The MagLev has been intensively used in engineering education, allowing instructors and students to learn through hands-on experiences of essential concepts, such as electronics, electromagnetism, and control systems. Built from scratch, the MagLev depends only on simple, low-cost components readily available on the market.
The paper Semi-Active Magnetic Levitation System for Education shows how to construct a novel low-cost magnetic levitation system for educational purposes. Although recognizing many MagLev models in the literature, we present a novel design that employs easily found, low-cost spare parts. Using the components and source code described here, instructors and students can construct their own low-cost MagLev devices. By doing so, instructors and students can enrich the learning experience and practice hands-on training on relevant electronic topics, such as sensors, actuators, electronic circuit building, microcontroller programming, electromagnetism, and control systems. This paper describes the step-by-step necessary to construct a MagLev from scratch—all the diagrams and source code are freely available
The next video shows the MagLev working.
