Braking

The braking team carries a great weight on its shoulders. It is responsible for the design and implementation of a braking system that is as fail-safe as possible. Similar to our levitation system, the braking team also uses permanent magnets. For low speeds, additional disc brakes are used to ensure a safe hold of the pod. Before implementing or realizing any ideas, a large number of simulations had to be carried out in order to verify the first test results.

Working together has taught us two very important things: to meet long-term goals and to manage short-term struggles successfully.
