Control a Lego aerial tramway with an Android phone app

Future Ideas

The gondola stations (Figure 11) and controls were fairly simple to build. In your own projects, you could:

  • Run the tramway on an incline, like a ski lift.
  • Use an ultrasonic sensor to stop the gondola near either gondola station.
  • Add lights or sound and control them with the Android app.
