The Superbus Concept is an initiative from Professor Wubbo Ockels. The basic idea is that Superbuses will provide comfortable, demand-driven, point-to-point transport and thus be able to compete with the car and train. This will be possible because these vehicles can travel at high speed on specially built ‘Supertracks’ as well as at normal speed on existing roads.
A team linked to the Technical University in Delft, made up partly of students, is engaged in making a prototype. In addition to the development of an experimental model, the Superbus project includes research into the corresponding infrastructure, logistics, safety, reliability and economic efficiency of the vehicle. Since material usage is an important component, TenCate advanced composites are deployed.
