Hyperloop UC Prototype Achieves Magnetic Levitation
The search for industrial and commercial application for magnetic levitation has gained ground in research and tests. Hyperloop, University of Cincinnati has achieved their goal by levitating their prototype to a quarter of an inch.
There will be a hyperloop competition on magnetic levitation sponsored by its founder Elon Musk of Tesla. The challenge is for the application of magnetic levitation to a tube-based passenger system transport that would eventually travel at the speed of sound. The prototype's final testing will be on January 27 to 29, 2017. The testing will have their prototype pods inserted in a tube a mile long near at SpaceX, Hawthorne, California.
There are more than 1200 teams worldwide participating in this event. Hyperloop UC is being spearheaded by UC graduate Dhaval Shiyani. Only 30 teams had advanced so far and Dhaval's group is one of them. They will be a force to reckon with on January test runs, Shiyani said.
In an article from Science Daily, it mentioned that if the project goes successfully and implemented to the core, it will be a new chapter for commuter travel as travel time will be drastically minimized. In a travel time from Cincinnati to Chicago will only take about 30 minutes at 700 mph speed of the tubular carriage transport system.
The proud team of Hyperloop, University of Cincinnati has the reason to celebrate stating that the success of the Hyperloop UC signals that they are doing things right in the University College of Engineering and Applied Science, said Teik C. Lim, UC CEAS Dean and Herman Schneider, professor of Mechanical Engineering.
Hyperloops Team was also invited to the Texas A & M University presentation of their innovations. Participating in this presentation are 120 teams from all over the world. Out of the 120 teams, 30 were chosen for the finals on January, 2017. This Innovation of Magnetic Levitation will usher the future of transportation.
