Dirk Ahlborn, CEO of HTT(Hyperloop Transportation Technology) visited KICT on June 16 and presented a seminar about Hyperloop technology. The title of the seminar was "Suggestions for the Future of High Speed Travel and Hyperloop Development in Korea."


Seminar introduced the basic idea of Hyperloop technology and discussed the possibility as future transportation system. Hyperloop is a new mode of transport that seeks to change the traditional paradigm by being both fast and inexpensive for people and goods. Hyperloop is also unique in that it is an open design concept, similar to Linux. Hyperloop consists of a low pressure tube with capsules that are transported at both low and high speeds throughout the length of the tube. The capsules are supported on a cushion of air, featuring pressurized air and aerodynamic lift. By placing solar panels on top of the tube, the Hyperloop can generate far in excess of the energy needed to operate.

 

Day before Ahlborn’s visit to KICT, HTT signed MOU with Korea Institute of Civil Engineering and Building (KICT).
