Control the cannon rotation on the X (left - right), Z (up - down) axes and the force of the projectile to hit the target.
Each time a shot is fired, a sensor system will inform the PLC the distance in X and Z coordinates from the hit point to the target, so you must to calculate the exact X, Z cannon rotation and the firing force to hit the target.
To increase difficulty, every three hits on target, the system will change position to a random one.

PLC signals used:

Digital PLC Out 0: cannon Shoot
Analog PLC Out 0: cannon axis X rotation
Analog PLC Out 1: cannon axis Z rotation
Analog PLC Out 2: cannon shoot force
Analog PLC Inp 0: cannon axis X current rotation
Analog PLC Inp 1: cannon axis Z current rotation
Analog PLC Inp 2: hit X position from target
Analog PLC Inp 3: hit Z position from target
