The Future of Public Transportation?
The Hornet Hyperloop team from the Sacramento State University will participate in the SpaceX Hyperloop Competition and use an STM32F7 to exceed 200 mph. The Hyperloop pod uses a NUCLEO-F746ZG and our X-NUCLEO-IKS01A1 sensor board to control the acceleration, cruising, and deceleration phases. It puts the components under extreme stress as they must travel in a vacuum tube for one kilometer (about 0.6 miles). To facilitate the development of their application, they also used the graphical user interface of the STM32CubeMX to configure their MCU and prototype faster.
