Definition of seat guidelines and realization of a seating concept for the public highspeed transport system Hyperloop
M.Sc. Benjamin Steidl, Maschinenbau und Management, TU Munich
A guideline for seat development in all future Hyperloop vehicles is established and applied as part of the development and conceptual design of the seats for the TUM Hyperloop demonstrator. A comprehensive benchmark of existing and future means of transport and concepts from Hyperloop competitors are also analyzed and evaluated. The requirements for the seats are determined through a literature review and expert interviews with mobility industry experts. The focus of the requirements is on the user-centered design of the seats, with particular attention to ergonomic design. In this way, the long-term competitiveness of the Hyperloop is ensured to take over as large a market share as possible from competitors.
