With the growing popularity of archery, a system designed to help an archer achieve the best shot possible becomes necessary. The Automatic Range Finding Bow Sight is a system that consists of a single pin sight controlled by a servo motor. The servo motor controls the sight pin by rotating a drive wheel that will move the pin up or down. The sight pin movement is based on a reading obtained by a built-in rangefinder and speed data input by the user. This data will then be compared to programmed lookup tables in order to find the appropriate pin position. After the sight pin has been adjusted, the user should be confident they will hit their target.

  • Rangefinder will quickly obtain distance when triggered
  • The servo motor will accurately adjust the sight pin up or down
  • Interpolation between lookup table rows will ensure accurate movements
