The Boring Company is a brainchild of Tesla CEO Elon Musk. It envisions a future where cars go from 1 place to another quickly using underground tunnels. On moving platforms which can achieve very high rates the cars would be positioned. To demonstrate this, The Boring Company staged a race between a Tesla in its tunnel and one.
One Tesla was placed at a 1.14 mile tunnel that runs beneath SpaceX’s Hawthrone, California headquarters while the other was on the public road with regular traffic conditions.
As you can imagine, the one in the tunnel was victorious, since it was able to go there and faster wasn & rsquo; t any visitors. It beat the road Tesla by 3 minutes and 8 seconds. The tunnel Tesla had finished the line before the road Tesla had passed its first traffic light.
It’s also pertinent to mention that the car in the tunnel hit a rate of 127 mph, those aren’t the kind of speeds which you can do on city roads. The Boring Company has been promoting this idea. It made a $1 billion bid for building a tunnel to Chicago’s O’Hare Airport and has been awarded a $48.6 million project to build a pair of tunnels below the Las Vegas Convention Center.
