OneLoop presents a robust pod design, weighing 350lb and capable of reaching 100+ mph with safety as our number one priority
Our structural design features a lightweight aluminum and composite structure, our 35lb chassis withstands the harsh load envolope encountered during the pod’s run
Our brake design features a pneumatic circuit which supplies air pressure to the caliper brakes in order to stop our pod from 100 mph in less than 350 meters.
Our suspension design utilizes four single pivot coil-over suspension systems to keep the ride as smooth as possible as we hit the track’s bumps.
Our propulsion consists of two thrusters which feature a novel propellant mixture and provide XXX lbf of peak thrust each to accelerate the pod
Our control system features a Rockwell PLC that boasts a multitude of safety protocols and sensors which keep track of variables such as pressure, speed,distance, temperature, etc
Additionally, we are also researching and developing a full scale linear induction motor separate from the competition for future purposes. We have designed and manufactured a full-scale LIM motor in house showing a proof of concept of this propulsion system.
