Abstract:
This work introduces the development of a navigation system for a robotic guide. This robot is employed to guide people inside shops, malls or even museums, showing the most relevant things of them. Although the design of robotic guide systems is a well known problem, the deployment in a real, dynamic and likely crowded environment is challenging. This paper introduces our robotic platform and the software structure to carry out a safe navigation inside crowded and dynamic environments.
