HyperloopTT builds its system around reducing friction and increasing efficiency.
Our Hyperloop system consists of large tubes that will primarily be built on pylons, with some ground level and underground segments as needed. The elevated system results in lower the cost of land acquisition, makes it impervious to weather conditions, resilient to earthquakes, eliminates the possibility of collision with road traffic, and will provide eco-opportunities.
Hyperloop replicates high altitudes in a low pressure environment inside the tube system by removing most of the air with vacuum pumps, which drastically reduces the drag forces.
In addition, it is automated with advanced technologies that only require monitoring from humans. Automation improves efficiency and reliability by enabling system elements to be in constant communication with each other and with operation control centers for near real-time response plans.
In partnership with MAD architects, our design combined with self-sustaining energy strategies results in lower construction and operational costs, translating into a profitable system with low ticket price projections. Utilizing a combination of existing and new technologies, our Hyperloop system will be both high-speed and resource-efficient, with a safe and comfortable experience for passengers and cargo.
A full-scale testing facility opened in the summer of 2019 in Toulouse, France. Trials involving the first human passengers are slated to begin in 2020.
