of tu delft for the space x pod competition

For more than a hundred years, there has not been a revolution in transportation. It's time for something new. In 2013, Elon Musk introduced a solution: a high-speed transportation system using near vacuum tubes in which pressurized vehicles travel. Due to the low air resistance in the tube, the vehicle can travel at a speed of more than 1,000 km/h, and at the same time it is more energy-efficient, more environmentally friendly and more convenient than an airplane.
From 2015-2020 there has been an annual Hyperloop Pod competition sponsored by SpaceX. The Atlas04 was created for the 2020 Hyperloop competition.

High performance electric motors


By eliminating air and rolling resistances, the Hyperloop could travel at speeds of more than 1000 km/h. This is faster than most regular passenger airplanes.


By having a Hyperloop pod depart every minute, the waiting time is decreased to a minimum. The long waiting lines are history.


The Hyperloop pods travel extremely efficient, which means the energy use is decreased to a minimum. This energy is gained from renewable sources such as the sun.

high safety

Safety matters. That is why the Hyperloop pods are equipped with many safety features, such as safety sensors, emergency lighting, and an AED.


Because the Hyperloop pods use a magnetic levitation system, it will not experience any shocks or bumps due to irregularities of the track.
