The Solar Karizmatic Vehicle(Aid Controlling Pollution and Traffic) is a proposed new bus concept where a guided bus straddles above road traffic and it also help in controlling pollution.It could very well be the future of public transport. It’s only a concept for the moment but a working mini model was recently presented at the IIMT IET R&DLab.The bus will be able to carry up to 1200 passengers and will take them to work and back by literally driving over the traffic. It’s a brilliant idea that could potentially eliminate congestion and reduce pollution in the world’s most populous country.It may look like something for the future,One Solar Karizmatic Vehiclecould replace 24 conventional buses.Look no further, the future has arrived.
