  • Hyperloop One

The hyperloop system is created to send pods carrying cargo or people through low-pressure tubes for long distances at passenger jet speeds.

At the end of August, SpaceX will host its second Hyperloop Pod design competition, which sees teams including university research groups facing off with prototype pods of their own making on SpaceX's test track.

Other startups, including Shervin Pishevar's Hyperloop One and Dirk Ahlborn's Hyperloop Transportation Technologies picked up the gauntlet and have been working to build out the tech from a technical perspective, and to pave the way for its commercialization.

On 29 July, the pod traveled almost the full distance of the 500m DevLoop track in the Nevada desert.

The Hyperloop One XP-1, the company's first-generation pod, accelerated for 300 meters and glided above the track using magnetic levitation before braking and coming to a gradual stop.

The pod went at 192mph for a distance of 1,433 feet.

On July 29, 2017, Hyperloop One completed phase 2, after its pod traveled almost the full distance of the 500-metre DevLoop track in the Nevada desert and achieved record test speeds in a tube depressurized down to the equivalent of air at 200,000 feet above sea level.

The futuristic transit system is also being pursued by Hyperloop One's ousted cofounder, Brogan BamBrogan.

"We're excited about the prospects and the reception we've received from governments around the world to help solve their mass transportation and infrastructure challenges". All components of the system were tested, including the electric motor, controls and power electronics, custom magnetic levitation and guidance, pod suspension and vacuum system.

Hyperloop One CEO Rob Lloyd said: "We've proven that our technology works, and we're now ready to enter into discussions with partners, customers and governments around the world about the full commercialisation of our Hyperloop technology". Only a handful of teams would have attempted something so audacious while far less could have achieved it.

"Through tireless preparation, dedication and hard work, we successfully completed Phase 1, proving that Hyperloop One technology works and that Hyperloop is real". The next arm of the competition is focused on speed, and the stakes seem higher now that it looks like Musk will be developing his own Hyperloop tech to turn his vision of fast, efficient long-distance underground travel into reality.
