Mariana Avezum

Founder, Record-Breaking Winner, Team Founder and Former Project Lead MOOWE, SpaceX Hyperloop Pod Competition, WARR Hyperloop

Mariana Avezum, is the founder of the WARR Hyperloop team, the interdisciplinary student team at the TU Munich who went on to winning, three times, the SpaceX Hyperloop Pod Competition. Within the The Hyperloop Pod Competition which is sponsored by SpaceX and attracting more than 1,000 applicants globally, the team designed, built, and tested functional prototypes for the new mode of transportation demonstrating various aspects of the Hyperloop concept.
 
She is now pursuing a PhD in the area of sustainable mobility and is researching how the different mobility providers can and should communicate with each other, in order to ensure that the future of mobility is as green as possible. She has started her business Moowe to incentive people to go sustainably from A to B, by calculating the greenest route in inner city commutes. By Moowe, Mariana strives to promote conscious mobility to decrease the individual carbon footprint by bringing economic value to sustainable mobility.
 
She is also an ambassador for the Munich Geekettes, promoting events to incentive women in STEM. Prior to that, she obtained a Computer Science M.Sc. while always working on interdisciplinary projects, which go from virtual reality, to indoor navigations, to using drones for image recognition use cases.
 
SpaceX Hyperloop pod competition
The Hyperloop Pod Competition is a competition sponsored by SpaceX where a number of student and non-student teams are participating to design—and for some, build—a subscale prototype transport vehicle to demonstrate technical feasibility of various aspects of the Hyperloop concept. The competitions have been open to participants globally attracting more than 1,000 applicants.

04/10/2019 16:00 04/10/2019 17:00 Racing a Prototype for Hyperloop: SpaceX Competition Experience to Build Future Sustainable Transport and Other Innovative Approaches to Deliver Sustainable Transport Today It is well discussed that cities in the future are bound for a great change on how people go from A to B. Currently several approaches are being discussed for the future of mobility: from air taxis to underground tunnels, to modular modes of transport, to hyperloops. We will analyze how high-speed rail systems operating under low pressure environments have the potential to more efficiently connect cities while reducing the effects of urban sprawl. Prototypes to actually build these systems will be discussed, as well as the need to efficiently integrated these into existing infrastructure in order to achieve both maximal throughput. Nonetheless congestions originates from the fact that over 60% of the available physical space on city roads is underused by empty cars, which have a great effect on pollution. By working towards both a cultural change and a technology revolution, it is possible to efferently solve traffic.
