Hyperloop One, a company based in Los Angeles, California, is leading the effort to commercialize the future of transport for moving passengers and/or cargo at airline speeds at a fraction of the cost of air travel. Hyperloop One is designing, testing and building this new mode of transportation. The architecture is structured around a custom linear electric motor that accelerates and decelerates an electromagnetically levitated pod through a low-pressure tube. The vehicles will glide silently for miles at speeds of up to 300 m/s with no turbulence. The system is designed to be entirely autonomous, on-demand, energy efficient, quiet and safe—built on columns or tunneled underground, which eliminates the dangers of at-grade crossings and requires smaller rights of way than high-speed rail or a highway.
