The GCC is running ahead of the US when it comes to commercialising hyperloop technology, which uses electromagnetic propulsion to accelerate trains through a low-pressure tube.
The technology uses an electromagnetic propulsion system to accelerate the movement of goods and services through a vacuum tube.
Hyperloop technology uses an electromagnetic propulsion system to accelerate the movement of goods and services through a vacuum tube at speeds up to 1,200km per hour.
Last month, Hyperloop One said it will continue to test its vehicle, which uses electromagnetic propulsion and magnetic levitation, in the coming months.
Recently, the Johnson Space Center tested an electromagnetic propulsion drive which, they hope, will replace traditional propellant in space travel (Times, 2015).
Inverted coasters, linear motor electromagnetic propulsion, flying coasters, diving coasters and floorless coasters were all made possible by CAD, while "simulation was used to avoid problems," says Begotti.
This is the basic principle behind electromagnetic propulsion. Electromagnets are similar to other magnets in that they attract metal objects, but the magnetic pull is temporary.
