MOBILE AIDED SURVEILLANCE SYSTEM (MASS) is a mobile phone controlled mini robot based on 3G technology. The robot has an integrated 3G mobile phone with video camera which enables it to be used as an advanced video surveillance system. Surveillance is the monitoring of the behaviour, activities, or other changing information, usually of people. It most usually refers to observation of individuals or groups by government organizations.
The word surveillance may be applied to observation from a distance by means of electronic equipment, or interception of electronically transmitted information. The MASS can be manually controlled from any location in the world by making a call to the mobile phone attached to the robot. Real-time surveillance is possible with the help of high speed 3G technology. A highly secured system can be developed from the MASS by including an encrypt data transmission network.
The robot can be easily charged with the help of a charging port provided in the robot. Due to its low power consumption and high efficient batteries, the robot can be operated continuously for long hours. MASS can also be used as an auto navigation device. For surveillance with the help of auto navigation the robot should be placed in a predetermined closed track. The robot will continue in the auto navigation mode until the user intervenes.
The robot is very useful to governments and law enforcement to maintain social control, recognize and monitor threats, and prevent or investigate criminal activity. We have made the system such that it is easily modifiable to suite various requirements. Being cost effective and user friendly, its application will be wide.
