»Sunglider Smart Uberground Metro« is an autonomous, PV fuelled public transport system for medium-sized urban areas. It consists of autonomous people & cargo movers (+1 level) and small autonomous busses on the ground. The track is totally glulam constructed and carries a PV roof generating 117% of the energy required for the entire system. The Metro is controlled by AI, creating a wait-free cycle of 3 minutes day & night. All vehicles are 3 D printed in micro-factories. Investment and operation costs are drastically cut back allowing free of charge ride without deficit in the balance.
