Localization Among Humans
Indoor Localization is a primary task for social robots. We are particularly interested in how to solve this problem for a mobile robot using primarily vision sensors. This work examines a critical issue related to generalizing approaches for static environments to dynamic ones: (i) it considers how to deal with dynamic users in the environment that obscure landmarks that are key to safe navigation, and (ii) it considers how standard localization approaches for static environments can be augmented to deal with dynamic agents (e.g., humans).
