Safety is the most important aspect of any transport system, and especially of a new and untested Hyperloop. Thats why adding a device that will alert of any problems in keeping the trains at speed, distance and of whether the human/android is paying attention to the situational awareness.
So It is a bit scary that the lessons of past rail disasters have not been taken into consideration, even if the rail line has been in use alot and forever.
“The question for the rest of us is why that train — and thousands of other trains in commuter and freight railroads across the country — had no automated system to slow or stop it when it ran out of control.
The idea is not new.”
Exactly. Why is safety such a second thought in this country? The hyperloop must be the safest form of transport ever.
