Abstract: The September 11 in United States bombings have brought about the urgency and importance of protecting key installations in our own country. Unmanned Ground Vehicles can be made to suit this role guarding these installations against intruders 24 hours, 7 days a week. As such, this report serves to investigate the opportunities and challenges of developing a robotic system that fills this purpose. One problem identified for the system is locating the position of the robot. The approach undertaken is this project is to use computer vision techniques to track the position of the robot and command the robot to travel to the desired position. This method offers many advantages, one of which is the robot need not carry extra devices which drains power and hence improving the operational time before the UGV requires re-fuel or recharge. Existing surveillance systems can easily leverage on this system and thus greatly increases the security of the premises.
