Suelta el volante y relájate: el tren de la carretera conduce por ti

9 noviembre 2009 - 16:04 - Autor:

La flexibilidad del coche combinada con la seguridad del tren. Eso es lo que pretende lograr un proyecto de la Unión Europea que contempla lo siguiente: un camión hace de “locomotora” a un número de entre dos y ocho vehículos que se sumen al convoy. Los conductores de los coches “vagones” pueden soltar el volante y ponerse a leer, disfrutar del paisaje o, los más confiados, echarse una cabezadita.

El primer vehículo está conducido por un conductor profesional, que se dirige a un destino determinado. A él podrán ir sumándose -y retirándose- cualquier coche, autobús o camión que se dirija al mismo punto, dejando los mandos de su vehículo en manos del primero. La coordinación entre los vehículos se llevará a cabo a través de un sistema de navegación (como los GPS actuales) y una unidad de transmisión/recepción, según la página web de la empresa que lidera el proyecto.

El proyecto Sartre, de la UE, está aún en fase de concepción y tiene una duración prevista de tres años, aunque se espera que en 2011 se empiecen a realizar las primeras pruebas en las carreteras de España, Reino Unido y Suecia.

La idea de los “trenes de carretera” (road train) es aumentar la seguridad, permitiendo a los conductores descansar de la tarea de conducción, pero también reducir el consumo de combustible. Según los cálculos iniciales cada uno de los vehículos que se sumaran al convoy podrían ahorrar el 20% del combustible.

“El objetivo es dar un salto cualitativo en los métodos de transporte”, según declaraciones a BBC del coordinador del proyecto, Tom Robinson, del despacho de ingeniería Ricardo. La idea inicial era equipar las autopistas con sensores para el control de los trenes pero el coste sería prohibitivo, de modo que finalmente cada vehículo tendrá su propio sistema de monitorización que bien podría ser “un sensor de secciones que recopile información y se la brinde al conductor líder, de modo que éste pueda saber qué está sucediendo en todos los vehículos”.

Además de la parte puramente operativa del sistema, las pruebas intentarán limar los aspectos psicológicos del mismo, como la sensación de seguridad que puedan tener los conductores que sigan al vehículo en cabeza. Así, “los conductores de turismos no quieren circular entre camiones”, explica Robinson. También se considera la posibilidad de que en un futuro los conductores estén dispuestos a pagar una cantidad por el privilegio de que alguien les conduzca hasta casa.

El problema es que las carreteras (el nivel de curvas, desniveles, etc…) no son los mismo en España (salvo en parte de la mesesta) que en el resto de Europa.

Si estoy de acuerdo.

-Que pasará cuando 3 de esos trenes vallan por el primer carril seguidos, te encuentras en el segundo carril y quieres tomar la siguiente salida, la mejor forma será pasar al primer carril delante del camión? se podrá pasar por entre los otros coches?

-seguridad: una persona se queda dormida, su ruta no coincide con la del camión, tiene que desengancharse durante el trayecto, como se despierta al conductor? y si tiene le sueño pesado?

- en caso de accidente: quién tiene la culpa?

- precio: lo pagaremos nosotros tanto con impuestos o mediante el kit que deberá instalar en el coche.

Son varios aspectos a tener en cuenta y seguro que existen muchos que complicarán la implantación de esta forma de conducir.

Prefiero que se investigue en sensores que identifiquen al conductor mediante huella digital en el volante, tome medidas periódica del estado del conductor, nivel de alcohol o tiempos de descanso cada x kilómetros.

Que guapo. Habra que ver si se lleva a buen recaudo, y por supuesto cuanto termina costando esa movida.

Yo creo que las mentes pensantes y resto de esfuerzos habría que hacerlos prioritariemente para reducir la dependencia energética del petróleo, que es lo más grave que se nos viene encima: en cuanto llegue ‘el pico del petróleo’, momento que que la demanda supere a la oferta, empezarán a dispararse exponencialmente los precios y dado que toda la vida económica gira en torno a él, aparecerá una hiperinflacción galopante que provocará escasez de todo: materias primas, alimentos, … etc. La hiperinflacción afectará a casi todo, por ejemplo no afectará a la vivienda y hará que los precios vuelvan a su ser, aunque nos habrá subido todo lo que se pueda comprar y nuestros ahorros se quedarán por los suelos. Así que para que los ‘Trenes de la carretera’ puedan funcionar tiene que haber coches y la energía que los mueva, así que debían de dejarse de tonterías y empezar a pensar seriamente.

Es una idea muy original, pero hay algo que me temo:
el convoy sale de A a B a una hora determinada, los conductores deben pillarlo para engancharse y el que venga con retraso le pisará el doble a sabiendas que si logra alcanzar al camión podrá hecharse el resto del trayecto descansando. El resultado: chorropotocientuplicación de los accidentes en las salidas de las poblaciones xD
