Electronics and Robotics – Robotic Vision System

My RVS – Robotic Vision System

During my study at university I developed and created a prototype robot that operated in angular coordinate system. Robot has binocular vision system that allows it to determine simple objects and shapes. Also a face recognition algorythm had developed by me. Robot has an independent control system and simple AI that allows it to take decision about it’s position and next move independently without assistance of operator. If robot notes a human face in front of it’s, it will move to human and starts to talk. A vision system that I have developed can simultaneously follows up on 3 human faces. I have developed and make all mechanics, electronics and programming for this robot.

During working out…

Servo’s H-bridges

Control system

First test

Start position

Face detection test

Main joint with 3 DOF

With me


How robot sees

Robot has 2 eyes with built-in digital cameras. Control system is a computer with Windows operation system and my own program system. PC connection unit designed on FT232BM for providing USB protocol, and on 74HC595 serial to parallel shift registers for providing 40 bits parallel bus for driving servo’s H-bridges.

Here are two small video clips I recorded during developing. Sorry, no sound…

Video 1, AVI, 2.7 Mb

Video 2, AVI, 740 kb

Robot has pulse power supply on 3, 5, 12 and 18 volts.

My science work had deep resonance in national media (newspapers, science journals, TV).

“Science and Innovations” journal cover
