Pneumobil - students' project

Pneumobil Project is a prestigious competition organized by the Aventics Company.

Pneumobil is a short term describing a vehicle driven by compressed air. The students from the Institute of Machine and Industrial Design have successfully participated in the last four years of pneumobil races (2nd place in the Creativity of Design, 4th place in the Long Distance Race, 5th place in the Arcade Race) in a competition of 40 teams coming from 8 countries.

The gearing system of the FME vehicle is constructed with chains, free wheels and mechanical gearboxes. The pneumatic system is controlled via a series of PLC controlled valves. The FME team have introduced telemetry to measure the driving parameters online.
