Robot that autonomously identifies the faces of players before throwing the ball to them with a flywheel system

Project Gallery

3 week project to design an interactive catch-playing robot.   A   rotating drive base and an  OpenCV-based targeting mechanism  identify valid players and determine if they are ready using facial recognition and gaze tracking. When the player is identified and ready, a 3D printed flywheel system throws the ball to the waiting player and then changes direction to catch the ball  when the player throws it back.
