The TagBot is a simple pan & tilt robot (phidget) with tablet pc interface (cariomm/gtkmm). It can be outfitted with an output module such as a laser (or a long range spray can?), for accurate lasertagging applications. The software is complete but would require some coordinate transformations to be added for long-range applications. Currently x-y coordinates from the tablet are mapped 1:1 (ie wrongly) to the motor positions. It would make much more sense to transform the screen coordinates so that the tag ends up properly as the end-cap of a cone. This would probably require some location-dependent (ie angle to wall etc.) settings in the prefrences menu.

The code is here: Redmine sourcecode browser

git clone git://source.hacker.lu/tagbot.git
