This is a project for the Computer Engineering Lab Course aimed at implementing a system based on a mobile pointer that heads to a Jedi knight trainee. When the laser mounted on the pointer fires, the trainee should parry it with a sword.

This work is done as part of the ROBOWII effort in the Jedi Training Robogame line, and extends the results obtained by other projects in the direction of better drone behavior and better playability.

The main revolution in comparison to the previous versions is the drone itself. It is no more a mechanical arm attached to a table, but a real flying quadricopter ((A.R.Parrot Drone)

The project works relying on both the official SDK (which is pretty complicate to understand) and the openCV 2.1 libraries for image processing.

Diego Martinoia is attending the high-level intelligence and image processing, while Daniele Calandriello is dealing with the tedious SDK - drone communication issues.

The player is supposed to wear a game uniform (currently experimental) to both identify him and have the player "feel" the game. The sword used is a real-glowing light-blue wii-lightsaber accessory (as in the original scene from the movie).
