With the Auto-Turret Project, you can automatically track down and fire upon your enemies! This project utilizes a Pixy camera module, a RobotGeek pan/tilt base, a foam dart gun, and a Geekduino to coordinate the components. The Pixy can be 'taught' to recognize different colors, and when it 'sees' an object with the matched color, it will send data to the Geekduino. The Geekduino will then move the pan and tilt servos so that the object is in the center of the Pixy's field of view. If the object stays still for too long, the foam dart gun will engage, firing a dart at the object!
This project is an amalgam of several RobotGeek kits. Each part is necessary to complete the kit as it is made in this guide.
If you would like to build this project and you already have an Arduino/Geekduino board, you can use the Robot Geek Pan and Tilt Kit w/ Servos instead of the RobotGeek Desktop RoboTurret. You should pick up a Sensor Shield for easier, safer wiring.
