Eddy Current Brakes

The Eddy Current Braking team designs and develops a braking system that utilizes the magnetic properties of eddy currents to slow the pod down from its projected top speed of 50 miles per hour to 10 miles per hour.

Eddy Currents are essentially areas of current that are created in conductors when magnetic fields are changed. The attraction force of these currents is what the team is using to slow the pod down.
