Avishkar Hyperloop
Developing Technologies for the 5th Mode of Transportation

Team Avishkar Hyperloop is a diverse and dynamic student team of the Indian Institute of Technology(IIT) Chennai, India, developing novel technologies to make Hyperloop a reality in India and across the globe. Avishkar Hyperloop started in autumn of 2017 as a group of students with the ambition to develop the first Hyperloop pod in India and got selected for the final design round of the SpaceX Hyperloop Pod Competition. In 2019, we showcased our working prototype at the finals of the Competition at Hawthorne CA, where we were the only Asian team among 21 teams globally. We are currently working on our 3rd pod iteration, which is vastly different from our previous designs and employs innovative technologies developed by the team after rigorous research and development. Our ultimate goal is to manufacture a prototype and develop a scalable version of the Hyperloop that fits the Indian requirements and changes how transportation is perceived.
