The alpha design included a notional route running from the Los Angeles region to the San Francisco Bay Area, paralleling the Interstate 5 corridor for most of its length, so that preliminary economic analysis might be done on the concept.
In April 2017, 24 teams were selected to compete in Competition Weekend II held in August; WARR Hyperloop won top honors with a 323 kilometres per hour (201 mph) top speed in the mile-long test track.
More than 120 student engineering teams were selected from the preliminary design briefing presentations in November to submit final design packages in January 2016.
The designs were released to public view prior to the end of January 2016, and selected teams were invited to build hardware and compete in time trials, planned for mid-2016 at the time.
On 30 January 2016, Musk announced that, due to the level of sophistication of the pod designs as well as design issues with economical design approaches to building the test track, "given this level of enthusiasm, there is no question we are going to have another Hyperloop competition.".
In April 2017, 24 teams were selected to compete in Competition Weekend II.
The Hyperloop Pod Competition is a competition sponsored by Space X that is being held in 2015–2018 where a number of student and non-student teams are participating to design—and for some, build—a subscale prototype transport vehicle to demonstrate technical feasibility of various aspects of the Hyperloop concept.
The competitions have been open to participants globally, although all competitions and judging has occurred in the United States.without crashing)." Unlike the two test track competitions in 2017 however, all pods must be self-propelled.Space X will not provide an external pusher-vehicle as they did provide to facilitate student team pod testing in both the January and August 2017 competitions.The outline of the original Hyperloop concept was made public in August 2013 by the release of a preliminary—or alpha level—design document by Elon Musk, with substantial design assistance from an informal group of engineers at both Tesla Motors and Space X who worked on the conceptual foundation and modelling of Hyperloop.The preliminary design called for a 2.3–3.4-meter-diameter (90–132 in) steel tube, operating in partial vacuum (nearly airless), utilizing pressurized vehicle "pods" to carry passengers or cargo that would ride on an air cushion driven by linear induction motors and air compressors.Three explicit suspension types are called out: wheels, air bearings, and magnetic levitation.
