This paper presents a LabVIEW based security system which will give the security information like video, audio, pictures of the covered region. The system consists of a simple robot, carrying a wireless Infrared (IR) night vision camera, an obstacle sensor and a wireless transmitter/receiver section for driving the motors of the robot.
A DSP processor (NI speedy 33) used for controlling the motion of robot and processing the signal acquired from the robot. The video, sound acquisition and processing is realized in National Instrument (NI) LabVIEW programming environment. The advantages of using this software makes easy interface with the hardware, ease of learning, time saving and faster access to peripheral devices.
