Zero-emission modular transportation re-envisioned.
Hyperloop is a proposed "5th mode of transportation" named and made famous by Elon Musk. The concept utilizes specially designed pods that will travel at near Mach speeds in a sealed tube at low pressure. A more in depth look at the concept can be found in the Hyperloop Whitepaper.
NYU Hyperloop is designing a system that will not only enable high-speed frictionless travel, but will do so with a model that will safely develop associated technologies, driven by economic interests. An early stage model of the Hyperloop model that encourages logistics companies to move freight will be attractive because product can be moved quickly and cheaply, while reducing greenhouse gas emissions.
