This paper presents the design and implementation of a home surveillance robot with self-recharging capabilities. The proposed robot has an ARM based hardware platform and a WinCE operating system. A docking algorithm based on the information fusion of encoders, electronic compasses and infrared sensors is proposed to realize the self-recharging capabilities. The simulation results of the docking progress show that the proposed algorithm is feasible and effective for the robot to return to the docking station successfully.
