Simon Whistler delves into the Hyperloop idea, its complex history, innovative companies like HyperloopTT, TransPod, EuroTube, and China's ambitious plans. Will this game-changing transportation technology redefine our world?
The Hyperloop test track in Ottobrunn near Munich is now complete. The transportation system, envisioning passenger capsules traveling at approximately 850 kilometers per hour through a near-vacuum tube, takes a crucial step forward in its research and development.
Romanian inventor Henri Coanda invented and tested the first vacuum tube transport test (what is now called the Hyperloop ); the first successful test with the vacuum tube was carried out in Bucharest, near CET SUD, in June 1971, using a pipe of 200 meters long and one meter diameter, which established the world record for the World's First Hyperloop , according to the Academy Of World Records.
A team of engineers at IIT Madras and a startup have come together to build India’s first cargo hyperloop system. A test tract for the full stack technology is being planned to be operational by June, 2023.
The Phase-I work will take place on the 50-meter test track at IIT Madras. The subsequent work to achieve a 10-km track will be completed in Phase-II and -III involving a consortium of other industry partners from the automotive, construction and engineering sectors.
Like Hyperloop Belarus, which is focused on promoting hyperloop technology in the region of the Intermarium, Hyperloop Denmark arose as a new resource that aims to push hyperloop forward in…
Nord Stream – a notorious Russian gas pipeline project that was staunchly opposed by the US – became the boogeyman of Central and Eastern Europe because of the obvious security…
The United States Senate passed the $1.2 trillion bipartisan Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act which includes provisions that will support further development and deployment of hyperloop.
Just 10 days after launching a fundraising campaign on investment platform Seedrs, Hyper Poland has achieved its €451,000 investment target. This funding will be dedicated to the continued testing and development of the next generation of high-speed railways.
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.
