Our design of the pod is hybrid. It consists of air bearings as well as electromagnets. They switch during the operation to optimize performance and power consumption. We have tried to minimize the overall cost of the tube and pod through our proposed design without affecting the performance and reliability of the system. It provides easy access to passengers as well as for maintenance and service.

Our pod uses the innovative Arx Pax hover engines to levitate. Air flowing through the compressor is instead used to control the pod’s lateral motion and is coupled with unique magnetic and mechanical braking systems which ensure safety and control over the pod.

The pod is designed to reflect the team’s values of safety, sustainability and reliability. From product selection to fault detection, all the systems in the pod are designed to minimize energy loss during travel and ensure a safe and comfortable traveling experience for its passengers.

The primary goals of our pod are to (i) successfully demonstrate a scalable levitation technology, and (ii) safely achieve a cruise speed greater than 100 m/s (Mach 0.3). To achieve these goals, our proposed pod is approximately 2.5 meters long and uses permanent magnet arrays for electrodynamic levitation.
