The Pod

The XPod

Our pod sets itself apart from the other designs through our approach to achieving extremely fast acceleration using magnetic levitation technology. We are aiming to build a feasible prototype, which includes components that can later be installed in the Hyperloop. For example, the so-called "Halbach Array", as shown in the figure below, is used in the levitation system. We will optimize our pod for maximum speed, to hopefully earn us a spot on top of the podium.
