Proton is our first large prototype. It has a length of about 180 cm and should reach a top speed of 300 km/h. It is a complete in-house development by our team.
For example, we have developed a high-speed brake ourselves which can brake our Pod from 300 km/h to 0 km/h in the shortest possible time. Our prototype, like all the prototypes of other student teams, has the ability to move with wheels on the track. However, it will also be able to hover with the help of linear induction motors.
The outer shell is made of carbon fibre to keep the weight as low as possible.
Later prototypes should also be able to reach higher speeds.
