Abstract : This paper presents an application of vision-based object recognition to create a leader/follower behaviour in mobile robots. A system is developed which makes use of the Scale Invariant Feature Transform (SIFT) algorithm to recognize a leader robot or human. The follower robot then uses PID control to track the leader's movements while maintaining a fixed following distance.
