Virgin explains how the Hyperloop will work | Digital Trends Spanish

The Virgin company is developing a state-of-the-art ultra-fast transportation system known as Hyperloop, which should “set the standard for 21st century travel,” according to the firm itself.

There is still much ignorance about how this innovative transport system will work. For the same reason, Virgin has published a video where it reveals some of the main details behind this mechanic.

According to the company, the passenger capsules that are part of the Hyperloop, will move suspended by magnetic levitation through a half-empty tube.

This greatly reduces any type of aerodynamic friction and allows you to reach speeds in excess of a thousand kilometers per hour with low power consumption.

This levitation motor that drives the Hyperloop promises to be ten times more efficient than any magnetic levitation train, and has been installed on top of the passenger modules.

Another important aspect is that the different sections that make up the convoy are not physically connected, this allows them to follow different routes individually.

According to the video: “As if it were a car taking an exit ramp, the capsules can separate, while the rest continue without deviating their course.”

Virgin also explains that the passenger capsules will have capacity for 28 passengers and will have business class seats equipped with wireless charging stations for mobile devices, as well as screens where passengers can consult information about the trip route, speed and time. arrival.

From Virgin they estimate that this transport system could start working in 2027.
