This is a current work in progress that is waiting for a few parts.
The goal for this project was to make a robot that could go after people with an airsoft gun so me and my friends could play around with it in my yard. Also the turret on the back will be able to be remote controlled or just go find people autonomously using a tempature sensor.(Or atleast that's the plan for now.)
For driving, the bot will be 100% autonomous. The bot will navigate by two ping sensors on the front of it that turn to the sides to scan if an obstruction is in its path. Then the robot will turn to the side thats clearest. It will do all this by using 1 of the 2 picaxes. Also the base is a Ford remote control F-150 truck.
Very blurry so I will have to get another picture but this is what will turn the pings in front. The pings will be mounted on the X servo horns.
Then the turret will use the other picaxe. For the aiming there is a lazy suzane that pans from side to side using a home-made servo, and for tilting the gun there is a standard servo.
The outside of the turret so far with th lazy suzane on top and 3 key switches in back.
The inside. The hole in the middle is for the shaft of the homemade servo.
The airsoft gun I was planning on using got a stripped gear so I have to get a replacement gear or a replacement gun =(
This page will be updated with more info and more pictures once there is more done.
