Autonomous Orange Thrower Machine

Throws oranges when it sees a certain color

This is a catapult/trebuchet made of canes, which controlled by a PC via an arduino and a servo connected to it using a USB cable.

The computer runs the ComputerOnWheelsController application which searches for a specified color on the webcam's image and, when the blob is on a certain position, orders the arduino to rotate the servo, throwing the orange.
