Monitoring of large outdoor areas requires
significant manpower, equipment, planning, and the
constant vigilance of security personnel. Ideally, we
would like to replace the individual human
responsibilities with automated solutions minimizing
both risk and cost if possible. Therefore, this paper
proposes a modular robotic system designed to
autonomously perform wide-area reconnaissance and
intruder tracking in indoor/outdoor environments. The
system employs a modular approach to the robotic
architecture using a concept called sensor "bricks."
Using these bricks, we utilize a multi-robot system to
maintain perimeter surveillance. A visual servo control
algorithm in conjunction with perimeter camera
emplacements is proposed to maximize overhead camera
