Hyperloop One, previously known as Hyperloop Technologies, is a company in Los Angeles, California, that is working to commercialize the Hyperloop for moving passengers and/or cargo at airline speeds at a fraction of the cost of air travel. The concept of Hyperloop transportation was introduced and named by Elon Musk in August 2013, although he is not involved with Hyperloop One.

The Hyperloop uses a linear electric motor to accelerate and decelerate an electromagnetically levitated pod through a low-pressure tube. The vehicle will glide silently for miles at speeds up to 670 mph (1080km/h) with no turbulence. The system is designed to be entirely autonomous, quiet, direct-to-destination, and on-demand. Additionally, as Hyperloop is built on columns or tunneled underground, it eliminates the dangers of at-grade crossings and requires much smaller rights of way than high-speed rail or a highway. Hyperloop One has made substantive technical changes to Musk's initial proposal and chose not to pursue the San Francisco-to-Los Angeles route that Musk envisioned in his 2013 white paper.

The company has raised $160 million and demonstrated a form of propulsion technology in May 2016 at its test site north of Las Vegas Hyperloop One has completed a 500m Development Loop (DevLoop) in North Las Vegas and just after midnight on May 12, 2017, the company held its first full-scale Hyperloop test, becoming the first company in the world to test a full-scale Hyperloop. The test combined Hyperloop components including vacuum, propulsion, levitation, sled, control systems, tube, and structures.

Hyperloop One is currently developing passenger and cargo system routes in the United States, Finland, Sweden, the Netherlands, and the United Arab Emirates. It is also in early talks with Indian government to build one in India. Its publicly stated goal is to deliver a fully operational Hyperloop system by 2021.

History

The idea for Hyperloop One emerged from a conversation between Elon Musk and Silicon Valley investor Shervin Pishevar, who were flying to Cuba in January 2013 on a humanitarian mission. Pishevar asked Musk to elaborate on his Hyperloop idea, which the industrialist had been mulling for some time. Pishevar suggested using it for cargo, an idea Musk hadn’t considered, but he did say he was considering open-sourcing the concept because he was too busy running SpaceX and Tesla. Pishevar asked Musk if he could build it and Musk said, “yes”.

In August 2013, Musk released the Hyperloop Alpha white paper, generating widespread attention and enthusiasm. In the months that followed Pishevar incorporated Hyperloop Technologies and recruited the first board members including David O. Sacks, Jim Messina and Joe Lonsdale. Pishevar also recruited a cofounder, a former SpaceX engineer named Brogan Bambrogan. Hyperloop Technologies set up shop in Bambrogan’s garage in L.A. in November 2014. By January 2015 Hyperloop Tech had grown big enough to move into its current campus in the Los Angeles Arts District and had raised $9 million in venture capital from Pishevar's Sherpa Capital and investors such as Formation 8 and Zhen Fund. FORBES magazine put Hyperloop Tech on its February 2015 cover, landing the startup lots of fresh recruits and new investor interest. In June 2015, Pishevar recruited former Cisco president Rob Lloyd as an investor and, eventually, its CEO.

Between June 2015 and December 2015, the company continued to hire engineers and expand its downtown campus (now up to 75,000 square feet). In December 2015, Hyperloop One announced it would hold an open-air propulsion test at a new Test and Safety Site in Nevada. At the time, the company disclosed it had raised $37 million in financing to date and was currently completing a Series B round of $80m.

The propulsion open-air test, or POAT, was successfully held on May 9, 2016, in Nevada. The POAT sled accelerated to 134 mph (216km/h) in 2.3 seconds, representing a crucial proof of concept. Hyperloop One also launched its Hyperloop One Global Challenge to find the locations, develop and construct the world’s first Hyperloop networks.

At the time Hyperloop One announced it had closed on its $80 million round and secured partnerships with global engineering and design firms such as AECOM, SYSTRA, Arup, Deutsche Bahn, General Electric, and Bjarke Ingels.

In June 2016 the company announced a memorandum of understanding with the Summa Group and the Russian Government to construct a Hyperloop in Moscow and has since completed two feasibility studies – one in Moscow and one in the Far East.

In late July 2016, Hyperloop One opened a 100,000 sq ft (9,300 m2) tooling and machine shop called Metalworks in North Las Vegas, Nev., where it fabricates the parts for its nearby test track called Devloop.

In August 2016, Hyperloop One announced a deal with the world's third largest ports operator, DP World, to develop a cargo offloader system at DP World's flagship port of Jebel Ali in Dubai. Hyperloop One also broke ground on DevLoop, the world's first full-scale Hyperloop test track.

In October, Hyperloop One announced it had raised another $50 million, led by an investment from DP World. and welcomed Brent Callinicos, former Uber CFO, as CFO as COO.

On November 8, 2016, Hyperloop One announced it had signed a deal with Dubai’s Roads and Transport Authority (RTA) to conduct a number of feasibility studies on potential passenger and cargo Hyperloop routes in the United Arab Emirates. Hyperloop One also released its first system designs in collaboration with the Bjarke Ingels Group.

At the start of 2017, Hyperloop One announced the 35 semifinalists routes (spread over 17 countries) in the Hyperloop One Global Challenge. Hyperloop One held a series of events showcasing the semifinalists, Vision for India in February, Vision for America in April and Vision for Europe in June.

Just after midnight on May 12, 2017, Hyperloop One made history with its first full-scale Hyperloop test, becoming the first company in the world to test a full-scale Hyperloop. The system-wide test integrated Hyperloop components including vacuum, propulsion, levitation, sled, control systems, tube, and structures.

On July 12, 2017, the company revealed images of its first generation pod prototype, which will be used at the DevLoop test site in Nevada to test aerodynamics.

On August 2, 2017, Hyperloop One successfully tested its XP-1 passenger pod, reaching speeds of up to 192 mph (309 km/h). It traveled for just over 980 ft (300 m) before the brakes kicked in and it rolled to a stop.

Funding

Hyperloop One has raised $160 million to date. Its investors include Sherpa Capital, Formation 8, 137 Ventures, DP World, Khosla Ventures, Caspian Venture Capital, Fast Digital, Western Technology Investment, Zhen Fund, GE Ventures, and SNCF.

Management

The CEO of Hyperloop One is Rob Lloyd, former Cisco President of Sales and Development. The co-founder and President of Engineering is Josh Giegel. The chief financial advisor is Brent Callinicos, the former CFO of Uber Technologies.

The board of directors include co-founder Shervin Pishevar, Joe Lonsdale, Justin Fishner-Wolfson, Jim Messina, Peter Diamandis, Sultan Ahmed Bin Sulayem, Ziyavudin Magomedov, Rob Lloyd, and Emily White as a board observer and strategic adviser.

Lawsuits

In July 2016, the CTO and co-founder Brogan BamBrogan left the company, later filing a lawsuit with three other former employees alleging breach of fiduciary duty and misuse of corporate resources. On July 19, 2016, Hyperloop One filed a countersuit against the four former employees, alleging they staged a failed coup of the company, in the process breaching agreements around fiduciary duty, non-competes, proprietary information and non-disparagement, as well as intentional interference with contractual relations. On November 18, 2016, both parties agreed to settle the lawsuit. Terms were confidential and not disclosed. BamBrogan and other former Hyperloop One and SpaceX employees went on to found Arrivo, a competing hyperloop company.

Auf dem schmalen Pfad zu neuen Wegen: Die Entdeckung der Geschwindigkeit (Der Hyperloop 1) (German Edition)
Bei dem Versuch eine Personentransportkapsel in einer teil vakuumierten Röhre auf eine höhere Geschwindigkeit zu beschleunigen bricht auf der Testanlage zwischen Los Angeles und San Francisco das Chaos aus. Der Milliardär Louis Vern reagiert sofort und entscheidet sich dazu die gesamte Testanlage zu erwerben und das Projekt neu aufzubauen. Ein Professor vom Caltech und eine Handvoll brillanter Ingenieure vom MIT und deren Entwicklungsteams, versuchen den Kindheitstraum von Louis Vern Wirklichkeit werden zu lassen. Dabei beschreiten sie einen schmalen Pfad zwischen kreativen Ideen, wissenschaftlichen Vorgehensweisen und Niederlagen und müssen zudem Probleme aus dem Weg räumen die nicht immer mit ihrer eigenen Arbeit zu tun haben, sondern durch die Medien, Konkurrenten begründet oder der Physik gegeben sind.
