SYSTEMS PREPARATION QUESTIONS 2007 - 8

V. Ryan 2008

 

A technology student has developed an automatic traffic control system for a level crossing on the theme parks miniature railway system.

A pressure sensor detects when a pedestrian passes over it. The sensor is connected to INPUT 1 of a control system.

A light sensor detects the presence of a miniature train close to the crossing. The light sensor is connected to INPUT 2 of the control system.

When a pedestrian is detected the control system checks if a miniature train has passed the light sensor. Then the traffic lights run through a sequence of changes, eventually changing the lights from red to green, raising the barrier and allowing the car to cross the railway line safely.

If a train is present the traffic light s stay on red and the barrier stays lowered / closed.
