The PiTank is a web controller tank built for a competition at my school’s robotics club. The project took about two weeks to complete with all 5 team members participating in various aspects. Its main projectile are ping pong balls (up to 3).The firing mechanism is based on a spud gun. The PiTank is controlled using a web browser and is capable of real-time video streaming. It is powered by a Raspberry Pi and an Arduino, along with a few other components.
