskyTran truly is a smart transportation solution for smart cities and we are proud to be able to bring this path-breaking technology to the Middle East for the first time. With our access to NASAâs cutting-edge technology and expertise, we are able to introduce a solution on Yas Island which paves the way for Abu Dhabi to define the Middle Eastâs innovative mode of transport for the future.â
Yas Island currently attracts over 25 million visitors every year to attractions which include Ferrari World Abu Dhabi, Yas Waterworld, and the Yas Marina Formula 1 circuit. With the opening of the Warner Bros. theme park in 2018 the number of visitors to Yas Island from around the world is expected to grow to over 30 million.
