We were really tired of being so bad at water pong, so we decided to make a robot that would be really good at it. Table 39
What it does
It detects where the cups are, and then launches a ping-pong ball right into it. Table 39
How we built it
We used ROS and OpenNI2 to get the image data, OpenCV to analyze it, and then a bunch of hardware to fire the ball. Table 39
Challenges we ran into
Making the ball consistent was super hard. Also, it was tough to stop vibrations
Accomplishments that we're proud of
This was cool.
What we learned
Hardware is super sketch.
What's next for The Perfect Partner
Giving it a cutoff.
