Guadaloop

A Hyperloop Powered by Air

 

Texas Guadaloop is a diverse group of men and women from The University of Texas at Austin disrupting modern transportation. We have designed, built, and tested an electrically propulsed Hyperloop pod that levitates utilizing air bearing technology. We iteratively develop our technology to keep innovating and advancing. Guadaloop's solution is an energy efficient and cost-effective alternative to how we move goods and people.

 

What if you could get 2 years of your life back?


Driving is a full time job (literally). Americans spend 350 hours on the road each year, equivalent to 2 years behind the wheel in their lifetime. If time is money, then hyperloop pays you to move faster. And who wants to waste 2 years of their life being miserable behind the wheel?

Besides wasting time, Americans consume 143.43 billion gallons of gasoline a year on average.

We are building a system that will allow you to travel from L.A to San Francisco or Austin to Dallas in 25 minutes without using any gasoline.

Sound impossible? 

 

how it works

We use air bearings to levitate and achieve very low friction within the Hyperloop tubing. Most pods use magnetic levitation, better known as MagLev, which is expensive and energy draining. 

What are air bearings? Think of an air hockey table reversed where air is being pumped out of the puck (our pod) instead of the table. We levitate on a thin gap of air allowing our pod to glide through the tubing. Air bearings are ideal for Hyperloop transportation because of their ability to create frictionless movement while decreasing drag.

We aim to revolutionize the way the world moves goods and people, creating a more sustainable solution to the increasing transportation needs. 

The best part? We've built and tested our pod. And it works.
