The Technology of Knuffingen Airport@Miniatur Wunderland

Was watching Gerrit Braun's video diary for Knuffingen Airport and was amazed with the technology behind this display at Miniatur Wunderland. Truly amazing as it is really an exercise in attention to detail. From fully functioning nose wheel to lights and infra red positioning to allow the aircraft to act indepently without any physical wires. What holds it all together is the central software that coordinates all the vehicles and attractions in the display.

Unless you speak German its hard to understand the video. You can watch it at youtube then click the Interactive Transcript button to see the English translation of the video.
