[2010/11/16] 2010 Electrical Exhibition at the Seoul National University

Seungil You and Professor Songhwai Oh designed and implemented new concept of a home safety system using smartphones. When an object is chosen on the iPhone screen, a robot follows that object with a tracking algorithm based on a computer vision algorithm, and the iPhone screen shows an image from webcam on the robot. This system can help parents to protect their babies when they have to do other thing. Parents can track their babies status from a remote area using a  smartphone. In addition, elders can be protected by similar ways. This, so called a 'guardian robot system', was presented at the 2010 Electronics Exhibition at the Seoul National University, and won the third place award.
