THE FUTURE OF
TRANSPORTATION

SEMPER ACCELERANS
A student-initiative by Team Tachyon e.V. from Aachen, Germany

who ARE WE

Tachyon Hyperloop is a project by Team Tachyon e.V., a group of self-motivated and highly ambitious engineering enthusiasts who are deeply interested in the concept of Hyperloop. With various engineering disciplines converging into a single technological marvel, we as students aim to design and build functional prototypes of a Hyperloop Pod, explore the various feasible options and contribute to the development of this technology.

OUR VISION

Our vision is to build the future of transportation through the implementation and dissemination of Hyperloop and related technologies.

OUR PROJECTS

The first step towards our vision is to build a sub-scale prototype pod named "PROTON" to test the basic functionalities of a Hyperloop besides the levitation and vacuum tunnel. These include propulsion, control systems and high-speed braking amongst others. "PROTON" will be designed, manufactured and tested in early 2021 and is expected to reach a speed of 300 km/hr. Two other MiniPods (Series 1000 and Series 3000) will be built earlier to test and validate the various sub-systems independently.
