WARR Hyperloop’s pod reached a record-breaking speed of 467 kilometers per hour in the SpaceX 3rd hyperloop competition.
A team of students from the Technical University of Munich (TUM) was one of two European university groups to win top honors in SpaceX Hyperloop Pod Competition. The competition was about promoting the development of the Hyperloop high-speed transport system. They achieved a top speed of 467 km/h and their high-speed capsule was around 50% faster than the last year. MGM COMPRO supplied the winning team with propulsion systems and motor controllers.
It was a hyperloop hat trick by a team of German engineering students at the third annual SpaceX pod competition on Sunday. WARR Hyperloop from the Technical University of Munich took home the top prize — and set a new record — with their self-propelled pod reaching a top speed of 284 mph (457 km/h). – theverge.com
Students presented their WARR Hyperloop prototype for the competition in Californa on the 14th of June 2018. SpaceX’s Hyperloop Pod Competition challenges university teams to build the best capsule for its high-speed trasportation system.
