Abstract

PURPOSE:To facilitate easy tracking of infrared rays with a robot by providing plural infrared-ray emitting element into a ball-shaped case so that all directions can be covered. CONSTITUTION:The size of a case 13 of oscillation part is set in response to the inner diameter of a ball-shaped case 11 so that each corner part of the case 13 has a contact with the inner surface of the case 11. Thus the case 13 can be held stably within the case 11 even though the case 11 is rolled. An infrared-ray emitting element 15 such as an infrared-ray LED, etc. is attached to the center part of each wall surface of the case 13. These six elements 15 are driven to emit the infrared rays in all directions of the case 11. In this case, a visible light emitting element 16 is also driven to show that the element 15 is actuated. The infrared rays are invisible to human eyes and therefore it seems as if a robot itself detected and tracked a target.
