“A levitating rail-free pod design for SpaceX’s Hyperloop Global Competition”

As seen on

Levitation

The pod is equipped with a hybrid system of permanent magnet and electromagnet units being able to control lift, so it can hover from the top of the tube.

Say goodbye to magnetic repulsion, it’s time for attraction!

Aerodynamics

Propulsion is obtained by expansion of the air with a nozzle located at the rear of the pod achieving speeds up to 1000 kilometers per hour. The turbine recovers energy from the flow, allowing a more efficient journey.

Structure

The structure has been designed in reinforced carbon fiber. Furthermore, structural ribs are used to optimize the stress distribution across the cabin due to the pressure loading and thus ensure optimum material use in the passenger cabin.

A clean and ergonomic cabin layout offers the possibility to fit up to 30 passengers.

Control

A system of multiple and redundant sensors with state-of-the-art technologies are used to achieve a fault-tolerant system offering a smooth journey.
