Detailed Specifications
The Mercenary is the first of its kind: A robotic paintball turret that can track and shoot at players without any human operator. An on-board computer processes real-time video, acquires targets using motion and color processing, and then tracks them using predictive logic techniques. Players can interact with The Mercenary by setting options through an on-board LCD display, or through an interactive target. User adjustable settings include: rate of fire, burst modes, turret aggression, and scenario modes. One scenario includes team-based play by use of colored jerseys.
