This paper presents a novel approach for improving the computation speed of the ball detection and obstacle detection processes in our robot. The conditions of obstacle detection and ball detection in our robot still have a slow processing speed, this condition makes the robot not real-time and the robot's movement is hampered. To build a good world model, things to note are obstacle information and real-time ball detection. The focus of this research is to increase the speed of the process of the ball and obstacle detection around the robot. To increase the speed of the process, it is necessary to optimize the use of the OpenCV library on the robot operating system (ROS) system to divide the process into several small processes so that the work can be optimally divided into threads that have been created. Then, minimize the use of too many frames. This information will be sent to the base station and also for obstacle avoidance purposes.
