Control tanks from a distance using
only a computer and a camera!
• Objectives: Save people from a nuclear
meltdown using unmanned tanks.
• Analysis: Using certain programs, we must
learn to use unique commands and control
tanks from a distance.
• Results: Lots of practice should allow us to
complete the project quickly and
• We will be completing a course using
• In the course, we’ll have to save people
from a nuclear crisis with a limited amount
of time, and pick up bonus points along
• We’ll have to control the tanks from a
distance using only a computer program
and a camera.
• We were introduced to a computer program,
called the Fourth, that allows us to move the
tanks using certain commands.
• By learning these commands, such as go-
distance, spin, and straight-line motion, and
becoming familiar with the program, we’ll be
able to complete the course.
• The same process is used to control unmanned
tanks from a base and rovers on the moon or
Overcoming the Odds
•People are trapped in the debris of a nuclear meltdown,
and we must use an existing AVL tank to rescue them.
•The only available navigation is through a non-adjustable
•The AVL must follow a certain path, or risk being
damaged. (endangering lives…)
•Goal: to rescue as many people as possible (including in
the danger zone) and find helpful information concerning
•Using mathematics, we have found constants adjusting the speed and
rotations of the AVL treads.
•Using Ktsf and Ktpi, we adjusted the tanks to finish the mission in the
least time possible.
•Using a program called Fourth, we control the tank from a distance.
Analysis of Results
•We will accomplish our goals through teamwork and
many hours of preparation.
•The constants, Ktsf and Ktpi, shows us the best
possible fit for the tank that accomplishes the goal.
•This advanced technology will save many
•Based on the success of the prototypes, we
believe the full-scale models will also be
