Physical Description

born digital

abstract
An actuating device was designed and constructed for use with an existing model paintball marker. Requirements for the design include portability, response time, size and durability. The prototype allows the operator to actuate and fire a paintball marker remotely via wireless a radio frequency signal. Two step motors provide both the azimuth and vertical actuation of the paintball marker. Two microcontrollers control the step motors, with input from a third remote microcontroller. Feedback to the operator is given in the form of video. The device is capable of full continuous azimuth rotation due to the unique positioning of the tank supplying gas to the marker and an electric rotary couple. This presentation will elaborate on several aspects of the design process and the current prototype. Possible improvements to the design will also be discussed.
