I build pellet shooting targets and they have manual pull cord reset systems. I want to make a remote control system to do this. I have played with a lot of ideas and just came across arduino as an option.
Here is what I want to do: I want to use a one button android app to send a signal via bluetooth to the adruino board. This signal will tell a servo to move from location "0" to a preset location say "90" then return back to zero. and repeat this every time the button on the app is pushed.
Basically the servo would be hooked to a shaft via shaft coupler or a servo arm. The shooter would knock down the targets which would fall back onto a bar. The servo is hooked to this bar. Once all the targets are knocked down the shooter would push the "reset" button on the app which would send the signal to and Arduino and reset the targets.
I think this is pretty straight forward and simple. The android app and the programming setup of the adruino are my biggest problems at this point.
I have attached a picture of one of the basic targets. The manual pull can be seen on the one side and I would disconnect this and install the remote setup on the other with a protective box.
Not sure if there are people on this forum who would be interested in building or setting something up like this for me to do some testing with??
Any help is appreciated, Thanks url=http://
