Abstract:

This paper presents an application of vision-based object recognition to create a leaderfollower 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 leaders movements while maintaining a fixed following distance.
