The name maglev is derived from magnetic levitation. Magnetic levitation is a highly advanced technology. It has various uses.The common point in all
applications is the lack of contact and thus no wear and friction.This increases efficiency,reduces maintenance costs, and increases the useful life of the system. The magnetic levitation technology can be used as an efficient technology in the various industries.
There are already many countries that are attracted to maglev systems. Many systems have been proposed in different parts of the worlds.Magnetic Levitation is a way to suspend magnetic objects in air without any support, as if in defiance of gravity. An unsung phenomenon of the past which is now being put to use in a variety of interesting and useful applications.
Our project is completely dependent on the magnetic levitation method. To demonstrate this levitation we had planned to use superconductor as it has different properties and has a capacity to act as a magnet and to levitate. But due to unavailability of superconductor and its high cost, we would describe the same concept of magnetic levitation using superconductor by taking help of electronic method.In this electronic method, we would be using ATMEGA16 microcontroller,a 16 * 2 LED display.
Also the programmer used here would be BASCOTT AVR and the loader used to insert codes would be ROBOKITS programmer.Further HT12D and HT12E are been used for decoding and encoding respectively. A PMDC motor of 25000 rpm is used having a 12 v battery and finally a propeller is used to push the object or the magnet in one direction.
