Team Antipodes, a girls robotics team headquartered in Pacifica, California, USA, built this sweet magnetic levitation vehicle, with a home-built 3-phase, 6-solenoid linear motor, on a Lego bed, all controlled via XBee wireless. It’s a Do It Yourself (DIY) remote controlled (RC) model maglev with electromagnetic propulsion, or shortly called maglev.A maglev is just like a conventional train but instead of wheels it has magnets and it levitates!
The team did a great job not only for the results achieved but especially in sharing the project’s documentation, detailed with all the steps for the construction through videos and pictures so that others can more easily follow in their footsteps.
The team has an extensive project page showing you how to build your own maglev. Source?Arduino
