Dubai: The Hyperloop team have arrived in Dubai, marking the first steps in building a high-speed transit system in the emirate.
The Los Angeles-based Hyperloop One are participating in an intensive 12-week programme as one of the leading contestants of The Dubai Future Accelerators.
Their project focusing on building a high-speed transit system consisting of “capsules” that can travel in a network of depressurised underwater vacuum tunnels, which allows them to travel at speeds as high as 1,200 km/h.
On the video sharing website YouTube, the Hyperloop team posted a one-minute video of the team all set to start their residency in Dubai.
The Dubai Future Accelerators program pairs top companies and cutting-edge entrepreneurs with government and corporate partners in Dubai to create breakthrough solutions on a city-wide, regional and global scale.
Accompanied with the video, the team also posted: “With a fully-functioning team on the ground in Dubai, Hyperloop One and its government entity partner, Dubai’s Roads and Transport Authority (RTA), will work together to develop a potential Hyperloop network for Dubai.” More info
