Step 2: Arduino

(http://cdn.instructables.com/FAJ/200F/GJHV96KZ/FAJ200FGJHV96KZ.LARGE.jpg)

What's an Arduino? ...and how do you pronounce that, anyway? An Arduino is a microcontroller. It plugs into a computer with a USB cord. On the Arduino board, shown below, there is an ATMega328 microchip, as well as 14 digital input/outputs, 6 analog inputs, and a USB port. That's not all, but it's everything that you will need to know about, to build a sentry gun. For complete details on the Arduino board, go to http://arduino.cc/en/Main/ArduinoBoardUno (http://arduino.cc/en/Main/ArduinoBoardUno). You will use the Arduino board to take commands from the computer, and drive the servo motors as the commands dictate. Also, it will provide you with hookups for expanding your own ciruit easily afterwards. Where to buy your own Arduino board (http://www.arduino.cc/en/Main/Buy)

Step 3: Servo Motors

(http://cdn.instructables.com/FC3/LSSQ/GJHV96LQ/FC3LSSQGJHV96LQ.LARGE.jpg)

(http://cdn.instructables.com/F4O/TV49/GJHV96LL/F4OTV49GJHV96LL.LARGE.jpg)

To control the movement of the gun, you will use 2 servo motors. The "pan" servo controls the side-to-side movement of the gun. The "tilt" servo controls the up-down movement of the gun. Your remaining servo motor will be used to squeeze the trigger of your gun. For heavy guns, such as the paintball gun shown below, you might want to get some stronger servo's.
(http://cdn.instructables.com/FC3/LSSQ/GJHV96LQ/FC3LSSQGJHV96LQ.LARGE.jpg)

Step 4: Constructing the Base

(http://cdn.instructables.com/FZA/FMLZ/GJHV96V0/FZAFMLZGJHV96V0.LARGE.jpg)

Now is time to put everything together. How you do this is largely up to you. Some design considerations: The gun should be balanced on the tilt servo. Find the gun's center of gravity, and mount it at that point. This is so the servo dosn't have to waste energy trying to keep the gun level. IMPORTANT: when the servo has no power supplied to it, the gun should tilt freely, and when you move it with your hand it should not return to level - rather it should stay right where you let go. Spend a lot of time getting this balance just right, it is a major factor in the effectiveness of your finished sentry. Stability is key. You want a strong, solid sentry. Vibration will cause a lot of issues with the camera later, if you don't suppress it now. I'm not going to teach you how to build well, but keep in mind that screws and bolts are better than nails, nails are better than zip ties, zip ties are better than staples, and even staples are better than duct tape. The webcam must be solidly mounted to the base. You want it close to the gun, but the gun barrel can't ever move into the camera's view - it will see that as a target. Also, the webcam should be as solid as possible - vibration from the servo's and gun firing will mess it up. Depending on the expected use for the sentry (airsoft? paintball? water jet? laser?), you may need to add a durable compartment to hold the electronics. Finally: tripods are cool, but they can be prone to a lot of shaking if built badly, or if you use a flimsy camera tripod. Surveyor's tripods are great for sentry guns they are heavy, stable, and often adjustable too.

Step 5: Wiring

(http://cdn.instructables.com/FQI/J1X7/GJHV96TW/FQIJ1X7GJHV96TW.LARGE.jpg)

(http://cdn.instructables.com/FJN/ZADX/GJHV96WA/FJNZADXGJHV96WA.LARGE.jpg)

Arduino : The Arduino connects to the computer through the USB A to B cord. This also powers the Arduino. Various other things wire to the Arduino: Here's a wiring schematic (https://3697760062247513407-a1802744773732722657-ssites.googlegroups.com/site/projectsentrygun/downloads/Schematic_v4.png? attachauth=ANoY7cr9iXELM5d7fhbujWGsoRAB_4czqeVwdKwrGHrGTOmrwMtQR_T4y1wLwZ7caUoFZjo66LQ34rwHdF5dmGl2BaEK2554qwJVnKLNAwa4QbMgV3U0Ghm40_n7ILQIxksbUk7ydwlnbH9bynRcOSoQl_q2OYaXnoKf60EEI4CuglcgvtlWe_Oi60M0AD3KaweJVmR_gradU3i6eikUfbKK2bOxNqEMPjzMKNF7HANdUfDhdJY%3D&attredirects=0) , and you can get a sentry shield (https://sites.google.com/site/projectsentrygun/products) if you want an easy solution.

Servos : You will need a seperate power source for your servo's. I reccomend 4 C-cell or Dcell batteries, wired in series to make 6V. Check the data sheet to find the power consumption for your servo's! Servo motors have three wires: power, ground, and signal. Each servo's power wire is typically red, and should be connected to the (+) wire from your servo power

source. The ground wire is typically black or brown and should be connected to a ground pin on the Arduino board, and to the (-) wire of your power source. The signal wire is typically yellow, orange or white and should be connected as follows: The x-axis servo's signal wire goes to the Arduino's digital I/O pin 3, the y-axis servo to pin 4, and the trigger servo to pin 6. You can also add some optional switches and LED's , but they are not necessary: -USB status indicator LED to digital I/O pin 5 -firing indicator LED to digital I/O pin 2 -a "power switch" between the (+) from the servo power source and the servo's, to turn off the servo's and save battery power -a "safety switch" between the (+) from the servo power source, and the trigger servo, (but after the 'power switch'), to turn off the firing functionality easily and quickly (in an emergency) -a 'reload' switch, wired between +5V from the Arduino and digital I/O pin 7, to set the gun in a programmable position convenient for reloading

Solder everything if you can. If you want, make your own arduino 'shield' with all the conections. This allows you to "plug in" the Arduino, and "unplug" it when it is needed elsewhere, without losing track of which wires go to which pins.

Step 6: Software

(http://cdn.instructables.com/F7T/K8BF/GJHV978X/F7TK8BFGJHV978X.LARGE.jpg)

Now you have your sentry gun built, the wiring finished, and no doubt you want it to do something! Before you plug your Arduino into your computer, go download the Arduino IDE (http://arduino.cc/en/Main/Software) . If you have a Diecimila or older board, set the Power Jumber to USB. Now, plug your Arduino in - the green Power LED on the Arduino should light up, and the orange LED might flash a few times. Good job!

The Arduino IDE is what you will use to load the Arduino program onto your board. However, you will need the seperate, Processing IDE to run the computer side of the code. This does the camera tracking, and sends commands to the Arduino. Go download the Processing IDE (http://processing.org/download/) .

Open both Processing IDE and Arduino IDE. They should look very similar.

With a little bit of trial-and-error on the code, you should have a working sentry in no time! So get started typing!

Just kidding, of course. The next thing you need to do is download the JMyron, blobDetection, and controlP5 libraries (http://processing.org/reference/libraries/) from processing.org. Find the link to each library on that page. The instructions for downloading each one can be found by clicking on it's link.

You are ready to go get the code! Download the latest version it from my website (https://sites.google.com/site/projectsentrygun/downloads) . After you have saved it to your computer, unzip the folder, and follow the directions in the strategically placed README.txt files.

Open the Arduino code in the Arduino IDE. Make sure you have selected the proper board and serial port from the Tools menu. Next, click 'Verify', wait for it to say "done compiling", then click 'Upload'. The RX and TX LED's on the Arduino board should pulse a little, then stop.

Congrats! You have finished programming the Arduino! Plug in your webcam. Install the drivers, if you haven't already. Now, open the Processing code in the Processing IDE. Click 'Run', and watch the magic happen!

Of course, for many of you this will not work on the first try. Don't get upset, it's normal. Pop me an email (mailto:sentryGun53@gmail.com?subject=Urgent%20%20sentry%20gun%20code%20support&body=Describe%20the%20issue%2C%20including%20any%20errors%20returned%20by%20the%20softw with any problems, or leave a comment below.

A tip for Windows 7 users, from ljfa321: If you are getting this error when you try to run: processing.app.debug.RunnerException: UnsatisfiedLinkError: D:\Software\processing-1.2.1\libraries\JMyron\library\JMyron.dll: Can't find dependent libraries: "Reason : Windows 7 doesn't come with MicroSoft C libraries, which were normally include in the other (older) Windoes system. This means there are two files missing in the Windows 7 system: MSVCP71.DLL and Msvcr71.dll Solution : Download these two files from here: http://www.addictivetips.com/?attachment_id=38105 (http://www.addictivetips.com/? attachment_id=38105) AND! For Windows 7 32-bit OS: put both dll files inside Windows/System32 folder For Windows 7 64-bit OS: put both dll files inside Windows/SysWOW64 folder."

Step 7: Using the Software

(http://cdn.instructables.com/FS0/A979/GJHV97CS/FS0A979GJHV97CS.LARGE.jpg)

When you run the code, two windows should pop up. One is the Webcam View and the other is the Control Panel. In Manual Mode, you can aim and fire by pointing and clicking on the webcam view. In Autonomous Mode, the software takes over, and your gun gains a life of it's own! Give it a little time to adjust to the background, and then it will shoot at anything that enters its view. Play around with the other functions as well - Auto/Semi-auto, hide camera view, etc.

Calibrating - your servo and camera arrangement is probably unique, so you will need to calibrate it the first time. You can do this by adjusting the values of xMin, xMax, yMin, and yMax, at the beginning of the code. Play around with them untill you have the gun aiming where you point the mouse on the webcam view. A useful tool to do this is to watch the numbers scrolling by at the bottom of the Processing IDE while you run the code. You may also need to calibrate the servo positions set in the Arduino code: To set the reloading position, change these lines : if(digitalRead(7) == HIGH) { xPosition = 110 ; yPosition = 135 ; fire = 0; }

To set the home position (no USB communication), change these lines : if(idle) { idleCounter++; if(idleCounter > 10000) { analogWrite(5, 50); delay(250); digitalWrite(5, LOW); idleCounter = 0; } else{ digitalWrite(5, LOW); } xPosition = 110 ; yPosition = 100 ; fire = 0; }

To set the 'squeezed' and 'not squeezed' positions for the trigger servo, change these lines : void Fire(int selector) { if(selector == 1) { fireTimer++; if(fireTimer >=0 && fireTimer <= triggerTravelMillis) { trigger.write( 90 );

digitalWrite(2, HIGH); } if(fireTimer > triggerTravelMillis && fireTimer < 1.5*triggerTravelMillis) { trigger.write( 140 ); digitalWrite(2, LOW); } if(fireTimer >= 1.5*triggerTravelMillis) { fireTimer = 0; } } if(selector == 3) { trigger.write( 90 ); digitalWrite(2, HIGH); } } void ceaseFire(int selector) { if(selector == 1) { fireTimer = 0; trigger.write( 140 ); digitalWrite(2, LOW); } if(selector == 3) { trigger.write( 140 ); digitalWrite(2, LOW); } }
