700-mph hyperloop transportation plan unveiled

Elon Musk's hyperloop could revolutionise public transport | The Economist

Elon Musk's Hyperloop technology has the potential to revolutionise the way we travel. In a contest he held in Los Angeles, some of the world's brightest engineers gathered to find the best way to make this billionaire's pipe dream a reality.

Elon Musk, the billionaire behind Tesla Motors and SpaceX, wants to revolutionise public transport. In 2017 he held an event at SpaceX's California headquarters showcasing the latest technology for what he believes is the future of intercity travel. An entirely new transport system, called Hyperloop.

What this is all about is advancing the state of transportation; trying new things that have never been done before that can make an incredible difference to peoples lives.

But is Hyperloop ready to usher in a new age of mass transit or is it just a billionaire's pipe dream?

In 1829 a competition was held to find the best locomotive engine for the Liverpool and Manchester Railway, in northern England. George Stephenson's Rocket won first prize, posting a top speed of 38km per hour. Widely credited as the world's first steam locomotive the Rocket transformed how people travelled between cities.

Almost two centuries on, Musk is hosting the modern-day equivalent of that competition and teams of engineers from around the world have come to Los Angeles to compete, head-to-head. The aim is to bring Hyperloop one step closer to reality.

But what exactly is Hyperloop?

Musk’s 700mph Hyperloop Would Be A Game-Changer For Travelers

CBS4's Vanessa Borge Reports

700MPH Hyperloop One Development

Hyperloop One, previously known as Hyperloop Technologies, is a company in Los Angeles, California, that is leading the effort to commercialize the Hyperloop for moving passengers and/or cargo at airline speeds at a fraction of the cost of air travel. The concept of Hyperloop transportation was introduced and named by Elon Musk in August 2013, although he is not involved with Hyperloop One.

The Hyperloop uses a linear electric motor to accelerate and decelerate an electromagnetically levitated pod through a low-pressure tube. The vehicle will glide silently for miles at speeds of up to 720 mph (1,000 km/h) with no turbulence. The system is designed to be entirely autonomous, quiet and on-demand (departures every 10–20 seconds) and, as it is built on columns or tunneled underground, eliminates the dangers of at-grade crossings and requires much smaller rights of way than high-speed rail or a highway. Hyperloop One has made substantive technical changes to Musk's initial proposal and chose not to pursue the San Francisco-to-Los Angeles route that Musk envisioned in his 2013 white paper.

The company has raised $160 million and successfully demonstrated its propulsion technology in May 2016 at its test site north of Las Vegas and is currently building DevLoop, its full-system test track. Hyperloop One expects to achieve first flight of the complete system (with levitation, propulsion, pod vehicle, control systems and low-pressure tube) early in 2017. Hyperloop One is developing passenger and cargo system routes in the United States, Finland, the United Arab Emirates, Russia and Switzerland. It is also in early talks with Indian government to build one in India. Its publicly stated goal is to deliver a fully operational Hyperloop system by 2020.

China announces plans to build a 2,500mph train to rival the Hyperloop

Read the original article:

WHY THIS MATTERS IN BRIEF: When people looked into the future they saw faster more efficient planes that made trains obsolete, but the tables look like they’re starting to turn.


As the race to be the first company to build the world’s first commercial Hyperloop network, a network of Mach 1.0 levitating trains that travel in vacuum tubes, hots up, with Hyperloop Transportation Technologies (HTT), Hyperloop One and Tesla all starting to break a sweat as they put their prototypes through their paces the state-owned China Aerospace Science and Technology Corporation (CASC) has claimed it plans to develop the next generation of trains, which can travel at speeds of up to 2,500mph. Or is that the next, next generation of trains? Anyway…

Liu Shiquan, a deputy general manager at CASC, said their scientists would be looking to develop the super-fast trains of the future that could “fly on the ground,” and they seem to have dubbed the initiative as “T-Flight.”
“The corporation has built rich experience and accumulated technological know-how through major projects, and it has the capabilities in simulation, modelling and experimentation for large-scale projects, as well as the world-class design capability for supersonic aircraft, all of which lay the important ground for the super-fast train project,” said Shiquan.

With connections to China’s defence ministry, CASC has already been involved in developing satellites, rockets and missiles, and now it looks as though plans are afoot to turn its attention on futuristic technology that’s closer to home.

China already has the largest network of high speed trains in the world, and recently they announced another $500 Billion in funding so it’s obvious that they’re keen to continue outstripping the competition.

CASC officials have said they will work with more than 20 other research institutes, both domestic and international, in the quest to create the proposed 2,500mph trains, and although the ‘flying train’ may be a way off becoming a reality another team of Chinese scientists recently announced plans to create a more down to Earth 600mph inter-city train built on the same Hyperloop concept we’re seeing across the water in the US. And as all of these technologies continue their relentless march to becoming reality you have to ask the question – in the future why would anyone want to bother getting on board a plane which increasingly looks like they’ll be the futuristic equivalent of taking the bus…

Does anyone else want to disrupt the airline and transportation industry? Take a ticket and stand in line.

Air-Levitation: A New Hyperloop Transport Method | Vik Parthiban | TEDxBeaconStreetSalon

The Hyperloop and the possibility of traveling at transonic speeds is gaining more momentum as companies are developing full-scale transport systems. As the co-founder and advisor for Texas Guadaloop, a research group turned startup from The University of Texas at Austin, Vik Parthiba is working with a team of engineers to build the first Hyperloop Transport Vehicle that uses air as a source of levitation and friction-less movement, making transportation more cost-effective and efficient. Guadaloop's design won the Innovation Award at the SpaceX-Hyperloop II in August 2017, and the team presented its updated designs at Competition III in July 2018. The team believes these enabling technologies will push the boundaries of transportation and bring the world closer together.

This talk was given at a TEDx event using the TED conference format but independently organized by a local community. Learn more at

Hyperloop Is Coming! Elon Musk's Plan for 760 mph Tube Travel to Begin Testing In 2016



Elon Musk's 'Hyperloop' was dismissed as a pipe dream that would never get off the ground.
But now the billionaire's plans to shoot capsules of passengers along a tube at around the speed of sound may launch as soon as next year.
Hyperloop Transportation Technologies has secured land for the first full-scale Hyperloop with a 2016 launch in the California town of Quay Valley.

These students are inventing the future of transportation

This team of Virginia Tech students is competing to design a passenger pod for use in a new, high-speed mass transit system called “Hyperloop, pitched by inventor-entrepreneur Elon Musk of SpaceX and Tesla.

The Hyperloop is a high-speed transportation system using a near-vacuum tube to propel a passenger-carrying pod at speeds potentially in excess of 700 miles per hour. The Virginia Tech team’s design incorporates magnets not only to levitate the pod, but also to provide braking power.

The Hyperloop at Virginia Tech team, Vhyper, scored big in Texas recently with a fourth place finish and a Technical Excellence Award against more than 120 teams representing many of the top universities in the world.

In addition to their finish, and invitation to test their design, the team also secured a cash prize from SpaceX, and the students’ presentations helped earn the team sponsorships from Cooley, ANSYS, and Performance Associates.
