Nagpur: Country will soon commute in Hyperloop technology-based transportation system, as Indian railways are collaborating with IIT Madras to develop make-in-India new transport system.
The technology-based transportation system will significantly reduce carbon emission and revolutionize the transportation system.
“Indian railways give a big boost to Make-In-India initiative by collaborating with IIT Madras to develop a futuristic Hyperloop technology-based Transportation System which will significantly reduce carbon emission and revolutionize the transportation system,” the Railway said in a tweet.
According to the Railways Ministry, “the Ministry of Railways has thus been looking for potential partners and domain experts for joint collaborative working on development of this emerging and evolving concept for passenger and cargo transportation.” The Ministry of Railways was informed that “Avishkar Hyperloop,” a team of 70 students formed by IIT Madras in 2017, has been applying scalability and frugal engineering concepts for development of a Hyperloop-based transportation system with the goal of making India proud by showcasing its technologies to the world.”
The proposed facility would house the world’s largest Hyperloop Vacuum Tube, which would serve as a test bed for Indian railways’ future Hyperloop research. Elon Musk and SpaceX promoted the concept, and other companies or organisations have been encouraged to collaborate and develop the technology.
