Abstract

In the game of darts, players compete by aiming darts at the bullseye and other sections of the dart board, however to most untrained dart throwers, the variance between shots is very high. A robotic system that integrates computer vision to detect and locate the dart board, and a mechanical dart launcher will have better accuracy than a human in most cases. This projects seeks to create a low cost robotic dart launcher that anyone can replicate and build on. It will utilize OpenCV libraries in python, and an Arduino microcontroller connected to servos to control the dart launching and aiming of the robotic system.
