A DIY magnetic levitation vehicle to inspire future engineers

maglevIt’s a Do It Yourself (DIY) remote controlled (RC) model maglev with electromagnetic propulsion, or shortly called maglev.
A maglev is just like a conventional train but instead of wheels it has magnets and it levitates!
The team did a great job not only for the results achieved but especially in sharing the project’s documentation, detailed with all the steps for the construction through videos and pictures so that others can more easily follow in their footsteps.

The maglev, which won the Maker Faire Editor’s Choice blue ribbon, contains Arduino UNO, Arduino Wireless Protoshield, plus many other components.
