CEO of uSky Transport Sergei Tarasov attended the event "Establishing the New Impossible", hosted by Bekaert.
Bekaert’s ambition is to be the leading partner for shaping the way we live and move, and to always do this safe, smart, and sustainably. As a global market and technology leader in material science of steel wire transformation and coating technologies, Bekaert also applies its expertise beyond steel to create new solutions with innovative materials and services. If it drives, ascends, hoists, filters, reinforces, fences or fastens, there is a good chance Bekaert is inside.
The event was a testament to Bekaert's dedication to establishing a sustainable future for all. As we move towards a more sustainable world, it is essential that companies take responsibility and actively work towards reducing their carbon footprint. Bekaert is setting an example for others to follow.
"Establishing the New Impossible" is a phrase that suggests pushing the boundaries of what is considered possible or achievable. It implies a commitment to innovation, creativity, and breaking through existing limits. This concept is often associated with ambitious goals and groundbreaking ideas that challenge conventional thinking.
By providing a sustainable and efficient transportation solution, uSky Transport aims to promote a cleaner environment.
The uSky Transport system is designed to be environmentally friendly, with low energy consumption and zero carbon emissions. Since the system uses autonomous self-propelled electric vehicles uPods that travel on elevated tracks off the ground surface, it eliminates the need for traditional roadways, thus reducing traffic congestion and emissions. Additionally, the system is designed to be energy-efficient. This is attributable not to electric propulsion system only – yes, we are electric! But what is even more crucial – we have very minor energy losses resulting from low rolling friction. In physics, they also call it rolling resistance, or sometimes rolling drag, which is the force resisting the motion when a vehicle rolls on any surface. A turning steel wheel in contact with a steel rail reduces by 85–99% the amount of rolling friction than a rolling rubber pneumatic tire has in contact with an asphalt or concrete pavement. So, much of a car’s gasoline or diesel bill goes into bending and wearing out tires rather than transporting people or freight.
In addition to being a significant waste of energy, the rubbing of tires on pavement is also a significant source of pollution. Every time you replace your tires because they are wearing out, all the rubber that was on the tire when it was new, but has disappeared thousands of miles later, has been ground off in minute particles that have fouled the air and water. These particles stay in the environment just like a discarded tire will endure for years.
The implementation of uSky Transport & Infrastructure Technology can help cities around the world achieve their sustainability goals by reducing carbon emissions and noise pollution, combatting traffic congestion, promoting sustainable and affordable transportation, creating more green spaces, and promoting a cleaner environment.
uSky Transport has the potential to revolutionize the way we travel, offering faster, more efficient, and more environmentally friendly and affordable transportation options.
