Our innovative solution is based on an upper-sided magnet-electromagnet levitation system, which takes advantage of permanent magnets force and improves efficiency. The pod structure is made of a ferromagnetic alloy so it can hover with control action. Our propulsion system is based on an electric compressor-turbine.

The Pod will be hovering over a cushion of air created by the pressure difference. It will contain a compressor that will suck the air in front of the pod creating a near vacuum environment that will allow the pod to move with negligible drag. The pod will also contain a set of retractable wheels which will be used until the pod reaches the required speed to levitate.

WSU HyperShock’s pod is unique as it relies on readily available technology to deliver an exemplary end product Passenger safety and the capability to go into full production as soon as the technology demonstrator proves its mettle in the test track are our primary focus.
