Project Name:
Dragon Detector

Description:
My entry into the DragonBoard competition. A passive infra red sensor triggers the system to take a photo with the Webcam. OpenCV is used to analyse the picture to look for Dragons. If Dragons are detected then the system sends a notification via the IFTTT Maker API which in turn notifies the user via their smart phone.
Simple defenses are activated in the form of flashing RGB LEDs.
To save time the original project used Rob Ives excellent cardboard knight but this has now been swapped with a 3D printed model which moves using a servo.
