T01-C02-011Honolulu rail cars of Hawaii will undergo the first test train ride on the guide way using their own electronic power.



As part of the test of the rapid transit system, conducted by the Honolulu Authority for Rapid Transportation and contractor Ansaldo Hawaii Joint Venture, these electric trains will have operators on board.



But when they are fully operational, the trains will be driverless and fully automated. These trains will connect the major cities of USA with Hawaii.



The engineers will also be energizing the contact rail, also known as “third rail,” used as the rail cars’ power source.



This testing is preordained to observe the acceleration, speed and operational abilities of the rail cars which are under the varying load conditions and at speeds of up to 55 mph.



Brake testing will also be conducted for the final approval of the operation to carry the passengers.
