We present EWareNet, a novel intent-aware social robot navigation algorithm among pedestrians. Our approach predicts the trajectory-based pedestrian intent from historical gaits, which is then used for intent-guided navigation taking into account social and proxemic constraints. To predict pedestrian intent, we propose a transformer-based model that works on a commodity RGB-D camera mounted onto a moving robot. Our intent prediction routine is integrated into a mapless navigation scheme andarXiv:2011.09438v3 fatcat:b3x2pdzlq5er5gqpxhwps4ddea
