The Future of Transport


The University of Waterloo's Hyperloop Pod Competition Team

Click above for the live stream! You'll also be able to watch the archived video after the event.

Since it's inception, our team has come a long way - competing in Competition I, SpaceX Design Week, and numerous tech and industry events, all in anticipation of making our way to Hawthorne, California for SpaceX Competition II.

Through our continual growth, we've celebrated many successes, and we're hoping to continue this growth with our fully redesigned Goose II Pod, which will be unveiled on July 21st, 2017. Check back here for updates soon!

 
 

 

THE CHALLENGE

This project is the response by a group of dedicated University of Waterloo students to the SpaceX Hyperloop pod challenge to independently design and build a prototype Hyperloop pod to be tested on a one-mile test track in Hawthorne, California in January 2017.

The first Prototype


Welcome to GOOSE I: our fully re-designed Hyperloop pod prototype -faster and lighter than ever.

Welcome to GOOSE I: our fully re-designed Hyperloop pod prototype -faster and lighter than ever.

Our prototype design uses a minimalist style while retaining strict safety considerations. By selecting this design philosophy, a reduction in the manufacturing complexity, cost and mass is achieved, while simultaneously permitting an effective travel speed and increased reliability. Our attempt to build the pod with off-the-shelf components throughout the system allows for it to be scalable to full size and to reduce cost. Furthermore, the flexibility inherent in such a modular design allows for additional functionality and aesthetic flourishes to be included without significantly impacting the pod’s core functions.

Enter GOOSE X: our newly re-designed concept pod that imagines the passenger vehicle of the future.

The GOOSE X is our conceptual Hyperloop passenger vehicle design which illustrates what a Hyperloop vehicle will one day look like, once the technology is ready for passenger use. This full-scale design won't be built for many more years, but is directly derived from the pod we are building for the SpaceX pod competition.
