Delhi considers futuristic driverless pod cars

Sheila Dikshit s Biography

I recently discovered a lovely article posted earlier today, by Urban Choreography, and entitled Delhi considers futuristic driverless pod cars that I encourage all of you to read. Here’s a few extracts to pique your interest!

 As some cities appear ready to embrace the future of “Minority Report” I wonder how increased personal mobility undermines the function of the interaction of diverse people at the street level and ushers them more and more into the impersonal world of computers….? If cities are truly mechanisms for encouraging chance encounters – then more you are ‘delivered to your destination’ the more cut off you are from what is really important in life and why cities are exiting places to live – human interactions and relationships? From smartplanet By Tyler Falk  India’s capital, Delhi, is considering a sleek new form of public transportation: pod cars. The chief minister Sheila Dikshit of India’s second largest metro region called on the city’s transportation department to do a detailed report on the personal rapid transit system, the Times of India reports. Speaking about the system, Dikshit said, “We are willing to consider a new modern, convenient, pollution-free and affordable City Pod Car System to supplement the existing modes of public transport in the capital.” The pod cars transport individuals or small groups, usually no more than 6 in a car, on an elevated track in battery-powered driverless vehicles. See how it works for yourself: In Delhi, the system would act as a supplement to other forms of public transportation and could be an alternative to personal vehicles, Dikshit said.

 [...]

Even so, the government will need to decide if this sort of transit is practical on a large scale. The pod car system is already running at Heathrow airport in London, but The City Fix explains why cities shouldn’t rush to pod cars as a transit fix. Cities need permanent solutions to mobility problems, but it’s important to keep in mind that demographics change, as do commuter patterns. Permanent infrastructure that serves a niche group will only prove to be a nuisance to the city.

Reading this started me off thinking so I did a quick search for some other posts on the subject and uncovered some more gems. For example, We will come out clean: Delhi CM Sheila Dikshit | PRAVASI TODAY … by pravasitoday, posted two days ago, over on PRAVASI TODAY : NRI NEWS : NRI HELP:

A day after facing the opposition’s stinging attack on her government’s involvement in the “bungling” of the Commonwealth Games (CWG), Delhi Chief Minister Sheila Dikshit Tuesday attacked the BJP for “jumping the gun” and said “we will come out clean”. “How can you lap up whatever the opposition says or alleges. Why does it (BJP) not say anything against (former Gujarat minister) Amit Shah and (Karnataka Chief Minister) B.S. Yeddyurappa who are indulged in corruption. Let the enquiry take its own course and we will come out clean,” Dikshit told IANS on the sidelines of a Women’s Car Rally. Following the arrest of former CWG chief Suresh Kalmadi for alleged irregularities in the granting of contracts for works related to the October 2010 sporting event, the Bharatiya Janta Party (BJP) Monday said that Kalmadi’s arrest is just “the tip of the iceberg” and stringent action must be taken against Delhi government which is also involved in the bungling of the Games. BJP leader Vijay Goel had said that Dikshit should resign immediately on moral ground.

Finally, another fantastic post on the subject came from IBNS over on World Snap posted back in March, entitled Mohali: No tickets for Sheila Dikshit | Delhi, World Snap News which is also definitely worth reading!

Sheila Dikshit will not be able to see the exciting encounter live on ground as her name was not present in the long list of 11,000 important guests for whom special seats have been reserved for the day, media reports said. Speaking to a daily Sheila Dikshit said that she would have loved to see the game if she would have received a ticket. “I couldn’t get a ticket for myself. If I could have managed a ticket, then definitely I would have gone there,” Dikshit said to Mid-Day newspaper. India and Pakistan will meet each other in the much-talked about encounter on Wednesday at Mohali. A large number of important personalities are expected to visit the stadium on Mar 30 to witness the game. Prime Minister Manmohan Singh and his Pakistani counterpart Yousuf Raza Gilani will visit Mohali for the all important match of the World Cup 2011.
