This paper addresses a surveillance problem in which the goal is to achieve a circular motion around a target by a non-holonomic agent. The agent only knows its own position with respect to its initial frame, and the bearing angle of the target in that frame. It is assumed that the position of the target is unknown. An estimator and a controller are proposed to estimate the position of the target and make the agent move on a circular trajectory with a desired radius around it. The performance of the proposed algorithm is verified both through simulations and experiments. Robustness is also established in the face of noise and target motion.
