Autonomous Tank with NXT / LeJOS (+Arduino + WiiMote camera)

Postby trandi » Mon Aug 15, 2011 8:45 pm

Hi guys,

I wanted to share with you one of my latest projects:
http://trandi.wordpress.com/2011/05/14/tiger-1-bb-airsoft-rc-tank-%E2%80%93-v3/

The above post contains all the details, including the code (for the Arduino slave board too !) but in a nutsell, it's about an airsoft RC tank that I hacked so that it can be FULLY controlled by a NXT brick (programmed in LeJOS) and fully AUTONOMOUS.
I've also added an IR Camera hacked from a WiiMote, which allows it to track and lock on targets (a simple IR LED) and then fire plastic pellets at it...


I'd be very keen to have some feedback from you guys and / or any suggestions for improvement... !

Thanks,
Dan

P.S. There's a link at the beginning of the post to the previous post which has plenty of pictures with the actual NXT brick inside the tank: http://trandi.wordpress.com/2011/05/02/ ... c-tank-v2/
