I still describe why formulating the impact is very important. That is one of the main reasons for our existence. So, how and why do we define our impact?
For complex systems, the impact seldom is just one sentence or one measurable figure. So how do we approach our case scenarios? First, we have main drivers for the impact: energy, capacity, and investment costs as the main drivers. Then we have all the additional values, which is a long list of benefits that are built or are naturally born into the system: zero-dust formation when driving, silence, on-demand services, high-speed transit, multifunctional, easy to use, accessible, predictable service, flexible construction, superior service from the ecosystem, and so on…
What is the difference between main drivers and all the additional features? We use main drivers to determine the business case for each track system. Those three items will always show us the payback time/cash flow if there is a desire to build a commercially solid transit system. In urban areas, that typically is the justification calculation of how the financing and ownership of the system are being made and the local financial effect on the local citizens or communities. This is always strongly related to the people flow where the services are needed as the transit already exists in another form of travel.
All those additional features are key points to drive the change; those are the desires that we have identified and will eventually fill. We have an out-of-the-box approach to set new ways for service, already from the smallest financially solid product, which can be part of a greater travel chain network. Once the smallest viable product is being installed, utilization of that system will allow financing for future expansions. This is a self-feeding system with present energy and service quality-based pricing scenarios.
It all leads finally to the figures.
Yearly, we can save hundreds of thousands of liters of gasoline; we can save hundreds of thousands of hours of people’s time.
We can serve millions of annual trips with relatively small installations. However, with the services provided by the ecosystem, we end up with tens of millions of transactions. It is very relative to think about the effect in a year or ten years. Know your essential basic parameters, and then do the analysis. We know our values, and these values are our vision.
We believe that tens of millions of transactions, millions of liters of gasoline saved, speed of travel significantly fast, and the most which begin when we can daily serve a significant amount of people with improved travel chains in public mass transit.
Co-operating to illustrate the impact will be our focus. We are modern in utilizing existing data, digital twins/world, and travel service mapping tools to define our position and what kind of change we can enable. This gives us the advantage of developing a co-operational work model to shape the travel scenes. We also have a nice thought of how our presence can be and how we will utilize the metaverse, the time is not yet right, but we are ready. We will discuss these possibilities in due time. The first focus is the impact illustration for new types of travel chains. Our belief is that finding a meaningful impact will drive the change. What is your way of presenting the meaningful impact? We believe in the freedom to travel.
