businesstraverse.com is pleased to announce Swyft Cities won the businesstraverse.com Sessions: Mobility 2022 pitch-off and will be accelerated to the Battlefield 200 at businesstraverse.com Disrupt in October. Beyond Aero is second.
The Mountain View-based company is committed to improving transportation through the use of autonomous, lightweight, fixed-cable vehicles. The company says its solution offers a lower cost per kilometer with fewer CO2 emissions than conventional transportation alternatives.
Swyft sees this as a new form of urban mobility that can solve transportation problems in densely populated areas, including corporate campuses, airports, universities and tourist districts. The platform is new because the vehicles move on a stationary cable, allowing for new connections which can be added when needed. This adds capacity to an area, allowing for higher density and more profitable developments. It also reduces the cost of parking and traffic restriction. In some areas, providing connections within the site can be of high value.
Beyond Aero, based in Paris/Toulouse, France, builds long-haul aircraft powered by hydrogen-electric propulsion. The first aircraft is a private zero-emissions aircraft (6-9 seats), designed for hydrogen propulsion, with a range of 1,000 miles.
