IIT Madras Students Develop Hyperloop Pod Prototype For International Contest

Students of IIT Madras have developed the prototype of a Hyperloop pod – a futuristic high-speed mode of long-distance transport – as part of their submit at a global contest in Spain. A team of 40 students worked online and offline amid the Covid pandemic to improvise on the model they had developed two years ago for another competition in the US. Aiming to achieve a speed of 1,000 km per hour, the students worked towards making the pod solar-powered, cost-effective and sustainable. NDTV speaks to the Avishkar team which is behind this project.
