TransPod Inc. is a Canadian company dedicated to bringing the Hyperloop (a very high speed ground transportation concept developed by Elon Musk) to reality.
The Hyperloop technology has the potential to be one of the most disruptive technologies of the 21st century, similar to the impact of the steam powered train.
Currently performing route design between worldwide cities, testing will occur on a future test track to prepare for certification, manufacture and deployment. This will be the first step towards a commercially viable product expected within 3 to 5 years.
TransPod developed an academic collaboration with the University of Toronto’s Institute for Multidisciplinary Design and Innovation (IMDI) and corporate partnerships with REC Architecture. TransPod Inc. is currently in discussions with several industrial partners as well as Canadian Engineering Research Centers.
The company has been able to attract top engineering talent, a prominent advisory board and has created interest from Canada’s transportation and engineering community.
