Electronic Shoot-Out Game
David Grimm and Scarlet Halabi
Advisor: Steve Gutschlag

The senior project is an Electronic Shoot-Out Game that simulates the 19th Century gunfighting practice. It involves laser signal transmission, reception, and processing. The game is composed of two main systems: a Laser system and a programmable Microprocessor. 

The Laser system is embedded in the weapon (a revolver--6 shots), and consists of a transmitter and receiver. The gun uses a class 1 laser that transmits a 1kHz modulated pulse, and if enough energy is detected by the receiver in the 1kHz region, a hit is registered by the control circuitry. At that instant, the control circuitry disables the trigger in the weapon, and the notification of the hit is transmitted to the microprocessor. The microprocessor keeps track of the shots being fired (limit is 6 shots), records the number of hits scored on each player, and records which player got hit.
