Hyperloop is going to change why and how we travel


What is the Hyperloop?

An Hyperloop is a mode of transportation for travelers on a public or private conveyance and consignment transportation, and it is the innovation in the transportation world, an open-source vacuum tube train. Hyperloop is a compact and sealed tube through which a pod might also tour free of air resistance or adhesion conveying people or objects at high speed; therefore, its time-efficient.


The Hyperloop Alpha concept was first posted in August 2013, examined on the route from the Los Angeles region to the San Francisco Bay Area.

The Hyperloop first proposed by the entrepreneur Elon Musk, the hyperloop machine uses moving electromagnetic fields to levitate and propel cars inside a low-pressure tube. Extremely excessive speeds can be finished, because of ultra-low aerodynamic drag at the vehicle.

Hyperloop Technology Key Segments:

  • Tube: Tube is a tunnel or an encapsulated pathway or track, where hyperloop pod travels. The machine is consisting of vacuum pressure to resist the air on capsule motion. These tubes produced from steel. Containers placed either below or above the ground.
  • Propulsion:The hyperloop vehicle and accelerate gradually via electric propulsion through a low-pressure tube. A propulsion system includes the source of mechanical power and a propulsor.
  • Capsule: The Hyperloop concept operates by sending specially designed "capsules" or "pods" through a steel tube maintained at a partial vacuum.
  • Safety & Security Concerns:

The benefits, along with minimal cost, excessive speed, eco-friendly, and efficient energy required, attract investors. However, safety & protection concerns of passengers were anticipated to hinder the market development.


  • High speed
  • Environmentally friendly
  • Travelling at a low cost
  • Safety & security concerns
  • Decongestion of traffic
  • Time-efficient


  • The top speed of the capsule may cause dizziness to visit passengers due to vibration.
  • The installation cost of the system in place is very high.
  • The high vacuum tube production and installation requires top technical skills.
  • Risky to maintain.
  • People cannot move freely as limited space on the train.
