This project was Mecca Design. They needed a game similar to the Camp Sweeney squirt game. But they would build the front end (the face) of the game. We were to just do the underlying robot skeleton with all logic and control included.
Three metal sleds slid along an 8 foot track. Mecca was to attach their game model trucks to the sleds. The model trucks travel up till a winner wins. The system will be triggered by water coming out of steering wheels that the contestants "drive with". The water hits a moving target that tells our unit to move the truck.
The unit comes complete with a diagnostic L.E.D. display for trouble shooting. And all connections are labeled to be intergraded into the front end by the Mecca folks.
WHAT DID WE LEARN ?
We can do unusual projects.
We can just do parts of projects if needed.
We work well with others.
We can include motorized movements.
We can create diagnostic LED displays.
We can make extreme logical sequences with relays.
Now we can use programmable micro controllers for logical controls.
