Hyperloop Transportation System: A New Mode of Transportation
Abstract: The concept of high-speed travel in tubes has been around for decades and it was first reintroduce by Elon musk and a team of engineers from Space Exploration Technologies Corporation in August 2013, it is a combination of a Concorde, Rail gun and an Air hockey table. This idea seeks to change the traditional transportation by being both fast and inexpensive for people and goods where conventional modes of transportation tend to be either relatively slow, expensive or a combination of both. Hyperloop is a proposed mode of passenger and freight transportation that propels a pod (train) through a low-pressure tube at 750mph which is more efficient and environmental friendly, the pod would accelerate to a cruising speed gradually using a linear electric motor with solar power and glide above their track using passive magnetic levitation. Passengers may enter and exit Hyperloop at stations located either at the ends of the tube, or branches along the tube length. Hyperloop minimizes the carbon footprint globally and also inexpensive and extremely fast intercity travel would be widely accessible. If both people and goods can move more quickly and comparatively cheaply, an economic growth will be noticed as well.
