detachable ropeway controlled by 2 RCX, 15 motors and 9 sensors
About this creation
Hi together
After 6 years of „LEGO-free-time“, I built a detachable Ropeway system based on Doppelmayr/Garaventa – 3S-Mountain-Rides.
In the stations, the gondolas get off the rope and are slowed down to 12% of their speed. So passengers can easily get in and out of the gondolas.
There are 15 motors, 9 sensors, 2 Mindstorms RCX and about 5000 parts used in this project.
Here’s a video from Bricking-Bavaria-Exhibition 2012 in Munich:

Other videos: search "Elias Iten" in YouTube.
The RCX maintain a steady distance of 28 seconds between the gondolas and lightsensors detect when the pulling-rope falls out of a deflection pulley and automatically stop the whole ropeway.
One station has a pneumatic deflection pulley to strech the rope. The tension is regulated by an automated pneumatic compressor and a rotation sensor.

Hi Elias, Your ropeway is amazing!!! The video tells much more than this single photo. And even than it's difficult to see how it works exactly. Very hi-tech, great.
