So Ive had this Idea for awhile but unable to make it happen. I am good with circuitry, Ok with programming and have lots of knowledge of RC equipment.
My plan is to have an RC tank that is remote control that would fire at another tank which would take damage and after awhile the tank would be "destroyed".
My plan is to have the main cannon be an Inferred LED and the other tank would have 5 light sensors. One in rear, front, both sides, and turret. Each would be programmed that when hit the tank would lose somewhat control of that side. So basically an Light sensor is hit, registers the hit, registers how many times its been hit, adjusts motor output accordingly.
So if turret has been hit twice, the servo on the turret would either be unable to move, move at a slow speed, or the main gun would be disabled. Once a vehicle took enough damage it would stop doing everything. And once a battle is over the tank could be reset and everything would be back to normal.
Is this possible? I think it is just needs a bit of know how. What materials would I need? like what Arduino boards. How much Arduino programming knowledge, etc. Thanks! I'm willing to hire someone to either program the whole thing or show me etc.
