Turret Used a Roboduino for cleaner wiring. http://razor.narobo.com/turret.html
I'm impressed! i think i might do a project like this now, but when i can afford it =P
so did you use something to track movement, then orient the barrel toward that? what did you use to do that?
THAT IS SO AWESOME!!! just adding the portal noise quadropels it's awesomness! btw, what is that airsoft gun? what is it run on? batery spring loading? i didn't see any air cylinders or such...
Ah that’s fantastic. That’s somewhat on the lines of what I’m trying to do.
I was taking a look at your tracking code but I’m not totally sure how it works. Could you explain your logic?
Airsoft gun is a cheap AEG from wal-mart or something. I use a relay to drive the motor in the airsoft gun.
The tracking is a Sharp IR rangefinder on a servo. Basically it tracks the left side of objects... very crude but I don't want to spend the time to learn facial tracking with cameras and such :P
Here is where I got the tracking idea: http://www.societyofrobots.com/robot_sumo.shtml
How do you trigger the airsoft? Did it come with an electric valve? Or did you have to add something like a solenoid to actuate a mechanical trigger?
The airsoft gun is electric gun, so if you power the electric motor, it will fire.
