The 2019 World Artificial Intelligence Conference will be held in Shanghai on August 29-31. Musk has confirmed attendance and will deliver a keynote speech.
In December 2016, Musk, who was in a traffic jam, said that he wanted to set up an underground tunnel company to solve the traffic congestion problem. Because in English, the word Boring has the meaning of excavation, so the company was named The Boring Company.
According to Musk's vision, he will install a "pallet" for the car to be suspended on the ground. After the car is parked, the pallet will drop to the ground and transport the car quickly between the underground tunnels, reaching a maximum speed of 200 kilometers per hour. In addition, these trays have unified computer monitoring that optimizes pallet speed through seamless arrangement. In the tunnel, the system will automatically transfer the car through the electric skateboard, which has a maximum speed of 130 mph. Musk has said that this underground tunnel network will have up to 30 tunnels for transporting cars and super trains.
It’s unrealistic to send a car to the underground. In fact, more than two years since its establishment, Musk’s “boring company” has made some progress in the United States.
On July 20, 2017, Musk announced that the “boring company” had been “verbally” approved by the regulatory authorities and began planning to establish a super-high-speed underground transportation system connecting New York and Washington (about 363 km). Travel time between cities is reduced to 29 minutes.
On May 22 this year, "boring company" also received the first order. The Las Vegas Rally and Visitors Authority (LVCVA) voted through a $48.6 million contract with Musk's tunnel mining company, The Boring Company. Under the contract, “Borry Company” will build the LVCC loop on the ground floor of the Las Vegas Convention Center, including two lanes, three stations and a pedestrian tunnel, so that visitors or visitors can be transported from the new showroom to the new North Hall. .
