World Fastest Train Maglev Technology

Artificial Intelligence Gives Train Cargo 20kW of Energy Transmission

The world's fastest locomotive will be able to reach almost 70% faster speeds thanks to cutting-edge technology developed by Siemens. Known as Maglev37, the powerful London train line will cut emissions by up to 80%, and cut congestion by up to 60%. Launching in 2018, the train will record rail speeds over 284 mph! This speed is 66 mph greater than that of the UK record-holder and eclipses the current record of 200 mph. This record-breaking record will increase the possibility of a maglev route crossing the English Channel into the United Kingdom.

Maglev Rail lines have been developed in Europe over the last few years with the Maglev Rail Technology Alliance (MITS) combining projects in Europe, America, and Japan to take Maglev Rail technology to higher speeds. Mitsubishi Heavy Industries will become the first outside consultant to design and engineer Maglev Rail technologies, with Tunheim Partners as the engineering firm to complete the development of the maglev train line.

What will happen when the technology has been tested for speed? In the lab's "trick testing," the train will vary the acceleration of its wheels to mimic the capacity of the maglev train's train room (the train is even capable of stopping anywhere within its current speed limit). The trains will also be subject to heightened temperatures and pressures, with two steel tracks housed within a concrete superstructure, known as a track installation. As the carbon footprint of the travel increases, the carbon savings will contribute to the airline industry's emissions reduction goals. Additional achievements will depend on the involvement of Sandakudo Limited and Siemens Rail Development.

"This research will not only reduce the overall carbon footprint of travel, but will also make use of the competitive advantage of the Maglev railroad technology that presently makes use of great amounts of energy, yet which can reach substantial speeds of up to 370 mph," said Professor Julia Rau, from the University of Montpellier. Rau is the project lead of the ANSYS Product & Laboratory Centre of Excellence for Rail Research (SCRE) in France. This research team will look at achieving a speed of 407 mph, as well as "reconfiguring trains and constructing substations, via the use of nanostructures and pressure vessels, developed in the Institute of Advanced Flow Science, INSICQ‑4", on a piece of land nearby to conduct the test and validate the technologies.

The electric MAGlev locomotive will follow the tracks from London to Great Barrington in Wisconsin where the train will enter the States and end up in Washington DC. It will be an important act of global collaboration—and signals of the acceptance of maglev technology by world scientists!

About Avanti Rail

We believe in a world beyond road and rail, one where rail is king. In 2015, we are proud to announce Avanti Rail, a wholly-owned subsidiary of Sandakudo, and a new company responsible for all maglev rail projects. One of our ambitions is to design the world's fastest train line, with operation starting in France in 2018. Avanti Rail owns the entire line in France. Our full-service approach and solutions are practical, sustainable, and crucial for the future of our digital future. Our life-long commitment is to safe travel at unprecedented speeds, one major step at a time. We are a compact team that shares our passions, creativity, and optimism for our global cities.
