Design and build your own robotic, Arduino-powered sentry blaster! Break out the big daddy blaster--and teach it to act on its own! Build Your Own Autonomous NERF Blaster walks you through cool DIY projects, such as working with motion sensors, remote monitors, and facial detection software, all while building up to the ultimate goal: a robotic NERF weapon that finds and fires on its targets! Have some serious fun along the way as you learn about creative coding with Processing and Arduino. Step-by-step instructions show you how to: Construct and mount a servo, NERF blaster, and webcam in harmonious alignment Program Processing to receive video, search it for a face, and then pass instructions to your Arduino board via USB cable Configure Arduino to process the message and instruct the servo to move to a new position Specify your target radius in Processing and, when met, send the message to Arduino that it's time to "open fire!"

Get started with Arduino and computer coding. This book is intended for those new to the Arduino and computer coding. and looking to gain the skills to write microcontroller programs that can act on given inputs and operate electromechanical output devices. Coding the Arduino contains four sections: background information, game development, electronic games and projects, and expanded programs. The final chapters expand on the functionality of some of the programs presented in previous chapters, and challenges you with capstone projects. The projects will be described where the program code that is presented can be modified, or in which two or more of the sample programs may be used to synthesize a new program as the solution to the problem that is presented. Additionally, review questions are presented at the end of each chapter to test your comprehension of the material. What You'll Learn Understand basic principles of technology, and about analog and digital electronics. Create games from scratch, where you interactively play against the program. Gain an introduction to Artificial Intelligence (AI) Who This Book Is For Electronic hobbyists, makers of all levels, and teens with an interest in technology and coding who are looking to get started with Arduinos.
