Room Searching Performance Evaluation for the JagaBotTM Indoor Surveillance Robot


This paper reports the evaluation of the performance of room searching capability for the JagaBotTM Indoor Surveillance Robot. The ultimate objective of the JagaBotTM is to be applied as an event actor, inspecting the secured environment automatically and feeding the dynamic view of the surrounding to remote user. It can also be used to communicate with persons inside the monitored area. A web service based instruction panel was used to command the JagaBotTM to designated rooms. The JagaBotTM then navigates itself to the room automatically, scanning for the QR code marker attached to room door, tracking a designated trail of lines through its QR code and line tracking camera. The result of this room’s searching procedure shows that the JagaBotTM achieved its objective of correct room finding in favorable time. A 100% correct search result was obtained with an average velocity of 0.1748 m/s under the current setting.
