The structural aspect of the Pod is designed to bear various types of loads and vibrations, which could possibly occur during the motion of the Pod. The monocoque chassis, being constructed with CFRP, weighs around 14 kgs.
A pneumatically actuated friction braking system has been implemented in the Pod. It is powerful enough to bring the Pod from 300 kmph to rest, in a span of 200m, with a high deceleration of 1.7g.
The suspension system of the Pod takes care of the impulses/disturbances coming from the track., the inertia effects due to the motion of the Pod and disturbances generating from other subsystems. It accounts for ability in pitch, heave, roll and yaw motion.
The power system is responsible for powering the low Voltage system which consists of the controllers and the sensors and the High Voltage system which consists of the motors. The primary battery weighs 16 kgs but gives 66.6kW power at66.6V and 1000Amps.
The Propulsion System is primarily responsible to safely accelerate the Pod to its maximum speed and safely decelerate to rest. This is achieved with the help of 4 high RPM Motors, mounted on the stability system of the Pod.
Controls and Communication
Controls and Communications module is similar to our central nervous system, along with the sensory organs. It controls the motion of the podand manages the energy consumption accordingly. It monitors the health of allsubsystems and sends important information to remote computer systems.
