Elon Musk, the tech billionaire, has almost created a wonder by taking a tentative step towards introducing a prototype propulsion system. After changing its name from Hyperloop Technologies to Hyperloop One, the contraption is first tried in Nevada Desert and also takes in investment from the French National Railway Company.
The Hyperloop will actually bolt from the blue by thrusting pods at sky-scraping speed through a tube which would craft the journey from San Francisco to Los Angeles in just 30 mins. Though the Nevada Test was not a complete success, still a sled sped up to 116 mph in 1.1 seconds proves huge potential in the initiative. Having the power to unravel many intricate transportation issues throughout the world, it truly holds the potential to pave in the path of sheer perfection.
Finally, the team of Hyperloop One has selected 35 groups who will be in charge of digging out several regional proposals. Considered more than just a train or a pod in a tube, Hyperloop is all set to take transportation to a next level and work as the backbone of the future transportation network.
At the same time, Hyperloop technology has been adopted in India as well. A Memorandum of Understanding has been signed between Karnataka Urban Development Department and Maharashtra Government to perk up the connection flanked by both the states. To establish higher connectivity in both the cities, nothing could have been better than this! Identifying potential routes between two cities, the hyperloop mode is conferred to expose new links that will egg on the connectivity yet more. This special technology will make a vehicle float above the track at the top speed of 1,000 km per hour. The magnetic levitation used in the technology would drill out the prospective routes to spice up the conjunction.
Apart from Maharashtra and Karnataka, the leeway of hyperloop technology will be studied for the state of Andhra Pradesh as well, where the company would work in partnership and rally round in navigating the regulatory requirements. When the fundamental study aims to evaluate the advantages of hyperloop technology, the state government will also be informed about the feasibility of the project, so that all the necessary steps are taken immediately.
At the same time, Mumbai and Pune, the cities which are considered as the most populous cities in Maharashtra also require such technology that will mete out an optimal route with high density, thereby alleviating the transition issue to a significant extent. By trimming down the travel time to 20 minutes, a hyperloop course will pick up the connectivity between the urban regions of Mumbai and Pune. This move is actually expected to transform these two cities into India’s largest mega polis.
The hyperloop track will improve connectivity and convenience to facilitate transportation within the major cities. Once the project is executed, the entire set-up is highly anticipated to form the largest connected metropolitan zone by hooking up more than 70 million people across Andhra Pradesh. Karnataka and Maharashtra.
