Ohio State University | Buckeye Fury
The Buckeye Fury is a student project that utilizes air injectors to overcome the Kantrowitz Limit, allowing the pod to move in a low pressure tube with little effort. Injectors allow the pod to drop weight, cost, and power consumption. The pod is designed to be safe, scalable, and efficient.
Oral Roberts | Codex
Codex’s innovative pod achieves superior performance by its unique design and advanced technology. The pod structure utilizes cutting edge composites to be strong, lightweight, aerodynamic and safe. Permanent magnet levitation provides frictionless movement and powerful acceleration and braking capabilities. Scalable design ensures a high performance realistic implementation of the Hyperloop.
St. Olaf + Carleton | St. Olaf Carleton Hyperloop Student Team
The STOC Machine Pod design relies most heavily on three subsystems: structure, levitation, and propulsion. Our structure has been designed to minimize drag, while maximizing stability and rigidity. An air bearing system, utilizing stored compressed air provides levitation. Finally, a linear induction motor maintains our desired cruise speed.
Politehnica University of Bucharest | “POLI” Hyperloop Team
We are designing a fully electrical pod that includes levitation (suspension), traction and braking mechanisms into only one electromagnetic system. We want to take advantage of linear motor properties and at the same time optimize the losses that can result in the rails and coils. The entire pod will be controlled from a central unit that will act as a supervisor.
Purdue University | Purdue Hyperloop Team
The Purdue Hyperloop Design Team’s pod is a low-mass, low-power pod with a carbon fiber structure that uses air bearings for levitation, Halbach arrays for attitude control, permanent magnets and friction brakes for braking, compressed air tanks for thrust and for drag mitigation, and that operates at a very low pressure.
Queen’s University, Kingston | Queen’s Hyperloop
Queen’s Hyperloop has come together to devise a safe, functional and practical hyperloop pod. The magnetically levitated pod focuses on its levitation system, redundant failsafe braking, accurate telemetry, ergonomic design and much more. We are pleased to be involved in the creation of a new era of mass transit.
