Remote Controlled Train In Australia
Four hours is still a very long time to be stuck in a locomotive travelling through 130-degree heat. That’s why these engines can be remote controlled. They’re outfitted with GE’s Locotrol Distributed Power system: a series of 250 telemetry and environmental sensors that generate 9 million data points every hour. Engineers working from a (hopefully air conditioned) remote location can moderate each of the four locomotive’s power outputs as easily as if they were in the cab themselves.
55 million tons of ore
boasts a 4,400 horsepower engine and a set of four can propel each 232-car long, 30,000 ton ore shipment up to 50 mph. That translates into four, 4-hour rides every day from the company’s mine in the remote Pilbara region out to a stockyard in Port Headland. “Every time they go past that point, they transmit data that’s received at our Remote Monitoring and Diagnostic Center in Erie, Pa., and that enables us to get a status update on the locomotives- the different parameters of oil and water temperature and so on,”

Mercedes to introduce 10 plug-in hybrids before 2017
The automaker is planning to launch 10 new plug-in hybrid models between now and 2017 — on average, that’s a new green machine every four months. The only two confirmed US models so far are the 2016 C350e (above) and S550e, both of which arrive this fall, but Mercedes is promising that vehicles from the C-Class on up (including the GLE-Class SUV) will get the semi-electric treatment. Between these and pure EVs like the B-Class Electric Drive, you may not have to compromise on model selection just because you want an eco-friendly ride with a tri-star badge.
