A movie showing how short the 'underground tunnel' that can run at 200km per hour is released

As CEO of Tesla and Space X , Elon Musk has also set up a tunnel mining company, The Boring Company . Finally, the Boring Company's test tunnel was unveiled in December 2018, and the movie shows how the Tesla car actually travels through the tunnel. A movie has been published showing how fast the underground tunnel can travel by comparing how the car travels with such test underground tunnels and general roads.

The 'underground tunnel' planned by The Boring Company is a 'high-speed moving tunnel' that can run through a city at a speed of 200 km / h or more at once in a city mixed with traffic jams and not just a tunnel. The first tunnel was completed in December 2018, and the inside picture was made public.

And this time, the movie is a movie that shows how fast you can move using the tunnel of The Boring Company. We are using a test tunnel dug in Hawthorne in southwest Los Angeles to compare the speed of the road and the tunnel.

Two cars seen behind a woman with a flag. The car on the left is parked in the parking lot and the car on the right is above the lift for the underground tunnel.

The race starts when the woman raises her hands.

The screen is split in two, with the car traveling on the general road on the left and the underground tunnel on the right. Cars traveling on the general road are about to leave the parking lot, and cars traveling in the underground tunnel are going underground gradually by lift.

In about 20 seconds, a car traveling on a general road can leave the parking lot, and a car running in the underground tunnel can get down to the front of the underground tunnel.

And the car running in the underground tunnel starts in the tunnel that glows green. On the other hand, cars traveling on a general road can not move because they are waiting for traffic lights.

Vehicles traveling through underground tunnels topped 100 miles per hour (approx. 161 km) before vehicles on general roads could not move at all. Gungun and speeding up.

Forty-eight seconds after the start of the race, the car running in the underground tunnel recorded a maximum speed of 127 miles per hour (about 204 km). It is a speed that can not be put out very much on a general road. On the other hand, vehicles traveling on general roads are still waiting for red lights, and Mr. Mask has started a project to construct underground tunnels for traffic in order to overcome the situation of general roads that show such a devastating crowded condition. is.

I could see the exit of the underground tunnel in about 1 minute 10 seconds ...

A car traveling through the underground tunnel reached the exit km away.

We could park the car in the underground tunnel in the target parking lot in about 1 minute and 30 seconds, but the car on the general road is still waiting for the traffic light after leaving the parking lot.

At around 1 minute and 50 seconds, I was finally able to launch a car on a general road. The driver of the car traveling in the underground tunnel has already left the car and is waiting for the arrival of a car traveling on a general road on his hand.

It was approximately 4 minutes and 45 seconds from the start that the car following the general road arrived at the target parking lot. The result was a big difference of over 3 minutes.

The present results show that it is now possible to travel through the tunnel at a much faster speed than when the tunnel was first opened in December 2018. On the other hand, this race is not exactly the same as actual operation, and Thomas Ricker, deputy editor of

The Verge of technology media, said, “This comparison shows the speed of the communication company before its 5G release. It is the same as boasting of

However, in reality, traveling movies in underground tunnels have been made public, and the tunnel construction project of The Boring Company has made great progress. In early May 2019, The Boring Company announced that it had received an order to build an underground tunnel to move smoothly through the Las Vegas Convention Center, one of the world's largest convention centers.

Las Vegas bets on Elon Musk's Boring Company for tunnel project-The Verge

The tunnel construction plan at the Las Vegas Convention Center is relatively small and will serve as a tunnel for traveling through large facilities. Construction is expected to cost approximately $ 30 million (approximately $ 3.3 billion) to $ 55 million (approximately $ 6 billion), but underground tunnels that are not affected by the weather and will not affect facilities on the ground are That's a very attractive option. It takes about 15 minutes on foot to move from station 1 to station 3 in the image below, but it is possible to move in just 1 minute using the underground tunnel.

According to The Boring Company, the underground tunnel at the Las Vegas Convention Center can be built in about a year and is scheduled to open in time for the January 2021

In addition, while talking with Twitter users, Mr. Mask says, “There are only a few layers in the ground while there are only a few tunnels in the ground, so a train should run on the ground and a car should run in the ground. It is claimed.

The Bay Area High Speed Rail (BART) , on the other hand, says, 'Because of the large capacity of the train, we carry 28,000 passengers per hour,' and far more people than cars. We claim that we should give priority to trains that can be transported. At the time of writing, Mr. Mask did not respond to BART's remarks.
