Good news! The Hyperloop, which was Elon Musk’s project among many others and which was taken over by the Los Angeles-based company, has obtained new funding from Thornton Tomasetti, a New York company. The Hyperloop company was working on the development of very high-speed tube transport systems.
Thornton Tomasetti is a leading global science and engineering consulting firm providing specialist safety, security and risk management services.
An investment to achieve a vision
The investment, of an undisclosed amount, follows the successful completion of a risk and security assessment of HyperloopTT conducted by Thornton Tomasetti.
The company was looking to develop new measures on safety and security systems in the hyperloop to deal with accidents and terrorist attacks.
The firm has carried out detailed simulations in the event that such an event would occur and would then affect the system.
It also demonstrated how risk mitigation measures could be implemented. The results will feed into future hyperloop design plans.
Pawel Woelke, Project Manager at Thornton Tomasetti, said: “As the hyperloop is a completely new system, the technical challenges require innovative thinking. »
A breakthrough that Tesla Magazine notes because it makes Elon Musk’s project more and more concrete.
This investment project comes to accompany several other countries which wish to give a chance to the idea of Elon Musk as for the development of a new means of transport in the future.
The future implementation of the Hyperloop will bring with it a future for jobs and growth for countries wishing to install it: it is indeed a growth factor for workers from the manufacturing sector and a good way to interest employees from aerospace, rail, automotive and of course electric vehicles.
We also discover the future plans proposed by the company which offers new very refined and futuristic designs with the appearance on these photos of customizable controls for the user.
So we can wonder if this future means of transport will live up to our expectations and will therefore facilitate our travels compared to current systems.
Do not hesitate to consult our other articles on the Hyperloop to learn more about its functioning as well as the progress of this project.
