I thought I would post this for those train fans out there. This was a collaboration with a few of my class mates from Electrical Engineering Program for our Capstone project.


We built 60% of everything on the table. There were only a few retail items that were used, just because someone had it laying around. We created a program that use a 8051 chip to controlled the traffic lights. For the railroad crossing we used Infrared emitters and sensors that would send a signal to a power supply to start the signals, when the train cut the beam.IMG_5423

Needless to say we aced our final! And our school even asked to use the images in their up and coming brochure. Special thanks goes to John & Garett for all the long hours they helped put into this!

Thanks for dropping by.
