We illustrate a surveillance system that uses a distributed vision system to detect the presence of unidentified objects in an off-limit area.

Abstract

We illustrate a surveillance system that uses a distributed vision system to detect the presence of unidentified objects in an off-limit area. The system is composed by some static vision agents and a few mobile robots that cooperate to track the unknown intruders. The mobile robots can “go and seek” for intruders in areas occluded to the monitoring system, or can patrol areas outside of the field of view of the fixed sensors. Both the static vision agents and the mobile robots utilize omnidirectional vision sensors, with custom designed mirrors. In our past research work, we have explored the feasibility of such a distributed system and the design characteristics of its components. In this paper, we show a preliminary integration of its components, that is under development by IT+Robotics Srl, a new Spin-off of the University of Padua (Italy), for applying the resulting products to the service robotics field
