  • Robot Laser Gaming

    In this project for the course Mechatronics, I wrote the software that enables the robot arm to find IR beacons using a WiiMote as a camera. The goal was to make a robotic turret that could be used in a laser game situation, where it could autonomously find and track targets. Each player was equipped with an arduino powered pack that responded to infrared signals sent out by the guns that were attached to it. If a player was hit, the gun would shut down for a few seconds. Likewise, the turret could also be temporarily stunned by shooting it.
