Development, Fabrication, and Experimentation of the Shot Trajectory and Precision of an Automated Basketball Arm
The objective is to design, fabricate, and test an automated basketball shooting arm that can consistently make free throw shots. The goal of the project is to be able to make at least 90% of free throw shot attempts while replicating the optimal shooting form of a human shot with realistic arm motions and lengths all on a mobile cart. A laser sensor will be utilized to detect the distance away the arm is from the hoop so this distance can be implemented into a custom-developed computer program via the analog output. The program will then use this distance and player height to calculate the corresponding outputs to facilitate the required motion to achieve the desired shot. This project is a senior capstone project for the Electro-Mechanical Engineering Technology (EMET) program at Penn State Altoona.
