Stefano Prosseda (SteP) and Paollo Sutto, made something huge and fantastic to present at 'ItLUG LEGO® Fest of Ballabio 2009', this weekend (10-12.Jul).
It is a complete and functional model, from an auto coupling Cable Car station of '3S' type (the last technical breakthrough in the Cable Car world).
On the videos below you can see a lot of details, and how the cars are passed across the different sections, like the real Cable Cars.
- 7 meter span
- Maximum, 4 cars running in aparallel
- 11,5cm/s car travel speed
- 8 motors
- 3 sensors
- Controlled with one RCX 1.0
- Programmed with NQC (4 multitasking applications, running in parallel)
