LEGO® Auto Factory
CODES Lab, ECE Dept., University of Massachusetts at Amherst
Using a small collection of sensors, motors, and a whole lot of ingenuity and LEGO® Technic elements,
a team at the ECE Department at the University of Massachusetts at Amherst has invented a computer-controlled machine which
automatically assembles small LEGO cars on an assembly line built from LEGO elements.
Extensive imagery accompanies the a narrative tour through the factory.
