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.
