Abstract: Recently, the continually evolving robot technology has contributed to the development of a variety of robot-using service models. In particular, the robot with the artificial intelligence may be utilized in various fields of the context awareness. Conventional CCTV is installed in a fixed form and it can transfer monitored images to a central server where they are stored in the server system. The monitoring and control processes must be performed at the server side. In this paper, an intelligent surveillance robot for which Internet of Things(IoT) is used to overcome the limitations of these existing CCTV is proposed. The proposed intelligent surveillance robot is called “SMART-I”, and it can perform monitoring and control remotely. Also a DVR server is included in the robot design for the transmission and processing of large image data. The prototype of SMART-I has been developed based on IoT, and both the app client and Web client have been implemented to provide the remote monitoring and control of the robot. SMART-I can be used as an active surveillance robot. While it monitors activities, it can detect abnormal contexts that are then notified to a security manager through the sending of alarm messages to a smartphone, allowing for a quick response to the potential risk. The developed IoT-based intelligent surveillance robot can perform monitoring activities in locations such as factories, offices, and industrial sites. SMART-I can be used as a user-friendly mobile robot that provides real-time monitoring and intelligent services according to the context awareness in a variety fields for an active performance of surveillance activities.
