Rubber bands, gear wheels and motors attachment for solving FLL 2013 Truck and Ambulance (part 4)

In the final video we explore how to trigger the release of the attachment with just a rubber band. The release is triggered with a gear wheel that rotates in a specific way. This saves speed, does not require additional LEGO Mindstorms motor and is precise enough for a competition. 

Rubber bands, gear wheels and motors attachment for solving FLL 2013 Truck and Ambulance (part 3)

Previously we caught the Truck with two rubber bands. The next step was to lift it. For lifting we used the Medium LEGO Mindstorms EV3 motors. In this video we are extending the attachment so that we could catch also the Ambulance. In forth video we would explore how to release both vehicles after transporting them.
