Abstract [en]

The usage of infrared technology was previously only used for military use, such as heat seeking missiles. It has now become a technology that is common for everyday use since it has become less expensive.

The objective of this thesis is to find out if heat is an effective way of tracking objects. This was made with the use of an IR-thermometer since it is able to measure heat from distances. In order to do this, a robot that moves towards the warmest, detectable heat source was constructed. The results of the robot’s performance clearly showed that the method has potential since it could sense and track the object’s location.

Abstract [sv]

Användandet av infraröd teknologi var förut endast för militärt bruk, som till exempel värmesökande missiler. Det har numera blivit en teknologi som är vanligt för vardagligt bruk eftersom teknologin har blivigt billigare.

Målet med denna avhandling är att ta reda på om värme är en effektiv metod för att spåra objekt. Detta utfördes med hjälp av en IR-termometer eftersom den kan mäta värme från avstånd.

För att göra detta konstruerades en robot som rör sig mot den varmaste, detekterbara värmekällan. Resultatet av robotens utförande visade att metoden har potential eftersom den kunde känna och spåra objektet.
