Georgia Institute of Technology | Georgia Tech Hyperloop Team
The Georgia Tech Hyperloop Team brings its diverse knowledge and experience base to creating an innovative Hyperloop pod design. The team is proposing a cutting-edge design, which employs a levitation system to reduce drag with the track as well as a lightweight composite frame to reduce the weight of the system.

In order to enable regional stations while not delaying pods travelling directly to the final destination we have studied loop bifurcations. We have thus proposed a lateral control mechanism, based on air bearings and a particular rail design, and a rail switching mechanism.

The pod consists of four high performance subsystems which are axle compressor, forty-four cylinder radial compressor, heating center, and turbine. These subsystems will coordinate with each other and provide excellent energy efficiency. In addition, the outer shell structure is specifically apposite for aerodynamics and safety requirements.

ISU Hyperloop proposes a Pod with a rib frame and a center-axis compressor to operate in a low pressure atmosphere. The front end features an air scoop to assist laminar flow. High capacity batteries mounted low in the structure support all on-board systems. Air skis assist in Pod levitation.
Istanbul Technical University | Sci-X
ITU Sci-X Hyperloop, or Scipherloop, relies on the strength of its design features which are tested and tried methods of available technologies. Our design philosophy values the innovation that is not based on a singular standout feature, but rather on a coherent Hyperloop system that functions best as a whole.

Keeping in view the design constraints & track conditions given, a pod-design has been theorized by the team, capable of reaching and crossing 1200kmph speed. With overall pod-weight calculated to be below 4 ton, and length, width and height, less than 14 ft, 4.5 ft, and 4.5 ft limit respectively, the pod design is very much within design constraints. With fuel cells powering the pod, the Propulsions planned to be by Electrostatic Repulsion phenomenon, & Air Cushions exploited for levitation and lateral controls, this team has brought up some unconventional amalgamation of technologies, to satisfy three major demands of Speed Requirement, Cost Expenses & Safety.
Keio University | Keio Alpha
Our pod architecture design for the competition consists of 5 subsystems: External Passive Propulsion (Maglev/Pusher), Active Levitation & Stability, Wheel Drive System. It could accommodate all kinds of emergency scenarios meanwhile maintaining as a very energy efficient system. The pod is designed to travel above 600 kph at partial-propel, partial-coast fashion able to operate at frequency of four minutes. Pods can communicate with the Tube and other pods for overall safety control. The overall Hyperloop Pod System from Keio Alpha is designed using System Engineering Approach.

The design of the Hyperloop Pod in this project is achieved by considering wheels for traction and levitation instead of Linear Induction motors. The advantages of using wheels with proper suspension instead of air bearings is mentioned in the project. However, it also considers a combination of retracting wheels and linear induction motors for traction and air bearings in its design. The emergency braking could be acheived using the Air Brakes.
