Magnetically-propelled cars could save our cities from congestion
Philipp Siebourg's Induction Powered Vehicle (IPV) is a complete transportation system designed to reduce congestion in big urban areas. So instead of bumper-to-bumper traffic in the city, Siebourg's concept calls for a car-free, magnetized area, serviced exclusively by automated personal transports.

Each IPV will be controlled by it's passenger through a mobile device. You can drive and park at an IPV loading zone, something like what you'd do at a bus station. Siebourg also proposes for an alternative system in managing traffic, sort of how some intersections in Tokyo operate: all the cars proceed at once, then pedestrians, then bikers - rather than mixing it all up.
