Stopping the unstoppable is the biggest challenge. The motion of permanent or electromagnet in a conducting tube such as copper under the action of gravity is fascinating. The motion of the magnet is opposed by a force as explained by Lenz’s law. The Hyperloop capsule can be brought to a halt from high speed by using this principle. The tube is made of copper or aluminum and the capsule is an electromagnet. This even solves the problem of stationary levitation.

The Automatic Fail-Safe Air Bearing System is a self-actuating system that seamlessly brings the pod from low-speed wheeled travel to high-speed air bearing levitation. The mechanical system automatically retracts air skis in the event of pod power loss or air supply pressure loss.
NYU Hyperloop’s S.L.A.T.E. is a pod design that will facilitate a safe, economically viable, and practical implementation of the Hyperloop concept. Its unique modular payload capability opens Hyperloop to a greater market. With its multi-stage implementation, S.L.A.T.E. will make convincing investors and future passengers frictionless.

Transport people safely, efficiently, economically, and elegantly – these traits make the mission to push the Hyperloop beyond a science fiction idea and into the realm where people will say “Okay, wow, that actually works.” Includes: lift system, defensively autonomous integration, and wild enthusiasm on safety.

Our emergency braking subsystem is based on the working principle of Eddy Current braking. Upon triggering, fins from the pod will extend towards the tube with solenoid coils at the edge. By charging these coils using a reserve power source, the resulting retardant force will stop the pod safely.
