The Flight Controls team is responsible for the development of control architecture, sensor and actuator architecture, and fundamental flight control laws that control the motion of the Hyperloop vehicle. These include levitation, guidance, propulsion, braking and docking functionality. The team also generates and codifies the safe operating regimes and high-level safety algorithms for the vehicle from the perspective of the propulsion motor, braking systems, levitation and guidance modules.
The flight actuators are electromechanical in nature and are designed by a highly cross-functional team of engineers in the areas of Electromagnetics, Mechanical Design, Heat Transfer, Materials Science, Testing, Embedded Systems, and Electrical System Modeling.
