VIDEO - Moving ahead with the European Hyperloop Center preparations
We’re moving ahead with the European Hyperloop Center (EHC) at full speed. As its realization is becoming more and more concrete and we’re closing in on starting the actual construction, we’d like to take you along in the EHC’s preparations.
After Hardt’s initiation, the EHC has now become part of the public-private Hyperloop Development Program. In this Road to the European Hyperloop Center series both Hardt, the EHC foundation and its partners will take you along in all that is happening. Think prototyping, low-pressure testing, construction and much more, starting of with the first two today; this introduction video and the first episode on ensuring smooth travels at hyperloop speeds.
Road to the European Hyperloop Center – Introduction
We are often asked whether it will be a bumpy ride for a passenger travelling aboard a hyperloop vehicle that passes irregular infrastructure at such high speeds.
In our preparations for the European Hyperloop Center, we’ve built a test setup of the system that ensures a smooth ride while travelling at hyperloop speeds. Below, in the first episode of the Road to the European Hyperloop Center series we explain how this is done.
