In the paper, a novel moving object detection (MOD) algorithm is developed and integrated with robot visual Simultaneous Localization and Mapping (vSLAM). The moving object is assumed to be a rigid body and its coordinate system in space is represented by a position vector and a rotation matrix. The MOD algorithm is composed of detection of image features, initialization of image features, and calculation of object coordinates. Experimentation is implemented on a small-size humanoid robot and
