It hosted the first test Hyperloop One of the vacuum transport system
It turns out that the tests were more May 12, but information about it only decided to publish now, summing up all the results and studying the nuances. CEO Shervin Pishavar Encouraged by the results, and notes that Hyperloop One of the first failed test transportation system completely, as long as competitors are experiencing only a few knots of their developments.
"During the test, - informs The Verge, - chassis capsules inside the test tube chamber, wherein vacuum has been previously created, the speed reached 112 km per hour."
Now the specialists of the company are transferred to the next stage of the test, in which the capsule is already planning to accelerate to 400 kilometers per hour. Ideally capsules speed should be about three times higher, but until the end of the test is still very far. The more so because they are carried out on a small segment of the test, the construction of which was completed recently. Probably, when the test route lengthen and finalize the design of the capsule, in Hyperloop One will increase and the speed of its movement.
The current prototype capsule, presented by the company, looks pretty cool and impressive, with a length of 8, 5 meters. Probably, soon it was with his help as part of the testing will be transported and cargo.
Successful trials are encouraging, not only developers of Hyperloop One, but also for potential investors. Now the company's management is actively developing contacts with the authorities around the world that, after completion of all the tests is not to spend time on the signing of contracts and other papers, but instead immediately begin construction.
