A New Transportation Era to Rule the Globe Soon: Hyperloop One Test Successful
On Wednesday, July 12, 2017, Hyperloop One disclosed that its first test on the vehicle has been successful. The company has developed a uniquely designed vehicle that can travel efficiently in a vacuum environment. The test was executed earlier this year and through its execution, the company gained controlled levitation and propulsion of the exclusive Hyperloop One vehicle at 70 meters per hour (mph) running on a 315 foot track specially made for the test in the Nevada Desert. Surprisingly, the vehicle marked the acceleration of around 2G while performing for its momentary 5.3 second on the track particularly constructed for the test run.
Taking this test success into consideration, there has been a comparison between the Hyperloop One achievement and the first test flight of Wright Brothers’ years ago in December 1903. The first flight test was as momentary as the Hyperloop test and is still documented as one of the significant events that took place during the evolution and development of operated flight. But, the process took numerous years of dedication and experiments before airplane innovation was developed and refined to move forward from the test phase.
Just like the flight test, Hyperloop One’s successful vehicle test also signifies a small but important step towards a potentially enormous development leap that levitates transportation. The company has been quick enough to notice that remarkable history wasn’t made by a particular event or an incident, but by the dedicated individuals who were responsible to lead the event to its effective conclusion. The startup was supported by approximately 200 machinists, fabricators, welders, and engineers, who worked hard together towards a common objective.
Hyperloop will now commence a broader test of various systems at its DevLoop site. This site uses nearly 1,000 feet of linear motor within a 1,640 elongated tube.
