With all of the excitement about the new Hyperloop technology, some students thought it was time to get in on the fun but using different equipment. This project, known as the "Coil Train", uses electromagnetic coils in a proof-of-concept design to test accelerating and catching a projectile (the model train). The final design will hopefully show a smooth oscillation of the projectile from one end of the track to the other, without activating the safety catches.
NOTE: This project is currently inactive.
