SpaceX Hyperloop Pod Competition
Uitgedaagd door Elon Musk bouwden 27 teams uit de hele wereld het afgelopen jaar ‘pods’ voor het futuristische transportconcept Hyperloop, waarbij mensen en goederen met hoge snelheid door buizen reizen.
Het Hyperloop-team deelde in de week van 23 januari-30 januari 2017 hun ervaringen via Instagram.
Good morning! We're Marleen & Merel from the Delft Hyperloop Team and this is the start of our #TheWeekOf! We're competing in the SpaceX Hyperloop Pod Competition and this week it's time for the long-awaited finals at the SpaceX headquarters in Los Angeles! After designing, building and testing the very first Hyperloop prototype, we're extremely excited to show the world what our 'pod' is capable of! #TUDelft @marleenvandekerkhof @mereltoussaint
Here it is: the one and only Delft Hyperloop pod! This picture was taken at our workshop at the Paardenmarkt in Delft. Right now our pod is in Los Angeles for the lasts tests to be fully prepared for the finals of the Hyperloop Pod Competition this weekend! #TheWeekOf #TUDelft #delfthyperloop #breakapod
In the Delft Hyperloop pod are 8 luxury and ergonomic seats for passengers, but since all the prototypes for the competition are half scaled, our 'passengers' are dummys resembling persons aged 4/5 years. Our dummys travel in style with special Delft Hyperloop clothing! #delfthyperloop #TheWeekOf #TUDelft
The undercarriage of the Delft Hyperloop pod is one of the unique parts of our design. We use permanent magnets for the elegantly integrated levitation, stabilization and braking system. This way the pod will come to a safe stop, even when there's a power failure! #delfthyperloop #TheWeekOf #TUDelft
Good morning from California! This is Maikel, one of the software engineers of Delft Hyperloop. Today at 15:00 California time (24:00 Dutch time) we will perform our final run! The livestream and opening start one hour before, link is in our bio! #TUDelft #TheWeekOf #delfthyperloop #hyperloop #spacex
