OVERVIEW
Team Hyperlynx will design, fabricate, and assemble a
pod to win the wheeled vehicle category of the SpaceX
Hyperloop Competition.

We intend to win by reaching the egress area as fast
as possible without crashing. Our design is tailored
to achieve this goal while featuring scalable, real-world
Hyperloop applications such as a modular payload.

Design Description

TOP LEVEL DESIGN
The Hyperlynx Pod will be an
aluminum framed, rail-guided
wheeled vehicle. An ultralight foam
shell shapes the ten-foot long, two-foot
max profile, three-hundred pound pod.

A 12VDC battery powers networked
sensors and actuators, hydraulic disk
brakes, and real-time control
systems. A modular payload is
featured accommodating multiple
passenger/cargo configurations

DIMENSIONS / MASS
10.5 ft

1.7 ft

2.2 ft

The pod will have a tip-to-tail length of 10.5 ft. The largest cross
section occupies 2.77 ft2 with a maximum height of 2.2 ft and width of
1.7 ft. The pod encloses and interfaces to the central I-beam,
traveling 1 inch above the aluminum sub-track.

Pod Mass by
Subsystem

Pod subsystems are designed to be as lightweight as possible. Several
methods realize this goal: lean manufacturing techniques reduce part
count and complexity, ultralight composite materials create structural
support at minimum weight cost, and system positioning leverages
natural strength points of the assembly.

Total Mass: 300 lbs

STABILITY
20 custom machined wheels will hug the rail to keep the
pod laterally and longitudinally stable. The aluminum hub and
polyurethane tread will enclose a ceramic bearing rated up to
50,000 rpm. The design of these wheels was inspired by
technology found on high speed roller coasters.
Four vertical wheels on the flange and one horizontal wheel
on the web will be mounted to an aluminum assembly then
attached to the frame. Four of these assemblies, two
mounted in the front and two in the rear will ensure the pod
safely traverses the tube while traveling at high speeds.
