In June 2015, when Elon Musk announced a contest for a new mode of travel, the Hyperloop, we decided to accept his challenge. We were aware that we were attempting the impossible. One thousand two hundred teams from all over the world entered the competition. Many of them could count on support from sponsors and wealthy universities. We could only count on our own ideas and enthusiasm to come up with innovative solutions. Presently our international and multidisciplinary team of experts works on the Hyperloop-inspired SMART LOGISTICS PLATFORM.
Hyperloop is a new means of transport that allows people or goods to move at very high speeds based on the concept of sustainable transport. Think of it as a cross between a train and an airplane. It will enable travel between Krakow and Gdansk in 35 minutes, traveling near the speed of sound. The pod moves in a special tube, in which air pressure is as low as it is at an altitude of 10 km, which greatly reduces air resistance. It travels without contact with the tunnel using magnetic levitation and air bearings. Hyperloop is not science fiction. Traveling is a necessity and an essential element of life, and travel modes are becoming increasingly complex and personalized. We spend an increasing amount of time moving around and thanks to the Hyperloop we can become more efficient in the use of our most precious commodity - time.
In a globalized world, passenger and goods transportation market is rapidly growing, but the current infrastructure is not able to meet the increasing demand for transportation services. With the rapid development of a global trade, the number of goods that need to be transported will continue to grow. Our SMART LOGISTICS PLATFORM consists of autonomous, fully electric vehicles and infrastructure suitable for distances from only 5 km. It will help to shift cargo flows that are currently carried by combustion engine powered trucks to a sustainable electrically propelled and safe electromagnetic system.
We have managed to solve many problems that created technological barriers to the creation of the Hyperloop.Questions and answers
We are a registered company with headquarters in Warsaw, Poland. We have the business development team and the technical team consisting of over 20 engineers. In Summer 2017 our student team built the first Polish Hyperloop vehicle prototype, which took part in the finals of the SpaceX Pod Competition II in California. In August 2017 we completed an acceleration program with HardGamma Ventures and the Polish Post. We are the most technologically advanced Hyperloop company in Europe and the only one in the world to use this technology to solve the problems in the logistics sector.meet our team
