Abstract

This paper presents our development on mobile robot in charge of security in an office environment. The developed robot uses curiosity on environmental change for threat detection. The platform used to develop the security robot is the ‘WITH’ mobile robot [1], imported from Kitakyushu Institute of Technology Japan. Within the environment of a research office, the WITH security robots capability has been tested on threat detection, programmable security navigation and threat tracking. The results achieved from the tests have been highlighted below: (1) Environment curiosity modelling: this allows for more dynamic threat detection than object recognition method, (2) Programmable navigation system: enables multi-points security monitoring.
