Abstract

This research presents an automated defensive turret that has human detection capabilities even in low-light or nighttime conditions through the use of infrared technology. Motion detection through Python and Open CV is used to detect humans in the Area of Interest (AOI) shown covered by digital cameras than can become possible targets. The target detection can reach as far as 100 feet from the system. The turret can be operated on both automatic and manual control modes. In automatic control mode, the turret is triggered upon detection of the first human and then automatically fires continuously. On manual mode, the user has full control of the movements of the turret like the pan and tilt using the computer’s pointing device. The turret is also capable of continuously shooting the target it is tracking. During testing of the programs and hardware prototype, the targets were placed randomly in different distances from the turret. These tests were done in both standard and infrared modes of the camera. Results show that the turret can effectively operate in both automatic mode and manual control mode. This project aims to assist the Armed Forces during the clearing and defensive operations against national or international aggressors. © 2019, World Academy of Research in Science and Engineering.
