According to The Union Railway Minister Suresh Prabhu Hyperloop is a futuristic idea and it would be a good project if people voted for it. Hyperloop one foundation urging the Indian citizens to vote for the first route to be built in India.
The Hyperloop One proposed five routes for India which are Bengaluru to Chennai, Mumbai to Chennai via Bengaluru, Bengaluru to Thiruvananthapuram, Mumbai to Delhi and Mumbai to Kolkata.
If the proposed plane comes true then people can reach Bengaluru from Chennai in 20 minutes and the 1,102 km Mumbai to Chennai via Bengaluru route in just 50 minutes.
Hyperloop is a futuristic and highly expensive technology so for now its just an fairy tale until its comes in life commercially.
What is Hyperloop?
Hyperloop is a new way to move people and things at airline speeds for the price of a bus ticket. A custom electric motor will be used to accelerate a levitated pod through a low pressure tube.
In 2013, Elon Musk first made his idea of the Hyperloop public. Musk is well known for founding SpaceX and Telsa. The Hyperloop will have similar technology to bullet trains that use magnets to propel themselves forward.
The Hyperloop is basically a capsule hovering in a low pressure tube above ground. This high speed system would allow people to travel 760 mph, as fast as the speed of sound.
The Hyperloop is proposed to work by using a vacuum tube with almost all the air removed. The pods would be pushed by a series of electromagnets or by electric motor. The lack of friction due to the low air pressure would allow it to travel so fast.
Actually only it need propulsion for about 5% of the track. So it get up to speed, could be 750 mph, and then it can glide for 100 miles without applying any other energy because the tube have little friction. The Hyperloop One will be completely self sufficient means placed solar panels along the track produce excess amounts of the energy that is required to run the system.
