  1. This is my new automated forklift. It has a much stronger lifting mechanism than my previous efforts, and has a proper two-stage (or "duplex") mast. The traction and steering are both provided by the rear wheels - I was pretty pleased at figuring out how to do that! Hope you like it! Automated forklift with dog-treat
  2. Hi there, I'm fairly new to Mindstorms, and these forums, but I thought you might be interested to see my automated forklift truck (hope you enjoy the humour!):
  3. At our Youtube channel, you'll find a video of our fully automated train layout. It will be displayed on Lego World Utrecht 2015 from October 25 (Sunday) until October 27 (Tuesday). The video shows the layout in our test room. The train layout contains eight EV3 bricks and one NXT brick to control all the Lego objects. The layout is controlled by a PC application (Microsoft.NET) that has been written by our team. Enjoy the video and maybe we'll meet in Utrecht. /Hans
  4. After 7 months of engineering and building, I'm proud that I can present you my new video! In the video you'll see three coal trains riding around. They can load at two silos and unload at the main terminal. The unloaded coals are delivered by conveyor belts and an excavator to the loading silos, so a continuous loop is possible! The unloading part is the most complicated part of the structure: pneumatic cilinders will push a conductor to the bottom of the wagons, where also a conductor is located. These conductors power motors in the wagon which open a hatch in the bottom of the Lego coal wagon. The coals drop on a conveyor belt and are transported with other conveyor belts and an excavator to the silos. It's all automated by 6 Arduino controllers (including the arduino that controls the passenger trains). I cleared out the living room (GF was away for a few days, as planned) with a friend of mine and after 12 hours of setting the whole thing up we could finally begin with running some trains and commission the whole thing! Obviously the whole thing didn't work at once, so a hilarious fails-video is on the way too. Enjoy, share and let me know what you think of it!
  5. The past three months I was building on my new project: a container terminal that loads and unloads containers from trains: all automatic. I designed the Lego buildings, hardware and software upstairs in my "Lego room", which isn't quite big. So in the end I had to install the whole shabang in my cleared out living room. Thank God I have girlfriend who doesn't complain about these things! I had one weekend to get it all working. I've built the whole thing up with a friend of mine but somehow I couldn't get the electronics working. It had to do with failing communication between the microcontrollers. Frustrating, since it all worked just perfect upstairs in my Lego room! So I did some last minute soldering to make the best out of it. That's why just one side of the terminal is functional. I working on an improved version to make it all work just perfect! And here the result! Enjoy!
