This document is in fact a report on a research-executive project about tracing, chasing and capturing a moving object in a region by a mechanical user (ROBOT).
The hardware includes a computer, a CCD camera, an image receiver (FRAME GRABBER), a mechanical user, a controller and an infrared transmitter. The software utilized in this research project was designed in VC ++ and NQC environments, and included recording and capturing images, image processor and data extraction, information analysis, decision making, sending of commands and intermediate software.
The general objective of this research is the practical implementation of Mobile Mapping in real time or on-line mode. All geometric and explanatory information of the field of operation are recorded and stored in computer memory. The CCD camera is positioned in certain locations and takes images from the area. Camera deployment does not have much effect on the overall performance of this research. The locations can be fixed or movable.
Images are received at a specified time interval and are temporarily recorded in the computer memory. In the processor section, the received images are examined and the required information is extracted. This information is analyzed, and if it is determined that an unknown body has entered the area, it is identified and the object's position is communicated to the command section, and this section sends the proper command to mechanical user according to received information. Then the mechanical user moves toward the body to arrest it. Simultaneously with imaging, the information in the memory is revised and updated.
