Automatic Targeting Sentry Turret for Distributed Systems

  • Chapter

Part of the Studies in Computational Intelligence book series (SCI,volume 481)

Abstract

Today most popular systems are constructed with the idea of collaboration. In software we can see a drastic increase of cloud-oriented applications, in electronics more devices are designed with CAN and Ethernet communications, and in robotics and defense whole systems are linked as unmanned sensor and agent networks. This paper describes the fundamental design principles of an automatic sentry turret in a distributed multi-agent system. The work is focused on the design of the turret system itself and the system architecture for distributed robotic applications. The papers is divided into the following sections: introduction, turret construction, system architecture, automatic target detection and aiming, and summary. Module.
