Towards a Network Robot System for Object Identification and Localization in RoboCup@Home

A. Borissov, J. Janecek, F. Pecora and A. Saffiotti

Abstract
This paper describes a realization of a network robot system for autonomous object localization and identification. Developing a ``Lost \& Found'' capability, the use of which can be envisaged in a wide range of applicative domains including domestic assistive scenarios, is a challenging task for current AI and robotic technology. Indeed, this task is currently one of the core challenges within the RoboCup@Home competition.
A number of approaches for implementing a robust and general Lost \& Found functionality are feasible. In this paper we present a solution which integrates state-of-the-art intelligent software, robotic and sensory components in a distributed network of cooperating modules. This article describes the design and implementation of the system, provides a preliminary experimental evaluation and discusses the applicability of our approach to the RoboCup@Home challenge.
