So, no Star Trek double door? A single motor is fine, but for most any
multiple part or action door you'll need to setup a cable/rope and guide
pulley system for a prototype. The cable can then wind and unwind from around
the drive pulley for retraction and deployment. Easiest for the fan is, to
build-in some slight downfall angle so weights can deploy the door as the
motor unwinds. The origami panel could use more of a clothes-line arrangement.
Trying to arrive at a rather simplistic but dependable operation. I think
you'd be best served by a reversible motor that's activated twice by 2 motion
sensors. The motion sensor I have in mind is actually an outdoor floodlight,
as these not only turn on by the sensor but also have an adjustable turn-off.
Having a 2nd floodlight sensor on the other side of the door would turn-on the
motor's reverse and then turn-off. This should allow the door to open and
close regardless of activation side.
