3. Is there a new mode of
Yes, here comes the new innovation in
transportation that takes a step towards dynamic
future, framed by the great personality, a
successive entrepreneur, CEO and Co-founder of
TESLA and SpaceX “ELON MUSK”, ignited an
4. What is HYPERLOOP?
Hyperloop is a mode of passenger and goods
transportation that propels a capsule like vehicle
through a near vacuum tube at more than airline
Hyperloop is currently in development by a
number of companies, which could see
passenger travelling at 700 miles per hour in
5. The tube ismade of steel. Two tubes will be welded together
in a side by side configuration to allow the capsules to travel
Pylons are placed every 100 ft (30 m) to support the tube.
COMPONENTS OF HYPERLOOP:
6. Capsules are used to carry
passengers and goods.
These capsules are shaped
aerodynamically to reduce the drag.
Capsules consists of linear induction
motor under the hood, compressor at
the front and air bearings at the
Capsules are designed with latest
technologies and houses new form of
gadgets for the comfort.
7. Compressor is placed at the front
part of the capsule.
Compressor fans sucks the low
pressure air. After compression,
compressed air is supplied to the
air bearings and also at the rear
end of the capsule.
Air bearings are used as
suspension for the capsule.
Air bearings can also be used
to levitate the capsule with the
help of compressed air that
flows from compressor to air
8. Capsule houses linear induction
motor along the length to
accelerate and decelerate.
Linear stators are placed on the
capsules to transfer momentum
to the capsule via linear
6) POWER SOURCE-
The main resource for the power is
Solar arrays are placed along the
length of the tube.
Necessary battery arrangements are
made to store the energy to operate
at night and in cloudy weather
9. WORKING OF THE HYPERLOOP-
Hyperloop works on the principle of Magnetic
The capsules moves in the low pressure pylon
The low pressure air is sucked by the compressor,
converts it into high pressured air and ejects it through
the air bearings and at rear end nozzles to get extra
10. Progress of hyperloop
Hyperloop is half way
constructed and tested
for the route between
San Francisco and Los
The construction of
Hyperloop has started for
the route between Dubai
and Abu Dhabi.
11. Development of HyperloopinIndia-
Projects have been approved by the Indian Government for
constructing the Hyperloop for the routes between,
• Amravati to Vijayawada (estimated time 6-8 minutes to
• Mumbai to Chennai (estimated time 63 minutes)
• Bengaluru to Chennai (estimated time 30 minutes)
• Mumbai to Pune (estimated time 25 minutes)
Immune to weather.
Sustainably self- powering.
Resistant to Earthquakes.
Not disruptive to those along.
Saves Travelling time.
Movable space for passenger.
High speed might cause dizziness in some
Punctured tunnel could cause
Hyperloop transportation system can be used over
the conventional modes of transportation that are rail,
road, water and air.
At very high speed it provides better comfort and cost
is also low.
By reducing the pressure of the air in the tube which
reduces simple air drag and enables the capsule to
Even taking demerits into the account,Hyperloop still
proves to be a dynamic transportation mode for the
