Overview of The
SkyPOD Transit System
SkyPOD Transit Systems (SkyPODS), is a stand
alone joint venture between APVG and Integrated
Impact Driven Ventures (Integrated Ventures),
solar division, and currently remains on the
drawing board. Although our SkyPODS business
model incorporates a unique aerial transit system,
neither APVG or Integrated Ventures developed it.
Several aerial maglev transit firms are working on
As our world continues to move toward a transition to electric and hydrogen fueled transportation
options, we believe the SkyPODS business model can offer substantial future growth potential and
benefits for both private and targeted public transportation needs. As such, we intend to partner with firms driving this technology to develop aerial transit systems and incorporate our solar electric systems business into them.
In 2017, APVG sought out
an aerial transit system
and created a SkyPOD
network for its proposed
golf resort development
planned for the Island of
Maui, Hawaii (seen here).
The goal was to use the
SkyPODS system to move
residents and hotel guests
throughout the property,
from hotel to restaurants,
the golf club, shopping
center, apartments or
senior living center.
SkyPOD in our system
consisted of mainly 8
passenger cabin Pods.
Riders would enter the private - single party SkyPOD cabin at their destination and select their destination on the internal control panel, which would then automatically take them to their desired destination without stopping at any stations in between. The SkyPOD track can be seen in the above rendering, with solar electric generating panels above the entire track.
SkyPODS are powered by electric motors that travel within an elevated tube/track. They rapid charge as they stop to transfer occupants as needed, and sense traffic ahead of them, plus automatically divert around regular station stops. Once they arrive at a destination they stack behind other SkyPODS, until someone enters the first one in line and programs it to the next destination.
SkyPODS AI is smart in that if to many are located at any one location, they will automatically send an empty unit to a location that needs more, once less than five are at that station. The design goal was to have a minimum of five ready at all times at all locations for fast transit options. Look for this to become part of our resort project in the future.
