THE URBAN TRACKED LEVITATED VEHICLE

Presented is a brief summary of one of the newest concepts in transportation--the Urban Tracked Levitated Vehicle. Air levitated, magnetically guided, propelled by single-sided LIMs, it is a really new idea in mobility. It holds a practical hope of filling the transportation gap between the 60 mph of autos and the 500 mph plus of aircraft.
