维珍集团(Virgin)珀伽索斯号(Pegasus)超级高铁近日于美国内华达州沙漠首航测试圆满成功,项目由BIG事务所与Kilo Design事务所联合打造,百年来首次以全新的交通方式成功地搭载第一批试航旅客,创造了令人惊叹的历史。三家公司强强联手设计的珀伽索斯号(Pegasus),或称XP-2号,是一种采用了自动运输系统的新型车辆类型,可实现超过1000公里/小时的时速,是现有陆地交通中最快的运输方式。经过一年多的密切合作,首批乘客在维珍超级高铁位于拉斯维加斯的DevLoop试验场试航了这种新形式的交通工具。在真人试航之前,维珍集团已对珀伽索斯号进行了超过400次的无人模拟测试。试航过程由业内认可的独立安全评估认证机构(ISA)监督,作为世界首个全功能型载人运输系统,珀伽索斯号的成功标志了交通运输历史上里程碑式的时刻。

Designed by BIG-Bjarke Ingels Group and Kilo Design, Virgin Hyperloop’s Pegasus pod made history in the Nevada desert as it successfully carries its first passengers in the newest form of travel in over a century. Virgin Hyperloop partnered with BIG and Kilo to design Pegasus, or ‘XP-2’, a new vehicle typology for an autonomous transportation system to achieve hyperloop travel at the speed of over 1,000km/hour, the fastest form of land-based travel. After over a year of close collaboration, the first passengers trial this new form of transportation at Virgin Hyperloop’s 500m DevLoop test site in Las Vegas, where the company has previously run over 400 tests in un-occupied pods. The demonstration was overseen by the industry-recognized Independent Safety Assessor (ISA) Certifier, and its success marks a historic moment in transportation as Pegasus becomes the first manned and fully functional system for Hyperloop travel.

除了设计超级高铁初号机的外形外,BIG事务所与Kilo Design事务所的设计任务还包括为维珍集团未来的Hyperloop系列车型定义完整的设计语言与特征。在未来,实际投产的车型将会更大,最多可容纳28名乘客。此次吊舱式双人车型的试航目的是展示超级高铁的实操性与安全性。珀伽索斯号(Pegasus)可以看作是一种由内而外设计的压力容器,它是一种全新的,完全不同的车辆类型。

BIG and Kilo’s role in Pegasus was to design for this first use case while also defining the design language and characteristics for future Virgin Hyperloop vehicles. While the production vehicle will be larger and seat up to 28 passengers, this 2-seater pod was built to demonstrate that passengers can in fact safely travel in a Hyperloop vehicle. Pegasus is conceived as a pressurized vessel designed inside and out as a new and radically different vehicle typology.

设计的核心在于结合性能和以人为本的特点,使车身与滑轨完美统一,为项目创造无缝的流畅外观。由于珀伽索斯号的运行是在接近真空的环境中进行的,因此车身设计几乎不需要考虑对空气动力学的需求,进而形成了这种流线形的时尚外观。真空的环境使运输系统比传统的轨道交通更加节能。它采用磁悬浮设计,避免了车轮的阻力,从而以最大的速度运输最多的乘客或货物。珀伽索斯号也可以单独行驶,超高的起步与停泊速度,使其可以适应任何旅行需求。

The design focuses on unifying and covering both the pressure vessel and sled, creating a seamless appearance that combines both performance and human-centered characteristics. Since Hyperloop travel exists in a near vacuum environment, the need for aerodynamics becomes minimal, leading to a sleek design without the need for aerodynamic features. This environment makes the transportation system much more energy efficient than traditional rail transit. It’s engineered with magnetic levitation and avoids the drag of wheels, allowing for the maximum amount of speed to move the maximum number of passengers or cargo. Pegasus pods move individually as well, with a high arrival- and departure-rate allowing for on-demand travel.

舱体前部的“铲”型结构自然形成了入口的台阶,方便乘客进出。舱体侧部与前门均设有玻璃窗,从这里,人们可以清晰地看到隧道内的景观。这些特点共同组成了珀伽索斯号充满未来感的外观,重复出现的曲线元素与胶囊式外壳凸显出舱体的深度,层次以及主入口。

The front ‘scoops’ of the vessel create natural steps for comfortable entry and egress, and apertures on the sides of the fairing as well as the front door contain a forward-facing window for outward viewing down the tunnel. Altogether, these features create a link to Pegasus’ external design, where repeating soft forms and pill shape cut-outs are used to highlight depth, layers and entryways.

舱体内部面积为6平方米,是根据安全性与乘客的舒适感量身定制的。内部家具设有必要的安全设备以及控制装置。座椅与延伸出来的座椅护臂具有多重功能,包括辅助乘客进出,储存安全设备,运输氧气,并结合有照明功能。该座椅还可以快速组装和拆卸,以便后部设备的装载。经过严格彻底的安全监测后,帕伽索斯号向人们展示出许多将在商业Hyperloop系统上搭载的关键性安全系统以及最先进的控制系统,这些系统可以检测出车辆的非额定状态,并迅速触发适当的紧急措施。

The 6m2 interior is custom-built with occupant safety and comfort in mind, with the necessary safety equipment and controls built into the furniture.  Inside, the seating elements and extended arms serve multiple functions including as an entry and egress aid, and as storage for safety equipment, oxygen throughput and lighting. The seats can also be quickly assembled and disassembled for rear equipment access. Having undergone a rigorous and exhaustive safety process, Pegasus demonstrates many of the safety-critical systems that will be found on a commercial Hyperloop system and is equipped with a state-of-the-art control system that can detect off-nominal states and rapidly trigger appropriate emergency responses.

维珍集团已于上月宣布将由BIG事务所设计的Hyperloop超级高铁认证中心(HCC)设在西弗吉尼亚。HCC的建立与此次试航成功展示出的安全性,为全球Hyperloop系统的认证铺平了道路。可以说珀伽索斯号将会扭转时空,为人们展现更具科技感的未来!

This announcement follows significant momentum on the regulatory front, when last month, Virgin Hyperloop unveiled West Virginia as the location for the Hyperloop Certification Center (HCC), designed by BIG. The advancements at the HCC and the historic safety demonstration achieved with this test paves the way for the certification of Hyperloop systems around the world–the future of time and space, warped by Pegasus.
