Problem statement: With an increased demand for security and limited numbers of trained security personnel, some security mangers have a lot of ground to police and limited staff to cover it. To compensate for shortages of security staff and to reduce the stress of security managers, we have developed an intelligent patrol robot system called "OkiKoSenPBX1". The system integrates a variety of sensors to gather environmental information and to detect abnormal events including intruders. Approach: In our approach, the route planning procedure was based on determining a sequence of intermediary goal points or coordinates x and y composing the robot trajectory. Results: A qualitative running experimental evaluation had been performed on the 1st floor of the Okinawa national college of technology as a preliminary practical implementation and its real-time performance was excellent, where a student like-guard can take control of the camera pan and tilt functions remotely. Conclusion: The real-time performance of the developed system that can leave security personnel hands-free for other important tasks is an irresistible system that can be put into practical use in a public offices facility, manufacturing facilities and various construction sites-everywhere there’s a need for advanced frontline security.
