Visible to the public Robust Algorithms for Mobile Robots to Learn Human Preferred Movement in a Hallway


We propose a dual expert algorithm (DEA) to assist a mobile robot in learning a person's preference of moving direction when the human encounters the robot in a typical hallway. When in use in hospital and office environments, a mobile robot will routinely encounter people who are not its primary user. These people need to feel comfortable around the robot for its implementation to be a success.
