18 januari 2015: The Final Speech of Dutch physicist Prof. dr. Wubbo Ockels

22-09-2010: Wubbo Ockels first Dutch astronaut and iniator of Superbus , inventor, made the first ride of the Superbus Vehicle designed by Antonia Terzi. The Superbus drives 250 km/h on a special track and drives also on hignways and secondary roads. The propulsion is electroc. Superbus is and innovative new pubic transport and a project of the Delft University of  Technology. Joris Melkert forms next to Ockels and Terzi the team that leads the project.

23-03-2010: “Carefree and comfortable travel, customized according to your needs. You can get in the vehicle wherever and whenever you need. It will take you to your destination without any changeovers. During the journey, you can get on with your work, or sit back and enjoy the speed and the luxury. This service will be yours for a fare which is comparable to the prices of present day’s public transport.”

This is not a dream, but a concept that formed the starting point for the development of Superbus as an innovative alternative for today’s personal mobility. Superbus is a new concept for sustainable mobility, which consists of a new vehicle, new type of dedicated infrastructure and new logistics. For this new concept, all of the intelligence and innovation is put into the vehicle, whereas the dedicated infrastructure, where the Superbus runs at 250 km/h, is made of relatively cheap concrete roads.

Superbus is 15 meters long and provides seating for 23 passengers. In order to improve comfort and to allow individuality, it has 8 doors per side. Superbus does not have a fixed schedule and the logistics allow for flexibility in high volume transport on demand, via a central routing optimization system. Thus the vehicle transports passengers from target to destination without the need for changeovers.

The design of Superbus has been developed around some key themes. Superbus is safe due to obstacle detection systems (through radar equipment and a fast responding electronic guidance system), high maneuverability and formidable breaking power. Superbus is designed to be flexible regarding different travel needs. The two different interior cabins are designed for people travelling alone or in groups. Superbus is also flexible due to the routing, since there is no fixed route for Superbus and the routes are customized based on the preferred starts and destinations of the passengers. Since it also runs on standard roads, it can fit seamlessly into the existing infrastructure.

Superbus is sustainable. It is an electrically powered vehicle which uses rechargeable batteries. Because it is lightweight and because of its highly streamlined construction, Superbus has low energy consumption. Beside all this, Superbus is designed to provide a sensational travel experience. The level of comfort should be comparable to travelling with a luxurious sedan. This sensational experience will be realized through high speed, ergonomic interior design and personal multimedia equipment for each individual passenger.

Superbus is developed in the Netherlands, but it can be regarded as a global investment since the Netherlands will subsequently be able to market it worldwide. Source: The Superbus Project

    De superbus is weer een stapje dichterbij. Het elektronisch aangedreven voertuig moet in de toekomst met 250 kilometer per uur, de file voorbij razen op speciaal aangelegde rijbanen.

    De TU Delft presenteert vandaag op de Internationale Autombil-Ausstellung in Hannover het prototype van de bus aan de pers.

    Oud-astronaut Wubbo Ockels is vanochtend om 11.08 overleden in het Anthonie van Leeuwenhoekziekenhuis in Amsterdam.

    Wubbo Ockels was de eerste Nederlander in de ruimte. Hij werd een nationale beroemdheid toen hij op 30 oktober 1985 met het ruimtevuur Challenger werd gelanceerd en zeven dagen in de ruimte verbleef. Wubbo Ockels is 68 jaar geworden.
