In our high-tech society, robots are being used for more and more applications, from mundane household chores, to dangerous military missions, and even precise medical operations. Autonomous vehicles can be considered a kind of robot. For all of these applications, it is crucial that the robot is able to ‘see’. This project aims to detect targets surrounding a robot, and identify their state (bearing), thereby giving robots some form of ‘sight’. With the aid of a camera, images are obtained, and an algorithm is developed to process and extract information from them. This algorithm is tested on multiple targets, in multiple position (around), and at various distances from the camera. A software package for target detection and bearing estimation was also developed.
