Italian students gunning to work on Musk's train of future

Group devise suspension system for Hyperloop train

Italian students gunning to work on Musk's train of future

Rome, January 11 - A suspension system devised by a group of Italian students may be part of the the Hyperloop 'train of the future' being created by businessman Elon Musk. The seven students from the University of Pisa and the Scuola Superiore Sant'Anna institute have proposed a suspension system to protect passengers from vibrations. It has been selected to take part at Design Weekend later this month at Austin's Texas A&M University to identify the best ideas for the conceptual transport system. Musk's Hyperloop envisages pressurized capsules riding on an air cushion driven by motors and air compressors. The aim is for the train to be able to travel at over 1,000 kilometres per hour, connecting cities as far apart as Rome and Milan in 35 minutes. "Our group was selected from the 1,200 who presented ideas from all over the world," Emanuele Raffaele, one of the group members, told ANSA. "We are very satisfied". The other members of the group, aged 23 to 26, are Luca Cesaretti, Lorenzo Andrea Parrotta, Tommaso Sartor, Giorgio Valsecchi, Sandro Okutuga and Giulio De Simone. They are hoping to be among the groups who will test their systems in a 1:2 scale model that will be set up in the summer in cylinder that is some 1.5 kilometres long. The visibility could also attract other investors interested in their work. Musk, the Tesla Motors and SpaceX CEO who has South African, American and Canadian citizenship, estimates his system would cost about $6 Billion to build to connect Los Angeles and San Francisco.
