Software contributions

  • General Orchestrator : we developed a General Orchestrator allowing the robot to coordinate its capacities (navigation, perception, interaction) and make decision on defined scenario.

  • Navigation Manager : this functionality provide a set of navigation strategy depending on the observed context. Regarding to the context (lots of people, complex environment, large free space zone), the robot changes it way of navigation.

  • Perception : in order to interact with people we developed a set of tools that accumulate knowledge about observed human

    • Face recognition : a solution was developed to automatically catch face and learn it for future detection.
    • Color detection : we extract main colors of a given picture (e.g t-shir, trousers) based on HSV format and K-mean clustering
    • Pose detection : based on the OpenPose data, we build a pose extractor gives us the estimate pose (stand, sit, lying down, left or right arm up,…)
