TUM Hyperloop Team Learns PCB Design on Way to Setting World Speed Record
Andy Shaughnessy, Design007 Magazine | 14th Februrary, 2019
At AltiumLive Munich, I met with Tobias Bobrzik, a Technical University of Munich student and member of the TUM Hyperloop team. Hyperloop is an experimental, open-source mode of high-speed rail transportation created by a joint team of Tesla and SpaceX technologists. In 2015, Tesla’s Elon Musk announced the Hyperloop Pod Competition, which he hopes will pave the way for super-high-speed rail in the future.

The pod designed and built by the WARR team hit 467km/h, beating its record last year by almost 50% as it took a trophy at the competition for the third consecutive time.
The power performance was increased from 50kW kilowatts to 240kW, or 320hp and it accelerates five times faster than an airplane during take-off with a maximum speed of 600km/h.
