Inside Big Data reports that HyperXite has tapped into the power of CycleCloud, a software suite focusing on ‘Big Data’ for complex computing applications, to propel their developments in the transportation industry. CycleCloud, developed by Cycle Computing, is being leveraged by HyperXite to build and develop a new wave of vehicles that is faster, cheaper, safer and more energy-efficient than current cars, trains, boats etc.

HyperXite is a company that focuses on building the next generation of transportation.  It uses complex theories and Big Data to explore engineering challenges. The company has gone to great lengths to optimize the braking systems, levitation and suspension for future transportation. The model they are working on has undergone several modifications to solve issues on lift, drag, and mass. They are also working on maximizing speed and efficiency.

Earlier, the HyperXite team competed in the SpaceX Hyperloop Pod contest. The Hyperloop idea was first broached by billionaire and tech genius Elon Musk and his company SpaceX.  It is a passenger and freight transport that makes use of a pod-like vehicle which is propelled through a near-vacuum tube at astonishing speeds.  The innovative idea isn’t far-fetched and a lot of companies believe that this concept can be implemented in the very near future.

According to HyperXite’s Simulation Lead Nima Mohseni, Cycle Computing has helped the team’s endeavor to optimize and economize vehicles of the future. She added that CycleCloud was the solution they needed to compress and condense their timeline while achieving the powerful computational results they required. Mohseni also said the software made a significant difference in the team’s ability to complete their work.

“CycleCloud excels at this kind of computational depth”

For their vehicle of the future, HyperXite is studying the fuselage’s fluid dynamics. A full simulation would require more than 5000 CPU hours, and this is where CycleCloud comes into play. Earlier benchmarks showed excellent compatibility with Microsoft Azure. It can handle up to 256 cores working concurrently. Technically, what that means is that it can make use of multiple cores over multiple machines in a cluster, working towards a single task. It is this computational ability, which could revolutionize the transportation industry.

Jason Stowe, CEO of Cycle Computing notes that CycleCloud excels at this kind of computational depth. He stressed that their software brings order and structure as well as huge time savings to the HyperXite team. In turn, he says they are bringing the world closer to achieving a new concept in travel.

These transportation developments are one among many developments alongside the likes of  Dubai opting for alternative means of transport such as flying drone taxis, and the U.S. looking at reformed railway systems. The use of software as well as hardware and mechanical developments could see the future of transportation arrive sooner than we think.
