TOSA buses power up for less
Interesting arm mechanism and bus stop overhead design for the flash charger system. Overhead fast recharge is somewhat attractive from an installation standpoint (no road ripping for a embedded inductive charger), but like any flash system, requires high power delivery equipment. Also, paired flywheels sound like a better mechanism for the bus energy storage, and perhaps the bus stop's buffer bank

Very High Speed Transit System
Interesting bit on a possible nuclear subterrene, a tunnel boring machine using an high heat annular cutting face, which melts the rock and seals the tunnel, while passing over a smoothed out rock core that can be cut into large blocks for debris removal and transport.

ABB demonstrates technology to power flash charging electric bus in 15 seconds
Fast charge systems have been proposed in the past for pseudo-trolleybuses and trolleybuses with limited off-route capability via battery. With current PHEV and EV bus types, this might have legs, as it avoids trolleybus electric line infrastructure, and in many places, people expect enclosed bus stops so the charger infrastructure can be built into the stop more easily.. Though from an installation and operations standpoint, a wireless charge pad embedded in the road in front of stop seems potentially more usable. The real problem is the fast charge itself, as most batteries can't accept power that fast, so you are forced to move into supercapacitor type systems, or perhaps electric flywheels.
