The European Commission has released the European Union Sustainable and Smart Mobility Strategy and hyperloop is explicitly identified as a game-changing mobility technology.
“Let it happen somewhere else. Let it become successful for at least a 10 km distance somewhere abroad”. Maharashtra Deputy Chief Minister Ajit Pawar said on Friday that the state government will consider pursuing Hyperloop only after it is shown to be practicable in other countries.
Tunneling and bridging bring additional costs to a project that, in Ohio, will mostly consist of standard, flat rails built across the region. When dealing with hyperloop speeds, that path also has to be as straight as can be, which could prevent the rail from winding through Appalachian terrain to reach its destination.
During his visit, His Royal Highness Mohammed bin Salman bin Abdulaziz, Crown Prince and Minister of Defense of the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia, unveiled the Vision 2030 Hyperloop Pod with Virgin Hyperloop One. Hyperloop One has discussed a number of potential routes with the Saudi government, says chief technology officer.
The New York Times: Virgin Hyperloop One is testing a system that would put passengers in pods hurtling through vacuum tubes. Other companies are moving ahead with similar plans.
The first phase of the 15-km Hyperloop track in Pune, from Balewadi to Gahunje, will serve as the testing track for passenger movement.
Virgin Hyperloop cargo network proposed in Dubai to deliver goods ‘anywhere in world’ within 48 hours
A revolutionary new transport network that can move goods anywhere in the world in just 48 hours is being proposed for Dubai.
BMW Designworks, the automaker’s creative consultancy, partnered with Virgin Hyperloop One to give its Dubai hyperloop a full-scale prototype interior for UAE Innovation Month. The result is something you might find in a first-class airplane cabin, albeit without windows.
Hyperloop Transportation Technologies (HTT) and the rival company Hyperloop One announced they have signed agreements with regional planning authorities in Ohio and Illinois to fund a feasibility study for what could be the first US interstate Hyperloop route.
The Hyperloop Poland team adapted its route from a 2012 feasibility study for an $8 billion high-speed rail project that was suspended by the federal government in 2014. That bullet train’s speed-to-cost ratio was deemed “dissatisfying,” but Hyperloop offers speeds 2-3 times faster than high-speed rail and can be built for two-thirds of the cost while fitting into narrower rights of way that trains cannot.
