This study integrates path planning, fuzzy theory, neural networks, image processing, range sensors, webcam, global navigation satellite system (GNSS), and real-time kinematic (RTK) positioning system into an intelligent wheeled mobile robot (WMR) for outdoor patrolling. The robot system uses ultrasound sensors, laser sensors, and fuzzy controllers to detect obstacles and avoid them. The starting position and the goal position of the WMR in an outdoor environment are given by the GNSS RTK positioning system. Real-time position correction of the robot is performed through the differential global positioning system. The robot system applies the ant algorithm and the Dijkstra algorithm to find the shortest path for patrol tasks. The convolutional neural network image processing is utilized to identify intruders that are appearing in the patrol path. When the WMR detects an intruder by the face detection and recognition methods, the robot captures the photo of this person by the webcam and acquires the location information of this person by the RTK positioning system. Then the WMR sends the location and photo of the intruder to the control center by Wi-Fi and asks for help.
