A competition helps to the creation of the futuristic hyperloop transportation system was obtained from engineering-students from Munich.

The hyperloop idea includes the passengers in pods, which at very high speeds down the sealed Tunnel.

The team pod hit 457km/h (290mph) on a 1.2 km (0.75 km) “test track”.

You lead by the SpaceX spaceflight company, the competition focuses on the refinement of the technologies, the support of super-fast transport system.

The victory is the third in a row for the Technical University of Munich team.

The competition student-teams from universities all over the world gather to put up in California, their prototype pods on the heart and kidneys.

The idea for hyperloop, which would see a sleeve to reduce speed through a closed tunnel, friction, or air resistance, which has been going on for decades, and was drawn up by technology entrepreneur Elon Musk in the year 2012.

He suggested that the pods could travel along the system of tunnels at speeds in excess of 1000 km/h.

Critics expressed concerns about the potential costs for the construction of a large hyperloop, and whether your technical requirements can be met.

Mr Musk’s SpaceX company has a series of competitions that drive the development of the concept.

In the last round of the competition, the Munich team, Warr Hyperloop, overtaken rival capsules that can it miles create speeds of 88mph (Delft University) and 55 hours (EPF-beat loop, from Switzerland), his own record, speed of 323km/h, in the second competition, in September 2017.

A change from previous competitions, the peppers tested had this time, self-driving end.

Previously, the sleeves could be a pusher on a SpaceX-built “” vehicle, which helped them travel and the test-tube.

Elon Musk is back in the competition and spent time talking with the teams and the observation of the test.

“This is really the first opportunity for the creation of a new means of transport,” said he to the threshold, The news site.

“This is really what this competition – things that could radically change the cities and the way people change.”
