Delft Hyperloop VI

Meet the people of DH06

Arrow Down

With a team of 37 highly motivated students from various disciplines of the Delft University of Technology, we will participate in the European Hyperloop Week (EHW). Our goal is to win all awards at the EHW and prove the technical and commercial viability of the Hyperloop concept. 

 
Management

The Team Captain holds the final responsibility for the project, he is the face of DH06 and also manages the human resources side of the team. The Project Manager manages all resources of the team and takes care of the team’s logistics. “Do we have the time and money for this project? And how can we bring the team and the pod to the EHW?” are typical Project Manager questions. The Chief Engineer is responsible for the final product of this year and ensures that all subsystems are integrated well, resulting in the best pod at the European Hyperloop Week!

Business

The business department consists of Partnerships Managers and Public Relations Managers. They are responsible for the image and appearance towards the public and our partners. Partnerships managers are in contact with all the current and new partners of Delft Hyperloop. In addition they are responsible for the incoming funds of the team. Public relations managers educate the public about the hyperloop concept. They also manage the press, events and social media of the team. They aim to reach as many people as possible, so the hyperloop will be seen as a reality!

Scalability

The scalability department consists of full-scale and design engineers. Together they contribute to the development of an optimized hyperloop system by solving a wide range of current hyperloop challenges. The Full-Scale engineers research the technical and socio-economic challenges of the hyperloop. In collaboration with partners, they work towards extensive research reports that contribute to a scalable hyperloop system. The Design engineers work on visualizing the hyperloop concept by creating innovative designs of the hyperloop system and looking at the customer journey while taking sustainable aspects in mind.

Propulsion

The propulsion department is responsible for developing the motor of the hyperloop pod. The propulsion engineers focus on developing the linear motor, which uses magnetic force to propel the pod to high speeds. The linear motor is the most efficient type of engine for the hyperloop and allows the hyperloop to be a scalable and sustainable system.

Sense & Control

The Sense & Control department takes care of providing power and control to the pod. In order to determine the pod’s behaviour and allow for autonomous and safe decision-making, they ensure that all kinds of data are being measured, processed, and acted upon accordingly. This includes sensors in each subsystem, as well as monitoring ambient quantities and deriving a localisation system.

Mechanical

The Mechanical department consists of mechanical and aerospace engineers. They work on the development of a prototype system to compete in the European Hyperloop Week. The mechanical engineer focus on designing the chassis, brakes, aeroshell and the track on which the pod is going to operate. Choices are made in close collaboration with the other engineering departments and partners in order to make a well-integrated and realistic design.
