Guadaloop to raise money through the crowdfunding campaignMarch 27, 2019
Texas Guadaloop is a Hyperloop research and development team from the University of Texas at Austin.
“This is not just an engineering project, we have students with majors such as computer science, business, math, physics, psychology, economics and more. We are the team representing UT and the state of Texas in the push towards Hyperloop technology. We are a team that believes in change and progress through innovation and hard work.”
Guadaloop won multiple awards, including the Innovation Award at the SpaceX Hyperloop Pod Competition II and the #1 spot in the World during last years National Instruments Engineering Impact Awards.
Now they want to raise the money to move forward through the crowdfunding campaign:
The goal is to create a fully functioning and autonomous Hyperloop pod prototype that levitates, brakes, propulses itself, and works inside a vacuum.
The team is highly motivated to develop its ideas while being very conscious about the main goal of the Hyperloop technology – fight the pollution by bringing the most effective and sustainable transportation technology.
“We need to tackle our traffic and pollution problems. Researching and developing new methods of transportation is key to succeed in this endeavor. We need to move away from the technologies that have proven to be detrimental, to a certain extent, to our environment, economy, and well-being and substitute them with ones that meet our necessities in a more efficient and environmentally friendly manner.”
