    Visual sensor system

    A visual sensor system (turret from HL2):

    [​IMG]

    Rear parts painted:

    [​IMG]

    Rear parts assembled:

    [​IMG]

    Originally, this part has to detect intruders in its sight line. I used a domestic proximity IR sensor and controller with RGB-led.

    [​IMG]

    RGB-led status (depending of the systems state):
    • continuous green – no intrusion detected (no target)
    • flashing red – intrusion possibility detected (searching target)
    • continuous red – intrusion detected (target identified)


    Generally, visual sensor system looks like outdoor camera with IR-backlight:

    [​IMG]

    Assembled and mounted:
