Ryerson International Hyperloop is a special projects team with the intent of developing a fully functioning Hyperloop Pod. The team believes in driving revolutionary change within the transportation industry, with the greater cause of saving time, and to help make Canadian cities more accessible. The Pod was designed using a systematic approach with modularity and reliability as major foci. Its design featured an innovative, student researched and developed linear induction based MagDrive, and MagLev systems for propulsion and levitation. The braking system featured a fail-safe pneumatic deployment system to facilitate braking at high speeds as well as a wireless “Keep Alive” command. The onboard hyperionics is entirely composed of student researched and developed components which provides an expansive communication range and the ability to transmit real time data back to the mission control through all states and stages of the Pod’s run.
