Raspberry Pi playing ZomBuster

Some time ago I had a course dealing with image analysis i.e. image segmentation, moments, colour detection, object recognition etc. As part of the course everyone had to make a project that showcased the theory we had been learning throughout the course. We were allowed to use OpenCV as the backbone for accessing the camera etc, but not allowed to use any of the built-in filters. Instead the goal was to implement the different algorithms ourself.

One day one of my friends was playing the Smartphone game ZomBuster. A screenshot of the gameplay can be seen below:

The goal of the game is to tap the lane with the zombie in it, in order to kill it. As the zombies are green and humans are blue I thought it would be a fun challenge to build a robot that could play the game autonomously for the course.

This also allowed me to use the 3D printer I had just bought at the time. For that reason I created a 3D model with all the needed components:
