Delft Hyperloop VI presents...


Helios I is the new hyperloop design, created by Delft Hyperloop VI. Our team is very proud of what we have designed. With the Helios I we are taking 3 giant leaps to get closer to a fully scalable hyperloop prototype.

1. The Helios I will be a levitating pod, which uses Hybrid Electromagnetic Suspension (HEMS).

2. The Helios I will be hanging below our track instead of sitting on the track like a conventional train. The hanging design improves stability and makes way for potential High-Speed Lane Switching. We are the first student team to build a hanging hyperloop system.

3. The propulsion system which is designed for the Helios I will be an improved version of last years' design. It has an estimated efficiency of 80%. Furthermore, the designed system will be able to perform regenerative braking, which means we can regenerate energy by braking electrically. The system also contains an inhouse designed cooling system.
