CHENNAI (Metro Rail News): Indian Institute of Technology Madras is regulating India’s first Global Hyperloop Pod Competition in a bid to raise awareness and enthusiasm regarding Hyperloop in India, according to a statement from the institution on Wednesday.
The competition is open globally and in July 2020 the final round would be held in the IIT-Madras campus. Called the ‘Indian Hyperloop Pod Competition,’ the objective is to promote student teams in India along with abroad to develop a Hyperloop Pod and compete to make the fastest, most innovative & efficient design and prototype of the related technologies in the range, as per the statement.
Hyperloop is the fifth mode of transportation a high-speed train that travels in a near-vacuum tube. The decreased air resistance provides the capsule in the tube to give speeds of more than one thousand kmph conveying people or objects at high-speed where being very effective.
This competition is for all the engineering colleges over the world to ideate, design and executes their ideas for the Hyperloop Pods. Moreover, can be obtained from the event website – https://ihpc2020.web.app/’. 1000 kmph Decreased air resistance provides the capsule in the tube to reach speeds more than 1000 kmph.
