Airsoft RC Tank Tracks Enemy and Fires

at 11:38 pm. Filed under Complex Hacks, Cool Gadgets, DIY Hacks, Electronic Hacks, Toy Hacks


This project by Robotics / Electronics / Physical Computing is an Airsoft RC Tank that Tracks the Enemy and Fires at them. Using IR LEDs on a target and a LEGO NXT brain the robotic tank drives around looking for the target. The tank doesn’t hit anything because it has an ultrasonic sensor in the front to sense the distance from objects. A Wiimote camera is used to look for the IR light on the target. When the target is found the tank positions and fires. You can see the first video below where the tank tracking code is demonstrated and the second video where the fully autonomous tank is shown in action. This builds on many other projects , check out how the Wiimote camera is connected to a LEGO NXT computer and version 1 and version 2 of the tank.

Thanks Dan.
