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 can merge with nature through…
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.
It's the first deal to be signed in China and could have massive ramifications for the industry.
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.
