Hyperloop is a proposed mode of passenger transportation that propels a pod-like vehicle through a near-vacuum tube or low-pressure tubes at airline speeds. The pods accelerate to cruising speed gradually using a linear electric motor and glide above their track using passive magnetic levitation or air bearings. The tubes can go above ground on columns or underground, eliminate the dangers of grade crossings.
It is a new way to move people and things at airline speeds for the price of a bus ticket. It’s on-demand, energy-efficient and safe. Think: broadband for transportation.It is hoped that the system will be highly energy-efficient, quiet and autonomous.
The world is ready for a new mode of transportation that will change the way we live. We’re in the business of selling time, the most precious resource there is. When cities become metro stops, regions will flourish.
The concept of high-speed travel in tubes has been around for decades, but there has been a somewhat resurgence in interest in tube transportation systems since being reintroduced, using updated technologies, after 2012, incorporating reduced-pressure tubes in which pressurized capsules ride on an air cushion driven by linear induction motors and air compressors.
Hyperloop One was incorporated in 2014 and has built a team of 200 engineers, technicians, welders and machinists to build the world’s first commercial Hyperloop system.
Got US$160 million in form of investement
HYPERLOOP ONE will first build this for UAE to go from DUBAI to ABU DHABI in twelve minutes.
