Do you remember a game called Tank Wars? This is an attempt to make a physical version of that classic arcade game. You, the player drive an Arduino powered tank and fire a laser at a target.
This project uses an Arduino to control a tank through a web page. The tank is driven from a control panel on a web page, that is communicated to over a WiFly. The tank uses a Parallax Ping to avoid obstacles, a servo for aiming the turret and a Tamiya tank platform for locomotion.
Why did I make this you ask? Because like everyone else I wanted to make a tank that fired lasers.
