Building Monitoring System Using RFID and Mobile Robot

The collaborative monitoring system with RFID sensor tag and the mobile robot is proposed. The proposed system consists of three systems: RFID sensor network system, Remote robot controlsystem and Integration control system. The sensor network continuously monitors the surrounding of sensor tags while the mobile robot moves around for periodic inspection.  When certain sensor tag measured abnormal information, the integrated control system commands the mobile robot to particularly check around the area. We implement the system for Water Leak Detection in a ceiling inside a building. In this research, we equips the mobile robot with a thermography to find heat of evaporation by the detailed temperature distribution. This technique is evaluated in demonstration experiment.
