Abstract/Artist Statement

This project, Laser Warfare (based on the project Drone Wars), is a game system in which each player will use a drone or quadcopter to shoot other players’ drones. The game is based on the original laser tag and uses many similar concepts and devices. Laser Warfare will operate on a communication network based around radio frequency Xbee transceivers. The purpose of this project is to pursue a topic of interest to group members that will require the use of knowledge gained from this educational institution to design, solve, and build a large scale project. The resultant design of Laser Warfare was tested and a proof-of-concept prototype constructed. The testing that was performed shows that the design will work, and follows from the final prototype of the project. Furthermore, this project includes summaries of all related research, testing, commitment to the project, and all potential design alternatives explored.
