There were 30 teams taking part in this phase of the trial but only three teams took part in a test run this weekend: Delft from the Technical University of Delft in the Netherlands, MIT Hyperloop from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology and WARR, from the Technical University of Munich
Siemens PLM Software is a sponsor of UMD Loop, the University of Maryland's team of 50 undergraduate and graduate students who are competing in SpaceX's Hyperloop Competition Weekend.
Some of the winners include:
Delft University: Highest Overall Score; Design and Construction Award
Technical University of Munich (WARR Hyperloop): Fastest Pod Award
The next stage of the competition is set to take place this summer. The date has yet to be announced but we’ll be looking forward to the technological innovations created by these student teams that will be unveiled over the coming year.
I got to sit in the BadgerLoop pod! One day in the not too distant future, I’ll be able to hop on board and travel hundreds of miles in a Hyperloop pod designed by these outstanding engineering students.
