The goal of this study is to develop a control method for levitation stabilization of an aerodynamic levitated train named the "Aero-Train," which is a high-speed, high- efficiency train system. The levitation in this system occurs because of the wing-in-ground effect that acts on a U-shaped guideway. In order to achieve the goal of this study, a small experimental prototype and a control method for stabilization along the Z axis and about the roll and pitch axes were developed, as described in this paper. The effectiveness of the developed control method is confirmed by experimental results. I. INTRODUCTION Recently, global environment problems associated with the expanse of field, scale, and variety of human activities, such as problems related to climate change, air pollution, and desertification, have become pronounced. The development of high-efficiency transportation systems is an important task, but at the same time, there is a great demand for increasing the speed of such systems. Therefore, next-generation trans- portation systems must have both high efficiency and high speed.
