Valentia is the following challenge, it will be the next Hyperloop UPV prototype, ready to participate in the Hyperloop Pod Competition III in summer 2018. This prototype will integrate even more powerful and outstanding Hyperloop technologies, with the objective of being the fastest Pod in the competition. Every component in Valentia has been designed to achieve the highest power to weight ratio, with a total control and balance between them.
Valentia innovates both technologically and with its exterior design, which will be different from any other Pod in the competition and will be revealed very soon.
THE FUTURE CONCEPT
Conceptual prototype, which obtained the Best Design Concept award and Best Propulsion/Compression Subsystem technical award in the Hyperloop Design Weekend, competition organized by SpaceX in January 2015. This Hyperloop model has been designed conceptually as the end result, it will be implemented after tests are conducted with different prototypes throughout the years.
Atlantic II is the prototype which was developed for the Hyperloop Pod Competition II, organized by SpaceX in August 2017. The Atlantic II earned a place among the top 10 teams globally, with more than 300 universities participating. SpaceX confirmed that the Hyperloop technologies implemented on the prototype where exceptional, naming it the most powerful Pod in the competition.
