For Lego World 2018 (yes, you read this correct), I have started building a large container warehouse.
The Mindstorms EV3 Delta robot will be used to load the wagons. A first run can be viewed on Youtube:
A completely new delta robot has been build for Lego World 2017. The robot is based on the ABB FlexPicker Robot. You can read more about building the Lego Version at Eurobricks.

The grabber of the robot arm is opened and closed by pneumatic pressure. Therefore, I needed an air compressor that can generate a pressure of approx. 20 – 30 Psi. But how do you manage this air pressure? If the motor keeps running, the air pressure becomes too high. If you switch the motor on and off manually, you need to stay alert and watch the manometer if the air pressure doesn’t become too low. The solution: build an automatic start/stop system. In this article you can read how I achieved this.
Within our fully automated train project Sioux.NET on Track, we are starting a new sideproject called Sioux.NET on Sidetrack.
For 2017, we are building a robot arm with 6 degrees of freedom.
