Abstract

The goal of this project is to design, construct, and implement a centralized system to control drone robots equipped with visible and infrared light sensors which systematically detect, track, and contain an "intruder." The drone robots and base station use custom-written software which allows wireless intercommunication and control between them via radios. Once the program commences, the robots are controlled autonomously by the base station; there is no human input, other than controlling the "intruder''s" trajectory.
