Brake System Development

The Fifth Mode of Transportation – Tachyon Hyperloop

Combine controlled levitating of a capsule in a near vacuum tube with an electrical propulsion system and you might have a hyperloop in a nutshell. We at Tachyon are certain that revolutionizing the transport sector with high innovation in combination with sustainability is not just possible, but necessary for a bright and exciting future for every one of us. Be a part of a fascinating and groundbreaking mission and help us establish a new highly innovate green-tech sector in Germany and Europe

About this position

We call our vehicle as Pod. We need robust braking system to stop the pod after propelling it to 300 km/h. Brakes plays very important role in safety during the test runs. For our first porotype we are use pneumatic actuators which stop the pod by creating friction with the track. Your task will be optimizing the current design and innovate the actuating mechanism making it more efficient..

Requirements for position

  • Ideally, previous knowledge of CAD programs
  • Interest into pneumatics systems
  • Motivation and ability to work in a team
  • Dedication to the project
  • Living in Aachen

What will be your tasks

  • Familiarization with the brakingsystem
  • Development and elaboration of the entire system as well as individual components
  • Cooperation in cross-group tasks(e.g. testing, manufacturing)

What do we offer

  • Opportunity to apply your theoretical knowledge in practice and to implement your own ideas in a motivated and exciting environment
  • Surround yourself with a group of extraordinary students who all want more from their studies
  • Contact with potential employers and establishment of a network (in industry and research)
  • Pre-start-up experience
  • Advantages for career-start through project
