This is a project that I have be working on/off for the past 2 years. It is a robotic airsoft gun. It is* capable of detecting objects via webcam and aiming toward the object and firing. Currently, the image processing software is done by using MatLab's Image Processing Toolbox. Motor control is by a Basic Stamp 2 connected to a computer. Movement is from two servo motors connected to gears with a ratio of 5 to 1. It can either be controlled remotely via GUI or set to autonomous mode where it can acquire the specified target on its own.
New development will include the use of OpenCV, an image processing library, and C++. I am currently researching (when I have time) to send commands via serial port to the basic stamp. The image processing using OpenCV can easily be done. I am having trouble communicating with the basic stamp with C++. If you can offer advice or guidance, it would be greatly appreciated.
I can be contacted at FredrickSoria@gmail.com
Thanks for viewing.
**update: the aifsoft gun that is currently in the pictures has broke. It has been replaced by a smaller, yet still powerful gun. Additionally, there is less stress on the gears because of this. Finaly, a video will be posted soon or you can search YouTube user = teknician1
