At this level, it won’t be flawed to assume that the Coronavirus Pandemic goes to vary our close to future in a large means. One of the largest adjustments that we may see could possibly be within the public transport sector as that’s normally the bloodline of a metropolis, huge or small, and is the place the place individuals from all corners of town get collectively to commute. In such conditions, sustaining social distancing could be a problem in addition to sustaining minimal contact with individuals utilizing the identical type of transport. However, one explicit video tweeted by Mahindra Group Chairman Anand Mahindra showcases the extent of innovation our nation is keen to make to be able to get round this downside as a lot as they will.
As will be seen within the video, which appears to be of an electric-rickshaw, the operator of the automobile sits alone. It is behind him the place all the automobile has been segregated into small cabins eradicating the potential for individuals coming in bodily contact with those that are seated beside them, and even round them for that matter.
The capabilities of our individuals to quickly innovate & adapt to new circumstances by no means ceases to amaze me. @rajesh664 we have to get him as an advisor to our R&D & product growth groups! pic.twitter.com/ssFZUyvMr9

This has been executed by segregated the passenger compartment into 4 sections with all of the passengers having an entry level to the sitting location, going through in the other way to that of the driving force. Usually, there may be are two seats within the center compartment going through one another the place we frequently see as much as six individuals sitting shut. But on this case, one of many seats – those which have passengers sitting within the path of the driving force – has been eliminated.
Another good factor that may be seen from the video is that it solely has two passengers sitting within the e-rickshaw who’re sitting diagonally throughout the compartment through which the opposite passenger is seated.
All in all, it’s a sensible concept that reveals the extent of creativity of us Indians.
