During the SpaceX Hyperloop Pod Competition in California, Delft Hyperloop II had to deal with several setbacks, causing the team working day and night in order to succeed all the tests regarding safety. Nevertheless, due to the strong teamwork of every member, the team secured the 2nd place. The test week and finals where nerve-racking and without each other and the help of our partners, a fantastic result like a 2nd place would have been unfeasible.
Wheels are often depicted as one of the oldest inventions of human kind. And though this is true, wheels have not been static throughout the years but have been evolving continuously since their conception.
All old team members warn you for it, and it is really true: a year working in a DREAM team goes by faster than you’d think. As of writing, we are already halfway our project year. Currently, we are at the start of our production phase, and we realise how much work still needs to be done. Therefore, it would really help our team to work in the most efficient and effective way possible. Our partner Brunel has helped us to achieve this by giving us a Scrum training.
For the 2018 competition, Delft Hyperloop teamed up with industrial service provider ERIKS, which is now one of our main technical partners. It’s a B2B company that brings innovative solutions to a variety of industries such as nanotech, automotive, solar energy, aviation and even space exploration.
A brand-new Delft Hyperloop team has come together: since September, 37 students from the TU Delft are working on the design and production of the Delft Hyperloop II. With this vehicle, the team will participate in the SpaceX competition of summer 2018.
