Controlling the Distance Between the Robot and Target During the Tracking Process

Wael R. Abdulmajeed, Faik Kadhem


The tracking process of dynamic target has been played a significant role in industrial environment especially in military industrial, medical and surgical applications, dinger seeking and automatic control cars.In this paper implemented mobile robot and visionary system with two parts the first one is 3D Camera ( Kinect ) fixed on the mobile robot with computer connection . the kinect Camera installation on computer have been install series of open source software respectively . This work involves constructing integrated in MATLAB program automatically. It depends on a new approach in analyzing the robotic environment by a Kinect. The approach uses colors to detect and recognize the locations object and target.By analysis and processing the image captured by 3D Camera (Kinect) in computer are detection the target in the image, find it's center and measure the depth from robot to target .The calculated depth and angle from image processing in computer is transmitting from computer to robot by using wireless unit and finally the robot go to this location. Finally by using specific algorithm can be controlling the distance between robot and target.The second part of visionary system is a WebCamera fixed in the roof of the working environment to detect the target and robot. The instantaneous distance between robot and target in each frame is finding by WebCam.
