Hyperloop One Is Now Virgin Hyperloop One
Virgin Hyperloop One, previously known as Hyperloop One or Hyperloop Technologies is a company in Los Angeles, California, that is working to commercialize the Hyperloop for moving passengers and/or cargo at airline speeds at a fraction of the cost of air travel. The concept of Hyperloop transportation was introduced and named by Elon Musk in August 2013, although he is not involved with Hyperloop One or any other company developing Hyperloop. Hyperloop will reinvent transportation to eliminate the barriers of distance and time.
The Hyperloop uses a linear electric motor to accelerate and decelerate an electromagnetically levitated pod through a low-pressure tube. The vehicle will glide silently for miles at speeds up to 670 mph (1080 km/h) with no turbulence. The system is designed to be entirely autonomous, quiet, direct-to-destination, and on-demand. Additionally, as Hyperloop is built on columns or tunnelled underground, it eliminates the dangers of at-grade crossings and requires much smaller rights of way than high-speed rail or a highway. Hyperloop One has made substantive technical changes to Musk’s initial proposal and chose not to pursue the San Francisco-to-Los Angeles route that Musk envisioned in his 2013 white paper.
Hyperloop One is currently developing passenger and cargo system routes in the United States, Canada, Finland, Sweden, the Netherlands, and the United Arab Emirates. It is also in early talks with the Indian government to build one in India. Its publicly stated goal is to deliver a fully operational Hyperloop system by 2021.
Hyperloop One and the Virgin Group develop a strategic partnership to form Virgin Hyperloop One. With this partnership, Richard Branson joined the board of directors and Richard Branson and Virgin Group invested in Hyperloop One. The global strategic partnership announced on October 12, 2017, will focus on passenger and mixed-use cargo service in addition to the creation of a new passenger division.
