Child monitoring systems use many different technologies, such as camera systems, wireless technology using RFID sensors, and GPS systems. These systems are capable of remotely reporting the status of the children but not able to take actions based on the scenarios. On the other hand, a robotic child monitoring system will show advantages in taking actions to warn and possibly protect the child from danger. In this paper we present the design and experimental testing of a robotic child monitoring prototype system. The whole system consists of a Khepera robot, a host computer, the distraction/alarm circuitry and a testing table. The experimental testing results show that this prototype system fulfills the requirement of finding and following the baby prop and also taking certain actions when the baby prop approaches danger area.
