Smart Target

Created on 28 Nov 2015

Smart Archery Target

We joined the archery club during our freshman year and we have found that as beginners, there is a lot to learn, but it is hard to make progress without a skilled archer there to give you immediate feedback and provide a lot of individual attention. This inspired our idea for the smart target which would give you immediate feedback on your round of shoots and how you can improve. For example, it would tell you the speed of the arrow on impact, the angle at which it hit, and what your score would be based on where you hit. The target would also store this information from various shoots and track your progress and give you feedback on how to improve. Though the target is designed specifically for archery, it can be demoed with other objects.

Wednesday: As of today we have all of the hardware done (Yay!!!!). We are currently working on interpreting the data from the distance sensors and coming up with an algorithm.
