Adaptive Floor Cleaning Strategy by Human Density Surveillance Mapping with a Reconfigurable Multi-Purpose Service Robot

Vinu Sivanantham, Anh Vu Le, Yuyao Shi, Mohan Rajesh Elara, Bing J Sheu
2021 Sensors  
This research aims to develop a safe social distance surveillance system on an intra-reconfigurable robot with a multi-robot cleaning system for large population environments, like office buildings, hospitals  ...  We propose an adaptive multi-robot cleaning strategy based on zig-zag-based coverage path planning that works in synergy with the human interaction heat map generated by safe social distance monitoring  ...  Each image frame is processed here independently and therefore loses track of previously detected humans. So, on top of this, we implement DeepSort [50] to track detected humans in the environment.  ...
