University of Edinburgh Hyperloop team relies on RS Components' support
Global distributor RS Components is supporting the University of Edinburgh’s efforts to design and build technology for the revolutionary Hyperloop transportation system of the future.

The HypED technical team comprises more than 50 students that have a wide range of backgrounds and expertise with degrees gained at the University of Edinburgh. The team was initially formed in 2015 to enter into the SpaceX Hyperloop Design Weekend competition, which was held in Texas in January 2016 and where the team won the ‘Subsystem Excellence Technical Award’.

For the new competition, HypED will comprise three sub-teams that will build the key elements of the prototype pod, including: static elements such as chassis, shell and aerodynamics; dynamic elements, such as levitation, propulsion and braking; and ‘smart’ elements, such as batteries, control electronics and software.

In addition to the technical team, HypED has also set up a business team to study the feasibility of a Hyperloop system in the UK. The team is proposing a London-Birmingham–Manchester–Edinburgh route, connecting major centres of economic and social activity along the ‘spine’ of the country, and is presenting its proposal at the Hyperloop One Global Challenge event in Amsterdam this week.
