HYPERLOOP PROPULSION/BRAKING TEST FRAME

1/13

The Hyperloop propulsion/braking test frame was a project that I lead to help UT Austin's Hyperloop team, Guadaloop. The goal of this project was to be able to test the propulsion and braking of a certain motor on a test track for the electronics team to use when programming the speeds. The frame was designed and built in a period of under 12 hours in collaboration with a teammate. This project pushed me to design a frame from scratch while meeting certain design requirements and working under pressure. The project also helped me get some direct exposure to working with teammates with different ideas and using power tools to construct and assemble wooden and metal components.
