Dope tests for drivers to be introduced DNCC mayor

first_imgAtiqul IslamIn the face of persistent complaints that drivers on the country’s roads are often drug-addled, Dhaka North City Corporation mayor Atiqul Islam has said dope tests for drivers is set to be introduced.”The process of introducing the test is underway,” he said after attending a meeting with a group of students leading the movement for safe roads at the DNCC office in Gulshan.DNCC organised the meeting with the group of students from several universities in Dhaka and representatives of some concerned authorities including Bangladesh Road Transport Corporation (BRTC), Bangladesh Road Transport Authority (BRTA) and Dhaka Metropolitan Police.The DNCC organised the programme following a Bangladesh University of Professionals (BUP) student’s death in a recent road accident in the city.During the conversation, the students placed some demands including setting up zebra crossings instead of foot-over bridges, making BRTA free from brokers and corruption, installing of digital traffic signals, stopping the plying of buses on contractual basis, and half-fare for students.Giving consent to those demands, the mayor said, “The city corporation has decided to set up push buttons flashlights on zebra crossings, construct footbridges, passenger shades.”The DNCC mayor requested BRTA to undertake all necessary steps to launch an automated system to check vehicles fitness. He also requested private institutions to come forward for giving driving trainings for the drivers.The DNCC mayor said they had started constructing a model road from Malibagh to Kuril Biswa Road.last_img read more

German city to test viability of inductive charging system on two real

first_img More information: www.bombardier.com/en/corporat … cID=0901260d80299a7dprimove.bombardier.com/ © 2013 Phys.org Explore further Plans call for two Swiss built busses (Carrosserie HESS AG) to be retrofitted with the PRIMOVE Technology—streets will be dug up at bus stops to embed the other half of the technology beneath the road bed. Once installed, an initial test run of the system will commence to ensure all of the parts are working correctly. Once that is completed, the two busses will run their normal bus routes (with passengers) for 12 months, during which time researchers from the Karlsruhe Institute of Technology will be analyzing data from the system to monitor, tweak and build a knowledge base of information to be used in building future test sites to optimize the system overall.An inductive charging system is wireless; current is passed through the air—in this case from beneath the roadbed to components installed in the undercarriage of a bus. For such a charging system to work as part of a bus line, the right size batteries must be used. Ideally, small batters can be employed as they will be given frequent charges—this allows for increased efficiency due to a lighter battery load. The batteries must be just large enough to ensure a bus can complete its route each day without ever having to stop for just recharging purposes. In addition to providing a city with zero emissions (at the point of use), electric busses also reduce noise pollution. As part of testing the system, researchers will also be speaking directly with passengers to get their ideas on how well the busses work within the system.The German government has stated its intent to pursue electric technology for busses in the country and has backed up that pledge by offering funds to various projects. For this test, the country’s Federal Ministry of Transport, Building and Urban Development will be footing the bill to the tune of €3.3 million (US$4.35 million).

The power systems are based on the company’s PRIMOVE Technology, whereby vehicles are charged inductively while pausing to load and unload passengers. The primary purpose of the test-run is to determine whether such a system is viable in a real-world environment.
