Abstract

One of the main challenges in field of service robots is the development of human-following technology. There are many potential applications of human-following robots, including human following shopping carts, airport porter robots, and guide robots at museums. In this study, we examined the human-tracking mobile robot using skeletal data from Kinect sensors and investigated its target-tracking accuracy through experiments. On the basis of this research, we aim to improve the reliability of human-tracking mobile robots using a single Laser Range Finder (LRF) in our future work.
