Original Abstract

At the beginning of this article, the authors address the main problems of todays remotely-operated reconnaissance robots. The re- connaissance robots Orpheus-AC, Orpheus-AC2 and Orpheus-Explorer, made in the Department of Control and Instrumentation (DCI), are then shortly described. Since all the described robotic systems use visual telep- resence as the main control technique, visual information from the robots surroundings is essential for the operator. For this reason, the authors make a fusion of data from a CCD (Charge-Coupled Device) color cam- era, and a thermovision camera to provide the operator with data in all visibility conditions, such as complete darkness, fog, smoke, etc.
