Abstract

AzLoop is team of over 100 students from multiple schools in the state of Arizona from Embry-Riddle University, Northern Arizona University, Arizona State University, and Thunderbird University. The four schools have come together to revolutionize the future of transportation. The team is working on a system called the Hyperloop, which is a concept of a pod that travels through a vacuum tube at a speed of 760 mph for SpaceX Hyperloop Pod Design Competition which would be held at the SpaceX Headquarters at Hawthorne, California. The team broke the design down into multiple sub teams based on brakes, levitation, propulsion, electrical, and manufacturing. A business section was also included to look for sponsors, help write proposals, manage the budget, and prepare outreach programs. Most of the manufacturing will be completed at ASU facilities and then brought to ERAU for testing.
