Towards a Network Robot System for Object Identification and Localization in RoboCup@Home
A. Borissov, J. Janecek, F. Pecora and A. Saffiotti
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
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.
