A hybrid algorithm for tracking and following people using a robotic dog
Proceedings of the 3rd international conference on Human robot interaction - HRI '08
The capability to follow a person in a domestic environment is an important prerequisite for a robot companion. In this paper, a tracking algorithm is presented that makes it possible to follow a person using a small robot. This algorithm can track a person while moving around, regardless of the sometimes erratic movements of the legged robot. Robust performance is obtained by fusion of two algorithms, one based on salient features and one on color histograms.
