Teams of students from the University of Adelaide succeeded in creating anti-gravity vehicles. Wheelchair-shaped with two large wheels, the vehicle was named after Edward, which stands for Electric Diwheel Rotation With Active Damping.
A racing car seat placed in the middle, as the driver controls the vehicle was yellow. Whereas, the control stick is placed between the legs, to facilitate the driver to move it.
This vehicle can travel at 25 miles per hour or 40 kilometers per hour. The rider can move rotate against gravity, such as playing in one of the Disneyland rides.
To create stability when driving, this student using the equations of motion in the mathematical theory, which is applied in the simulation. After that, the new control system was created.
This vehicle was able to move to climb. However, just to climb the heights with the degree of slope of 12 degrees.
Jack Parsons, a student Diwheel maker says, “Edward was only able to move, but also green. It uses electricity, but power can be saved with appropriate speed.”
This vehicle, glance similar to the one vehicle in a science fiction film Star Wars: Revenge of the Sith. Students seemed to try to turn the fantasy created by George Lucas to create Diwheel. But, of course Diwheel can not be used as an everyday vehicle.
