strap it to a dogs back ? haha.

Seriously though to you know the carts route, you will have to make sure you plan the carts movements with the available moving space, is there a predetermined "track" ? or will this be used anywhere ?

This thread seems to be a duplicate of the other one you started. Starting two threads won't get you any more answers than one.
I'm not an EE--what am I doing here?
