The Turret Robot 2.0
The Turret Robot 2.0 is a face tracking robot.
The robot lights up the face its tracking when it points the face.
The turret is controlled by a software written in C++ using the OpenCV library
The Arduino commands the vertical and horizontal servos.
The software plays Portal voices :) (using mplayer)
The system works this way :
-The robots is on patrol
-The software grabs a picture from webcam
-The software analyze the picture, trying to find a face
-If a face is detected, the software orders the Arduino to move servos to point the face, if the face is on the middle of the picture, the software orders the Arduino to light up its leds.
-Else the robot continue its patrol
