Magnetic Levitation, popularly known as ‘Maglev’ is the latest mode of transport and one that is expected to revolutionize the transportation world in the 21st century. Based on the principle of electromagnetic propulsion, the Maglev train uses advanced technology wherein the vehicle is guided on a custom made guideway. The vehicle is a lot faster as compared to wheeled vehicles and floats over the guideway on a magnetic field, propelled forward by the changing magnetic fields along the guideway. Maglevs have excellent acceleration and can reach speeds of up to 300-500 miles per hour or more.
