IEEE Spectrum Highlight: Hyperloop Transportation Technologies Picks Passive Levitation for Pods

  Check out this IEEE Spectrum article covering the recent breakthrough in Hyperloop's magnetic levitation technology. The passive levitation system, called Inductrack, works by lining the bottom of the pod with permanent magnets, placed in a so-called Halbach array so as to induce a repelling field when they pass over shorted, that is, non-powered, electromagnetic coils on the railbed. Because the maglev effect is passive, any power cutoff would both slow the pod and cause it to settle down on the track. Read more and watch the video!

IMPACT Blog Highlight: From Engineer to Manager - Mastering the Transition

  Young professionals and students in the engineering and technology disciplines are predominantly focused on developing their technical attributes in order to succeed in their careers. As their careers progress, they find themselves facing the daunting task of rapidly transitioning into a management role and realise that they need a set of skills which they haven’t developed sufficiently. In this month's IMPACT blog highlight, we delve into this topic with Claudio Insaurralde, the IEEE Victorian Section TEMS Chair and Region 10 Industry Relations committee member.
