SURVEILLANCE SYSTEM USING A MOBILE ROBOT EMBEDDED IN A WIRELESS SENSOR NETWORK

Syed Irtiza Ali, Baerbel Mertsching

Abstract

In this paper, we proposed a surveillance system for guard robots to perform indoor navigation using a wireless sensor network. The aim is to provide a generic surveillance solution for multiple indoor scenarios. The multi-sensor based localization method for the robot has been employed to overcome the shortcomings of the standard AMCL based localization technique. It is also helpful in dealing with sensor limitations. The proposed strategy has been implemented and tested within lab environments. The results show a fair reduction in processing time required by convergence of localization process.
