A School Site Licence for the Flowol Secondary 3D Mimic Pack 1. Mimics are on-screen simulations of real-life situations that can be controlled by your Flowol program as if they were real machines.
The Car Park Mimic gives students the opportunity to explore the control features of car park barriers. Input switches on the ticket posts and pressure mats can be used to operate the articulated barrier. A variable can be used to count the cars [in and out], control the Full sign and illuminate the seven segment display to indicate the available spaces
The Bridge Mimic gives students the opportunity to explore the operation and safety features of a lifting road bridge. The beacons and road signals can be controlled and the left and right road barriers operated separately. The main bridge and barriers each have virtual input switches to detect when they are fully open or closed
The Lift Mimic gives students the opportunity to explore the control features of a lift. The position of the lift is detected by virtual sensors on each floor. These can be used to stop the lift accurately and operate the floor indicator lights. By combining the inputs from the call buttons and position sensors, the lift's movement can be controlled. When the doors operate, warning messages can be added by using the sound files included with the mimic
The Flume Mimic gives students the opportunity to explore and control the excitement and safety of a theme park ride. The sign, camera and fountain can be activated by the virtual inputs tripped by the moving logs. The log movements can be controlled by gates and feedback switches. (Initially choose one log with two gates and then introduce two logs with three gates)
