ATLAS 01 (2018)


After the first competition in January 2017, the second Delft Hyperloop team competed in the third instalment of the SpaceX Hyperloop Pod Competition. In the summer of 2018, Delft Hyperloop faced a new criterion compared to its predecessors: top speed. This requirement brought along many new challenges. With their technologically outstanding design, Delft Hyperloop managed to finish in second place. Due to an overheating of the temperature sensor on the motor controller, the pod came to a standstill after reaching a speed of 142 km/h. They created both a launcher (the smaller pod) as well as a passenger pod (the larger pod).
