Rochester Institute of Technology | RIT Imaging Team
We designed two subsystems: one reports on the tube-surface integrity, the other is a communications system. Our imaging-based method will scan the tube’s inner walls at speeds that can be integrated into normal operations. Our proposed communications system is inspired by current optical communications models adapted to the Hyperloop’s unique environment.

Our pod is designed to be effective, safe, efficient and easy to manufacture. At high speeds our pod coasts on air bearings; for lower speeds it uses a modular system of regenerative brakes and low friction takeoff/landing wheels. Our pod design is easily adaptable to various tube designs.
Rutgers University | Rutgers School of Engineering
The Rutgers SOE team’s Hyperloop pod features a sleek outer mold, magnetic levitation system, and air-powered braking system. Levitation is accomplished through sets of spinning magnets maintaining a constant force against the aluminum track, and braking by expanding the pod’s surface area and leveraging the resulting deceleration from

The Hyperloop Deployable Wheel System is a safe, space efficient solution for the pod. Using an innovative hybrid actuator system to perform extension and retraction at low speeds and emergency scenarios, the deployable wheels system will play a key role in the safe and smooth operation of the pod.
Robert Morris University | 3 P’s and a Pod
Design an emergency braking system for pods at high speeds when traditional friction breaks are impractical, through the use of air pressure build up. This pressure will be caused by an airbag like plug that will rapidly deploy around the pod. By allowing minimal airflow past the airbag, the pressure in the front of the airbag will be built up enough to significantly slow down the pod.
RVR & JC College of Engineering | Invictus
Our Pod is designed with the main intention of safety and reliability of passengers/cargo with the capability to travel far distances. It runs on levitation and linear magnetic braking. All the trivial details are considered for the design and it is versatile and adaptable to changes with considerable cost limits.
