A Russian-designed electric bus that brings social distancing to the masses,
With COVID-19 wreaking havoc with transportation worldwide, one Russian entrepreneur has proposed innovative, and eco-friendly, solutions for our transit crisis.
One of the hardest-hit industries of the coronavirus pandemic is, of course, transportation. Airlines have been forced to shut down most major routes, subway stations are operating limited services and using public transport in general has us all getting anxious. Which has led many researchers, community leaders and company heads to ask: how do we need to rethink our future?
compelling answer has come from Denis Sverdlov, the Russian founder of the British-based company Arrival. Already the talk of the town in the electric-vehicle business, the firm has designed public transport buses, that not only promise to lower our carbon emissions, but also protect passengers by employing social distancing measures inside the vehicles.
But how is it done?
The Bus
Announced back in June, the Arrival Bus is designed with an adjustable interior to allow for passengers to follow protective measures while travelling and minimize the risk of either contracting or spreading the novel coronavirus.
Adapting the amount of passengers, and the space between them, is key to the approach and is what makes the Arrival Bus different from other vehicles. Seats are able to be swapped out into different configurations to allow for additional space between passengers, or removed entirely. A series of plexiglass barriers offer additional protection, as do no-touch signals that let drivers know a stop’s been requested. The bus also claims to have seamless seats, which help with cleaning and disinfecting the interior more effectively.
This flexibility is a major asset as, though restrictions are easing in Russia and across the world, certain social distancing measures may be in place until 2021 or even 2022.
But even without taking into account the virus, there are a number of features that truly make the Arrival Bus the bus of the future. It will be equipped with smart technology, for example, that will let passengers select their stop from their smartphones (even before actually getting onto the vehicle). They will also be able to see how many people are on the bus, allowing them to make a choice to join or to wait until the next one.
The Man
Though currently living in London, Arrival founder Denis Sverdlov has had a long history of success in Russia. He co-founded the mobile company Yota in 2007, which was one of the first providers of broadband mobile internet. It was crucial to developing the country’s first working 4G network, starting in provincial capitals like Kazan, Novosibirsk and Krasnodar in 2011, before expanding to the capital. Soon after, Sverdlov sold the company to famous Russian billionaire Alisher Usmanov for approximately $1.5 billion and went to work in the government, eventually rising to the post of deputy minister of communication.
This was not to last for long, however, as new regulations introduced in 2013 required officials, along with their families, to close foreign bank accounts and disown property outside the country. Choosing business over his political career, Sverdlov relocated to London and eventually founded Arrival in 2015.
The Company
Arrival had relatively humble beginnings. Its original mission was to create electric, low-emission vans that could be used inside cities on short courier routes. It has since expanded to a company with over 800 employees with development centers in the US, the UK, Germany, Russia and Israel.
Before the public transit bus announcement this summer, Arrival made waves back in January, when it was announced that it’s first vans would hit the streets of Paris, London and various American cities by the end of 2020 – and, in the process, it has picked up some major investors.
Sverdlov was the only shareholder until 2020, but in January, he was joined by manufacturing giants Hyundai and Kia, jump-starting Arrival with a $3.3 billion valuation. Soon after, delivery company UPS decided to order 10,000 electric vans in order to compete with none other than online retail giant Amazon. Amazon recently purchased 100,000 electric vans from Rivian, an American automaker, sparking what might be the equivalent of an eco-friendly vehicle “arms race” that Sverdlov is sure to use to propel his company even further into tech-stardom.
The Market
Sverdlov’s successes are paving the way for electric ownership worldwide, which is a trend that’s becoming more popular, as electric vehicles are becoming more accessible and the climate movement continues entering the mainstream. Creating vehicles that will help us navigate the future of the pandemic, like the Arrival Bus, will only further the company’s reach and relevance.
But, while the market for electric vehicles is increasing, there are a number of obstacles present in Russia that pioneers like Sverdlov still need to overcome.
It’s not that the Russian market is a stranger to electric cars: the billionaire Mikhail Prokhorov introduced the ‘Yo-mobile’ back in 2010, which garnered over 210,000 pre-orders and even a high-profile test-drive from Vladimir Putin himself. But the crisis in 2014 caused the company to close its doors, and the electric market is still struggling to recover. According to the Autostat analytics agency, in 2019, only 353 electric cars were sold countrywide – gas-driven car sales, on the other hand, reached 1.72 million. The U.S., China and Europe offer tax cut programs to help with the purchase of eco-friendly vehicles, and there is a similar program being discussed in the Russian Duma. But, as of yet, this kind of support has yet to be implemented.
But that’s not to say that there’s no progress at all. Hyundai, one of Arrival’s investors, is working to develop driverless cars with the Russian tech giant Yandex, and Sverdlov continues to work on bringing his new vehicles into the market. Perhaps the pandemic will speed the process up, as his social-distancing buses provide a home-grown solution to an international health crisis – it also doesn’t hurt that Arrival claims its buses will cost the same as traditional, gas-run alternatives.

Well being an AC Milan fan(my 2nd favourite after Mohun Bagan) I am really glad that Zlatan joined ACM and what he is doing at 38 just blows your mind. Post covid, ACM has been undefeated and even managed to destroy Juventus,Roma and Lazio.

अगर टायर में कोई नुकीली चीज लगती है या टायर पंक्चर हो जाता है तो टायर अपने आप ठीक हो जाएगा और आपको इसे ठीक करवाने की जरूरत भी नहीं पड़ेगी। ( CEAT Milaze Tyre ) ( Puncture Proof Tyres )

नई दिल्ली: जो लोग बाइक चलाते हैं और आए दिन बाइक का टायर पंक्चर हो जाता है तब उन्हें काफी दिक्कत होती है। ऐसे लोगों के लिए CEAT इंडिया ने मोटरसाइकिल पंक्चरप्रूफ ट्यूबलेस टायर्स की एक नई रेंज लॉन्च की है। इस रेंज का नाम है Milaze और रेंज के यह
नए टायर CEAT की पेटेंटेड सीलेंट तकनीक के साथ आते हैं जो पंक्चर को सील करते हैं और टायर को ख़राब होने से बचाते हैं। इसका मतलब ये है कि अगर टायर में कोई नुकीली चीज लगती है या टायर पंक्चर हो जाता है तो टायर अपने आप ठीक हो जाएगा और आपको इसे ठीक करवाने की जरूरत भी नहीं पड़ेगी। ( CEAT Milaze Tyre ) ( Puncture Proof Tyres )

यह तकनीक सुनने में तो आम लगती है लेकिन इससे ना सिर्फ आपका कीमती समय बचेगा बल्कि आपका पैसा भी सुरक्षित रहेगा। सीलेंट तकनीक को इन-हाउस में विकसित किया गया है, और हवा बाहर न निकले इस तरह से डिज़ाइन किया गया है। 2.5 मिमी तक की चौड़ी कील के कारण हुए पंचर ख़ुद ही ठीक हो जाते हैं। यह तकनीक ऐसे लोगों के बड़े काम आएगी जो ज्यादातर समय अपनी बाइक पर बिताते हैं और उनका सारा काम बाइक से ही होता है।

नई तकनीक के बारे में बात करते हुए, CEAT टायर्स के मुख्य मार्केटिमग अधिकारी, अमित तोलानी ने कहा, "CEAT पंचर सुरक्षित टायर हमारे उपभोक्ताओं के समय और ऊर्जा को बचाने के लिए और किसी भी दोपहिया सवार के लिए सबसे आम समस्या से निपटने के उद्देश्य से शुरू किए गए हैं। टायर की इस रेंज की विशेषता ख़ुद ठीक होना है और हम मानते हैं कि बहुत सारे ग्राहक इससे आकर्षित होंगे।"

यह नए CEAT टायर निश्चित रूप से एक दोपहिया सवार के लिए सुरक्षा पहलू को बेहतर बनाने में मदद करेंगे, यह किसी भी संभावित दुर्घटनाओं को रोक सकते है जो पंचर टायर के कारण हो सकती है। इसके अलावा, कंपनी एक सुरक्षित हेक्सागोनल बॉक्स में नया पंचर सुरक्षित टायर दे रही है। टायर सात अलग-अलग आकारों में उपलब्ध हैं और लोकप्रिय मोटरसाइकिल जैसे - हीरो ग्लैमर, पैशन प्रो i3S, स्प्लेंडर +, स्प्लेंडर आईस्मार्ट, होंडा शाइन और यहां तक कि बजाज की पूरी रेंज में भी लग जाता है। फिल्हाल यह चुनिंदा दक्षिणी बाजारों में उपलब्ध होगा जैसे केरल, कर्नाटक में बैंगलोर और मैसूर के साथ-साथ तमिलनाडु में कोयंबटूर और सेलम।

SpaceX capsule with 2 NASA astronauts make first splashdown in 45 years
Flight by Elon Musk’s company was first commercially built and operated spacecraft to carry people to and from orbit, could clear the way for tourist flights from next year,
CAPE CANAVERAL, Florida (AP) — Two NASA astronauts returned to Earth on Sunday in a dramatic, retro-style splashdown, their capsule parachuting into the Gulf of Mexico to close out an unprecedented test flight by Elon Musk’s SpaceX company.
was the first splashdown by US astronauts in 45 years, with the first commercially built and operated spacecraft to carry people to and from orbit. The return clears the way for another SpaceX crew launch as early as next month and possible tourist flights next year.
Test pilots Doug Hurley and Bob Behnken rode the SpaceX Dragon capsule back to Earth less than a day after departing the International Space Station and two months after blasting off from Florida. The capsule parachuted into the calm gulf waters about 40 miles off the coast of Pensacola, hundreds of miles from Tropical Storm Isaias pounding Florida’s Atlantic coast.
“Welcome back to planet Earth and thanks for flying SpaceX,” said Mission Control from SpaceX headquarters.
“It was truly our honor and privilege,” replied Hurley.
More than an hour after splashdown, the astronauts emerged from their capsule on the deck of a recovery ship, both signaling a thumbs-up as they headed for medical exams.
Their ride home in the capsule dubbed Endeavour was fast, bumpy and hot, at least on the outside.
The spacecraft went from a screaming orbital speed of 17,500 mph (28,000 kph) to 350 mph (560 kph) during atmospheric reentry, and finally to 15 mph (24 kph) at splashdown. Peak heating during descent was 3,500 degrees Fahrenheit (1,900 degrees Celsius). The anticipated top G forces felt by the crew: four to five times the force of Earth’s gravity.
Within a half-hour of splashdown, the scorched and blistered 15-foot capsule was on board a SpaceX recovery ship with a staff of more than 40, including doctors and nurses. To keep the returning astronauts safe in the pandemic, the recovery crew quarantined for two weeks and were tested for the coronavirus.
The opening of the hatch was held up briefly by extra checks for toxic rocket fumes outside the capsule. After medical exams, the astronauts were expected to fly home to Houston for a reunion with their wives and sons.
Hurley offered final thanks just before he exited the capsule. “Anybody who’s touched Endeavour, you should take a moment to just cherish the day, especially given all the things that have happened this year.”
The last time NASA astronauts returned from space to water was on July 24, 1975, in the Pacific, the scene of most splashdowns, to end a joint US-Soviet mission known as Apollo-Soyuz. The Mercury and Gemini crews in the early to mid-1960s parachuted into the Atlantic, while most of the later Apollo capsules hit the Pacific. The lone Russian “splashdown” was in 1976 on a partially frozen lake amid a blizzard following an aborted mission; the harrowing recovery took hours.
SpaceX made history with this mission, which launched May 30 from NASA’s Kennedy Space Center. It was the first time a private company launched people into orbit and also the first launch of NASA astronauts from home turf in nearly a decade. Hurley came full circle, serving as pilot of NASA’s last space shuttle flight in 2011 and the commander of this SpaceX flight.
Musk monitored the descent and splashdown from SpaceX Mission Control in Hawthorne, California.
US President Donald Trump and Vice President Mike Pence, who both watched the launch in Florida, sent congratulations..
“Great to have NASA Astronauts return to Earth after very successful two month mission. Thank you to all!” Trump tweeted.
NASA turned to SpaceX and also Boeing to build capsules and ferry astronauts to and from the space station, following the retirement of the shuttles. Until Hurley and Behnken rocketed into orbit, NASA astronauts relied on Russian rockets. SpaceX already had experience hauling cargo to the space station, bringing those capsules back to a Pacific splashdown.
“This is the next era in human spaceflight where NASA gets to be the customer,” NASA Administrator Jim Bridenstine said from Johnson Space Center in Houston shortly before the astronauts’ return.
SpaceX needs six weeks to inspect the capsule before launching the next crew around the end of September. This next mission of four astronauts will spend a full six months aboard the space station. Hurley and Behnken’s capsule will be refurbished for another flight next spring. A Houston company run by a former NASA official, meanwhile, has partnered with SpaceX to send three customers to the space station in fall 2021.
Boeing doesn’t expect to launch its first crew until next year. The company encountered significant software problems in the debut of its Starliner capsule, with no one aboard, last year. Its capsules will touch down in the US Southwest desert.
By beating Boeing, SpaceX laid claim to a small US flag left at the space station by Hurley and the rest of the last shuttle crew. The flag — which also flew on the first shuttle flight — was carefully packed aboard the Dragon for the homecoming.
Also on board: a toy dinosaur named Tremor, sent into space by the astronauts’ young sons.
The boys recorded a wake-up call for their fathers Sunday morning, urging them to “rise and shine” and “we can’t wait to see you.”
“Don’t worry, you can sleep in tomorrow,” said Behnken’s 6-year-old son Theo, who was promised a puppy after the flight. “Hurry home so we can go get my dog.”
