UWindsor team welcomes all to see the future of transportation

A team of students from the University of Windsor and St. Clair College invites the public to view its entry in a contest to create the best high-speed pod.

The goal of the 2019 SpaceX Hyperloop Pod Competition is to encourage students to think about new forms of transportation that could radically change the way cities function. The competition will judge student’s high-speed pod based on one criteria: a self-propelled pod that produces maximum speed with successful deceleration.

The UWindsor and St. Clair team is one of just three from Canada to reach this stage of the challenge. It features a diverse group of students, from different undergraduate and master disciplines.

Members will unveil their pod, 3083LIM-1, to anyone wishing to see this inventive project on Friday, July 5, at 5:30 p.m. in the Industrial Courtyard of the Centre for Engineering Innovation. Admission is free but requires advance registration through an online RSVP.
