2012-11-26 13:25:34

Peter Suciu for redOrbit.com — Your Universe Online The island nation of Japan features a vast network of high-speed rail lines to connect its cities together. The country´s famous bullet train system, which was developed in the early 1960s and is still regarded around the world as one of the best high-speed mass transit systems in the world, could soon see competition from even faster trains. Last week the Central Japan Railway Co. (JR Tokai) unveiled a prototype of...

Scientists are reporting development of a new use for magnetic levitation, or "maglev," the futuristic technology best known for enabling high-speed passenger trains to float above the tracks. In ACS' bi-weekly Journal of Agricultural and Food Chemistry, they describe putting maglev to use in an inexpensive sensor for analyzing food, water, and other beverages. George Whitesides and colleagues note that measurements of a substance's density are important in the food industry, health care, and...

NSF makes Carnegie Mellon invention available to more researchers PITTSBURGH"” Computers, long used as tools to design and manipulate three-dimensional objects, may soon provide people with a way to sense the texture of those objects or feel how they fit together, thanks to a haptic, or touch-based, interface developed at Carnegie Mellon University. Unlike most other haptic interfaces that rely on motors and mechanical linkages to provide some sense of touch or force feedback, the...

Maglev
2014-04-11 09:17:26

Maglev is a vehicle propulsion system that uses magnetic levitation to move a vehicle with magnets instead of wheels. The vehicle hovers a short distance above the guide way by magnets and also uses the magnets for motion. The operation of this system is quite and maintains less friction for improved acceleration and deceleration. Weather does not affect the performance of the vehicle. Currently, some trains make use of the Maglev system, but vacuum tube trains could allow a Maglev system...
