An infographic showing our vision of the system. Mainly, this should explain the following points:
- Wherever you are, you can get on your app and order a trip. You will be picked up by a self-driving car which brings you to the tube station.
- Inside the tube, you travel in a capsule at 1200 km/h, and like a metro between cities it brings you to your city of choice without having to stop at intermediate station (but there are intermediate stations, which you could've arrived at if you would've entered that specific vehicle). (optional extra technical description: the vehicle floats centimeters high on a magnetic field, which means a very smooth ride and no wear and maintenance for the track. Due to the vacuum, the aerodynamic resistance is so low, that you only need powerful motors at the start to get the vehicle up to speed, and at the end to regenerate the energy you put into it. Because of the low energy consumption and the simple construction of the tube, costs can be very low)
- At the other station, another self-driving car is waiting for you to pick you up and bring you to your final destination.
Hence the infographic should show this process, explain some of the steps using my description above. Core values are speed, flexibility, and low cost. What can probably also be added to the inforgaphic is just a simple comparison with speed to other modes of transportation. We're thinking of a simple horizontal bar graph with the top bar being the longest, with a flash on the right side (our vehicle), and then shorter graphs below that for a plane, a train, a car. Maybe the Eiffeltower on the left of the bars and a windmill on the right of the bars to visually give the concept of "Paris to Amsterdam"
Now the tricky part: We'd like to use it on our website on Thursday, so we have 2 days.
