Automation is my nack. [I am lazy.]

I am ‘OCD’. [‘Do it very right the first time.’]


Florida Atlantic University, Boca Raton FL 2014/Sep - 2018/May Mechanical Engineering, BS, 2018

Relevant Projects:

Arrow Train: a High Speed Rail alternative concept A 25 inch long craft lifted by a cushion of air, moving on a track [simulating precast concrete], powered by RF controlled fans

Lift is achieved by 4 Electric Ducted Fans (EDF) each controlled by their own Electric Speed Controller (ESC) and [Arduino] micro-processor. All which were connected to a Master micro-processor. Horizontal propulsion is achieved by 2 EDF’s housed in a 3D Printed ‘jet engine’ looking casing at the rear of the craft. It is an accumulation of 20 years worth of following this field. It began as an attempt to make a MagLev the size of a Lionel Train. The break-through was a few years ago in discovering the work of Jean Bertin [circa 1965] and his Aero-Train France. Experience:
