Question
Dear Prof Cleggsan

Is it possible to design Audible Alarm system for cable car which will trigger audible alarm bells on occurance of exceeding maximum load capacity of passengers?.

Thanks
Prashant

Answer
It is possible and I doubt if modern cable systems don't already have them.  The design of such would be very similar technology to those used for elevators which you asked previously.  It is not high technology as there are similar systems used with vehicles, buses, airplanes, bridges, highway surfaces, etc.
