The name may have changed, but the result is the same: For the fourth time in a row, a German team registered the top speed in SpaceX CEO Elon Musk’s超环型吊舱竞赛for college-level engineers.

TheTUM Hyperloopteam from the Technical University of Munich — formerly known as WARR Hyperloop — sent its sleek pod racer through a specially built, mile-long test track next to SpaceX’s headquarters in Hawthorne, Calif., at a top speed of 288 mph (463 kilometers per hour).

在运行结束时有一些戏剧性的,当豆荚经历了特斯拉蒂摄影师汤姆克罗斯所谓的一个“快速非计划拆卸”— but the judges nevertheless gave the nod to the German team.

As WARR Hyperloop, the same team had the top speed during thepreviousrunningsof the Hyperloop competition.

今天的亚军是Swissloop(160 mph) andEPFLoop(148 mph) from Switzerland, plusDelft Hyperloop来自荷兰。华盛顿大学有一个参加比赛的队伍but didn’t make it to the Final Four.

Musklaid the foundation for the Hyperloop contestback in 2015, to encourage the development of technologies that could follow through on his vision of a high-speed, tube-based transportation system.

The roots of the concept go back even further, to 2013, when Musk said Hyperloop pods could transport passengers at near-supersonic speeds between, say, the San Francisco Bay Area and Los Angeles in about a half-hour.

Musk founded a tunneling venture calledthe Boring Company实现超循环概念的某些方面。与此同时,诸如Virgin Hyperloop OneHyperloop Transportation Technologies他们也在努力建立商业超环线网络。

Engineers from SpaceX and the Boring Company presided over this weekend’s contest, which drew hundreds of participants representing 21 teams in all.

In a tweet, Musk promised to kick things up a notch by holding next year’s contest in a 10-kilometer (6.2-mile) vacuum tunnel with a curve.
