Robot Plays Pool – ARpool


ar-pool

This is a pool playing robot – the ARPool, an augmented reality system for teaching the science of pool. The Deep Green robot was created with the purpose of playing a flawless game, allowing it to beat even the most skilled human players.

A ceiling-mounted Canon 350D tracks the position of all of the balls, in addition to another cue-mounted cam (for higher shot accuracy). Using a bunch of calculations, and a computer (probably more advanced than an Arduino), the Deep Green is able to strategize and play.
