oa Interim : Interdisciplinary Journal - A technique for tracking an indoor unmanned aerial or automated guided vehicle using a stationary camera and hue colour characteristics

 

Abstract

Today's industries are based on an automated workplace. These automated workplaces are efficient, reconfigurable and intelligent automated environments. They are filled with technology, robotics, Automated Guided Vehicle (AGV) and, or Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAV) etc. For full automation will one need to effectively track an object, unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV) or automated guided vehicle (AGV). Effective tracking of vehicles can be used for control. This could result in less hardware on the craft that leads to a longer battery life, a bigger pay load or more processing power.


This system track by using a stationary colour camera placed at an optimal placing in the automated workplace. The vehicle or objects are painted in two colours (colour A and colour B) that are not present in the automated workplace. The images from the camera are hue colour filtered to extract only the object or vehicle. The area, placement in frame and relationship between colour A and B are used for position and determine the orientation of AGV, UAV or object.
