Current Plans

We are currently working on building a full-scale demonstrator here in Munich to test the technical as well as conceptual feasibility. Find more information about this project here.

OUR PLANS FOR THE FUTURE

Full
Scale
Demonstrator

Study the technical, economic and safety-related feasibility of an Hyperloop system.

Build a Hyperloop system demonstrator that is capable of safe human transport.

A full-scale technology demonstrator will be developed and built between 2020 and 2023. The demonstrator will consist of a 24-meter vacuum tube and a matching human-size pod.

The technical implementation is crucial for the development of a future Hyperloop system. Integration and functional tests are to be carried out on the demonstrator in order to identify problems at an early stage and research solutions that are technically and economically feasible.

In addition, experimental data will be collected in a way that can be used for concept analysis.

OUR PLANS FOR THE FUTURE

Concept
Analysis

Estimation of infrastructure and operation costs, ticket prices and travel demand.

Simulation on energy consumption, travel times, tube and pod driving factors.

Study of risk assessment, safety procedures and certifications.

Parallel to developing and testing the technology, models and analysis of the researched system and its large-scale implementation are necessary.

With these tools, various concepts are investigated for technical and economic feasibility and the system’s long-term capability is improved. In addition, potential security risks are analyzed and identified at an early stage and suitable measures are developed.

Finally, these investigations should result in proposals for suitable implementation options in the existing transport infrastructure.
