 Project "SCAD" - Safe Collection and Delivery

Following recent tremors and quakes on the planet Gondwana, concern has been expressed about effective rescue of citizens caught on the wrong side of large crevices. It is proposed that a device be designed and trialled to transport passengers from the significantly at-risk hillside communities along the "Superior Fault-Line" to the safer more stable plain below.

In the "ACME Pinnacle Laboratory", the Gondwanan Land Rescue Organisation is struggling to arrive at a design that might be feasible. Fortunately, teams of engineering students from Earth are about to visit Gondwana as part of their work experience programmes. On previous visits engineering students have rendered invaluable assistance, and the Gondwanans again seek help from these budding engineers.


The objective is to design, build and prove a prototype device in a laboratory environment that serves to transport safely citizens across a substantial crevice, to a significantly safer plain below. Can you assist in Project SCAD - the Safe Collection And Delivery of Gondwanan citizens?
