Munich team of students enters its 4th Hyperloop Pod Competition

What might a futuristic transportation system look like? This is a question that TUM Hyperloop, a project team of students at the Technical University of Munich, is tackling. The team is namely researching and developing, with the aid of sponsors, a so-called Hyperloop, or high-speed tunnel transportation system. BayernLB is on board as a sponsor.

This is an exciting opportunity for us to contribute towards a future-oriented project while also helping our home region of Bavaria.”

Rollout event in Garching

Getting a pre-view of tomorrow’s state-of-the-art technology in rolling stock, logistics and infrastructure is extremely important to our colleagues.

It must be thrilling to chat with young scientists who are working on a complete reboot of our transportation system.
