Abstract

We developed a visual system that is able to track the moving objects within a certain range of errors. The visual system is driven by two DC servo motors that are controlled by a computer based on the visual data obtained from a CCD video camera. The software to track the moving objects is developed based on the PWM of the DC motors. Also, the problems how to implement a fuzzy logic control method and a neural network in this system, are also considered in order to check the control performance of tracking. The fuzzy logic algorithm is a powerful control technique for nonlinear dynamical system and also the neural network could be implemented in this system. In this paper, we present configuration of tracking system developed in our laboratory, the control methods of the visual system and the experimental results are shown.
