Tracking Robotic Car

Robotic car can track a falling balloon and pop it.


An autonomous balloon tracking vehicle capable of tracking a balloon and terminating it.


Based on Raspberry Pi, we create a tracking robot that can track a falling red balloon and try to pop the balloon before it lands. In order to recognize the balloon, we implemented the color detection by OpenCV. The precise and stable locomotive of the robot, which includes camera tilt kit and two DC motors, has been controlled via PID algorithm. Besides, leveraging python’s multiprocessor modules tremendously decreases image processing latency in real-time.
