Hard & Soft 2002
Contest title:
"Intelligent alarm system based on image processing"

A WebCam connected to the USB port of a PC will view a defined area.

The system will be controlled by a PIC based entry module designed and built by each team.  During the contest the control of the system will be exclusively via this module.

As shown on the diagram, the camera will be mounted about 1.2m from the floor and the objects placed on a table  about 0,75m high.

 

Alarm system should have two levels of alarm: warning alarm (level 1 alarm) and normal alarm (level 2 alarm).

Stage 1:

    a) Small object (~1 cm diameter) provided by organisers is placed on the table. System should detect and indicate motion  (alarm level 1 should turn on).

    b) Larger object (~5 cm diameter) provided by organisers is placed on the table. System should detect and indicate motion  (alarm level 2 should turn on).

Stage 2: Member of team disables alarm, enters protected area, places an object of their choice (with dimensions not greater than 25 cm) on the table and resets the alarm.

Stage 3: Attempt by a person from opposing team to enter area from the side (see drawing) and remove the object. The level 1 alarm should turn on while the person enters protected area and alarm level 2 should sound when person touches or tries to remove an object. System should ignore small objects (about 1 cm diameter). The person is not allowed to use any tools except their hands including any type of light sources to saturate web cam.

Stage 4: Repeat Stage 3, but with a number of people beyond the buffer zone but in front of the camera.

Would all teams write a short report (2 pages) and include a copy of their software. Report should be submitted on Friday morning before the competition starts.
