SpaceX Hyperloop Pod Competition


Our engineering team from BITS is designing and manufacturing a light weight scaled down pod prototype, named OrcaPod. The pod will reach up to speeds of 460 kmph, and will be tested on SpaceX’s track in Summer 2017.The Orca Pod is Team Hyperloop India’s entry to the SpaceX Hyperloop Pod Design Competition. It promises to be India’s first indigenously built safe, feasible, Hyperloop pod prototype designed to be tested and raced on the Hyperloop test track built by SpaceX in Hawthorne, California. Our design has cleared SpaceX’s Preliminary Review stage and will represent the country at the Final Design Stage in February.
