Abstract

This study presents a real-time line tracking application based on web robot vision. The application is implemented with the help of Web-SUN robot platform specially designed for research and development. Real-time images were processed with the support libraries. The processes such as monitoring, tele-control, parameter adjustment, and remote-reprogramming were implemented on the designed platform through standard Internet browser without any additional software. A projection-based line tracking algorithm and conventional PID control algorithm are used in study. Line tracking experiments are performed on a test track drawn by red tape on floor which includes curves and corners in laboratory environment. In this study, our real-time line tracking experiments was completed smoothly in 10 tours on the test track with a maximum deviation of 12 cm. (C) 2009 Wiley Periodicals, Inc.
