Below are the topics that our Research Team focus on for 2018/19

Failure Modes: Attempting to model how successful the Hyperloop project can be, the Failure Modes team works backwards by researching possible reasons for the failure of such a project outside the realm of engineering.

Cargo: This year we are researching the potential impact that the Hyperloop could have for the global cargo, transport and trucking industries. Hyperloop technologies have the potential to make the industries more economically efficient and begin to positively improve their carbon footprints.

Transport Integration: The Transport Integration team is responsible for researching integrated ticketing systems within varying modes as well as the potential application of the system to Hyperloop. Research includes investigating mobility as a service and evaluating the benefit of such systems on a multi city scale.

Sustainability: The Sustainability team looks into the possible environmental, social and economic impacts of the Hyperloop, for a sustainable future. Current research is being directed into the impact that the Hyperloop may have on social sustanability through integrated land-use and transport planning which is essential for sustainable cities.

Tunnelling: The focus of the Tunnelling team this year is assessing all the associated costs with Hyperloop tunnel infrastructure, and evaluating its economic feasibility in the short, medium and long term.
