This future technology is about hyperloop technology











WHATI S THE HYPERLOOP?

Angeles to San Francisco in 30 minutes. - half the time a plane takes. It is essentially a long tube to which the air has been removed to create a vacuum. For safety reasons, Hyperloop tunnels need escape hatches in case of fire. The tube is suspended from the ground to protect it from weather and earthquakes. There are now a number of companies competing to bring technology to life, including Elon Musk himself, Hyperloop Transportation Technologies and Virgin Hyperloop One.The creator of Motors and SpaceX, Elon Musk, has been talking for a while about a high-speed Hyperloop train that would theoretically move people through a narrow tube at a speed of 760 miles per hour, enough to carry people from San Francisco to Los Angeles in 30 minutes. . And now this dream has taken another step towards reality, since Hyperloop Technologies announced today that it has raised $ 80 million in funds. The company, which is changing its name to Hyperloop One, is currently building a test track for technology outside of Las Vegas. Today he performs his first outdoor test as part of a plan to reinvent transport.

Musk first launched the concept of Hyperloop in 2013, when he talked about how he could transport people in "capsules" through an 11-foot-diameter tube that was almost empty. The tube would be constructed in a way to eliminate its air pressure (at a level of 100 Pascals, or 1/1000 of the earth's air pressure), allowing a train to pass at full speed in an almost frictionless manner. The train or capsule could be lifted using magnetic levitation technology powered by an electric motor.

The Hyperloop concept has been explicitly "open source" by Musk and SpaceX, and others have been encouraged to take ideas and develop them further. To that end, some companies have been formed, and several interdisciplinary teams led by students are working to advance technology. [8] SpaceX built a subscale track approximately 1 mile long (1.6 km) for its capsule design competition at its headquarters in Hawthorne, California.



   The basic concept of Hyperloop:


  • Capsules that transport people through a metal tube
  • Capacity for 28 people
  • 40 total capsules at peak time activity
  • Almost a cross between the delivery systems of pneumatic tubes in old buildings and a Japanese bullet train
  • The capsules float on air cushions like hockey pucks
  • The tube rises over 25,000 concrete towers.


Hyperloop technology that will transport people in 'levitation capsules' at 760 mph (1,223 km / h) could transform the way we travel.

But not only passengers will feel the benefits.

The architect Foster and Partners has designed conceptual capsules that can move the load at these incredible speeds at the same cost as existing systems and with less pollution.

The London-based firm has partnered with Richard Branson's Virgin Hyperloop One, one of the two consortiums that develop the technology.

"The movement of people and goods is part of the vital infrastructure that unites all our cities, and cities are the future of our society," said Norman Foster, founder of Foster and Partners.

"As Hyperloop seeks to reinvent urban transport and logistics, the city of the future is closer than we think," he continued.

"It is important that we develop an integrated sustainable vision of infrastructure that allows us to evolve and adapt our existing cities, and design new ones that are in harmony with nature and our precious planet."
