China’s hyperloop completes first test runs, pushing ahead in the race for ultra-fast land transport
Pod travels at 50km/h (31mph) through vacuum tube at Chinese facility to check critical components and prepare for future experiments. The project aims to develop superconducting maglev trains that can carry passengers at speeds of 1,000km/h or more.
An ultrahigh-speed test device for electromagnetic propulsion – the “electromagnetic sled” – recently set a world record in Jinan, Shandong province. The device can propel an object weighing one metric ton or above at a speed of 1,030 kilometers per hour.
Chinese researchers have successfully carried out a systematic test on a cutting-edge transportation system involving a high-speed maglev train running in a low vacuum pipeline in North China.
Construction will start on the test line for a low-vacuum maglev high-speed train with a speed of up to 1,000 kilometers per hour in Datong, North China’s Shanxi Province, as preparation work is done, the local government said.
The world’s first high-temperature superconducting high-speed maglev engineering prototype launched at Southwest Jiaotong University in Chengdu. The vehicle is expected to bring disruptive changes to rail transit industry with the application of low vacuum tube (tunnel) technology.
China aims to again take the lead in the new global race to make bullet trains travel even faster by harnessing the power of magnetic levitation.
Chinese company MAD Architects has collaborated with Hyperloop Transportation Technologies (HyperloopTT) on the development of an elevated, rapid transport system. MAD’s design demonstrates how the artificial
Arrivo, the upstart high-speed mass transit technology developer launched by a former co-founder of Hyperloop One, has inked a massive partnership with a Chinese state-owned infrastructure developer to help finance mobility projects around the world.
China is developing a super high-speed rail system that could reach speeds of up to 1,500 kilometers an hour, a move China is making to compete with Elon Musk’s Hyperloop, an expert said.
Researchers at China’s Southwest Jiaotong University recently built a prototype for a “super maglev,” a track that carries a train at incredibly high speed using magnetic levitation (maglev). What makes it so super? According to the researchers it’ll be capable of supporting speeds up to 1000 km/h (600 MPH).
The China Aerospace Science and Industrial Corporation (CASIC), a well-heeled newcomer to the mass transit industry, is betting big on its supersonic T-Flight ‘flying train’. If created as proposed, T-Flight will be faster, with more extensive routes.
