NORTH LAS VEGAS, NEVADA — Hyperloop One, formally known as Hyperloop Technologies, has successfully conducted the first open-air test of the super fast train’s propulsion system in North Las Vegas, Nevada on Wednesday.
“This is the year when we reach our Kitty Hawk moment, which in our terms means the demonstration of the full technology of Hyperloop working at scale, fully deployed with the four primary innovations that we are working on,” Reuters quoted Hyperloop One CEO Rob Lloyd as saying.
The Hyperloop, envisioned by Tesla and SpaceX founder Elon Musk, is a fully automated pod propelled by linear induction motors.
The compressor at the front of the pod sucks in air, pulling the pod forward. The compressed air is used in the air bearings underneath to levitate the pod.
The fully enclosed tunnel allows the pod to travel as fast as 700 miles in an ultra-low pressure environment and is unaffected by weather conditions. It can travel from Los Angeles to San Francisco in just 30 minutes.
