Bibop Gresta, Chairman at Hyperloop Transportation Technologies, Frank Noppel, Co-founder and CEO at Flugauto, and Aya Sadder, Incubator manager at Intelak, shared insights and facts about the hyperloop technology, flying cars, and the transformation in the way we’ll be commuting 5 years from now.
It’s a fact that the hyperloop technology costs a huge amount of money, however, according to Bibop, the real issue with investing in this technology is not the cost as much as it’s the return on this investment, and that’s why stakeholders are now focusing on reshaping the entire transportation model instead of just working on reducing the cost to maximize efficiency.
Frank, then added that the best way to work in such projects, like Flaugato, is to involve the regulators early on in the discussions in order to make it happen.
What will the future of mobility look like?
Bibop G. Gresta said when we talk about world hunger, that’s bull at STEP Conference. With the Hyperloop Transportation Technologies, Inc. we’re solving for everything, we’re bringing a solution to world hunger through transportation.
Fun facts from the panel:
1) Frank Noppel and his team Alexander Xydas Dr. Gerrit Becker and Vishu Singhal at Flugato, are creating mini electric “copters” that will transport goods up to 250kg at a speed of 150 km/h for a total distance of 250km.
2) Another myth that Bibop cracked is that there is no straight lines with the Hyperloop. They will never travel at a constant speed, because they will have to accelerate and decelerate to accommodate for the curvature in the terrain.
