The CMU Vision System is based on the object tracking technology developed at Carnegie Mellon University.
The CMU-01 Pro software, feature above, is included in the package. This system will allow one to explore all the vision tracking properties of the CMU-01 camera, using the serial port of a Windows Based PC. Connection of the CMU camera requires one serial port. For additional tracking features to be utilized, such as real time tracking via SMC-04 servo motor controller requires a second available serial port on the PC.
To fully utilize this system the Windows PC requires two available serial ports.
- Robotic X-Y axis Base
- SMC-04 Servo Motor Controller
- CMU-01 Camera
- CMU-01 Pro Software

Servobotics Artifical Vision Object Tracking Robot
The C-Bot tracker is based on the object tracking technology developed at Carnegie Mellon for the CMU-01 Camera.
The C-bot will track an object in X,Y and Z directions. A up and down servo motor tracks in the Y direction. Horizontal (X) and distance (Z) directions are driven by two continuous rotation servo motors.
The C-Bot will track any object placed in front of the CMU camera lens. It will track in the x direction by turning left or right to follow an object. In the z direction, the C-bot will stay a predetermine distance away. If the target moves away, the C-bot will follow a target until it reaches a predetermined distance away from the object where it will stop. If the object is moved closer to the C-bot than the predetermined distance, the C-bot will back away from the object.
C-Bot has an on board LCD screen to communicate to the user. In testing mode the LCD helps determine which object makes a good target and provides data on how well that target tracks in the X,Y and X axis.
In the run mode, the LCD provides instructions for target capture only, and then LCD communication is discontinued while the C-Bot tracks its target.
