This paper proposes a novel application of using an Unmanned Aerial Vehicle (UAV) for inhibiting physical harassments in public places. The existing surveillance systems are sufficient to monitor crowded areas but are not suitable for monitoring secluded places. The crimes are likely to occur in places with less crowd and make surveillance challenging, which eventually leads to an increase in crime rate. This paper discusses the development of an UAV based security system that responds to a request from a wearable gadget by a user probably a woman who faces a possible threat. The proposed approach focuses on the night time operation the period in which most of the physical attacks would occur. The person, who is facing a possible threat can request for assistance using a primary wearable gadget, which will send the GPS location to the control station. Then a UAV will be deployed to the target location which identifies and tracks the motion of the person using a secondary wearable gadget. This paper also proposes a low cost and lesser computational intensive solution for motion tracking. © 2017 IEEE.
