Dubai Eyes Hyperloop-style System


Dubai eyes Hyperloop-style system

And now, Dubai is seeking someone “to shape the future of transportation” by designing a similar transport system that would take people from Dubai to the emirate of Fujairah — on the opposite side of the Arabian peninsula — in just 10 minutes.
The 102-mile (165 km) journey currently takes more than two hours and experts say the cost of building Hyperloop pipes could ultimately be cheaper than building conventional high speed trains.
The Dubai Future Foundation said it will host the “Build Earth Live” event in September, with engineering and scientific teams from across the globe presenting their designs to judges over a 48-hour period.
“Dubai is hosting this global event as part of the vision of Vice President and Prime Minister and Ruler of Dubai, His Highness Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, to make the UAE and Dubai a global platform for innovative minds to come together to create futuristic solutions on issues of relevance to humanity,” said Mohammed Al Gergawi, Vice Chairman of the Board of Trustees and Managing Director of Dubai Future Foundation.

Crossrail and Hyperloop: The future of transport 06:58
“This contest is a great opportunity to explore innovative ideas in the smart transportation sector.”
According to the official WAM news agency, Al Gergawi said the development of future transportation solutions “will effectively change the way people handle their daily tasks, and the way they work and commute, especially considering that the world is witnessing a technical revolution involving 3D printing, self-driving vehicles, and robotics.”
And this would eventually lead to massive global economic growth, he added.
The company behind the pipeline system, Hyperloop One, has ambitions to create high-speed freight and passenger networks across the globe. In June, it signed an agreement to explore adding “high capacity passenger systems” to Moscow’s transit, which could make the commute “a fraction of what it is today,” CNN Money reported.
