Deliverable 3.4: Reactive Motion Planning

This report details the reactive navigation techniques developed for the CrowdBot project between months M1 to M30. In this sense, we have investigated three main technical components for achieving reactivity in different types of mobile or service robots when navigating in crowded environments.Each of the three technical components are designed to complement high-level planning techniques

Deliverable 3.5: Social Navigation

This task brings socially aware navigation strategies on the commercial platform Pepper. Special focus was put on the factors: Safety: No physical harm.  Comfort: Absence of annoyance and stress for humans. Naturalness: Similarity between robots and human’s behaviour patterns. Sociability: Adherence to explicit high-level socio-cultural conventions. This deliverable reports on the developments made by Softbank

Deliverable 3.2: Robust Localization and Mapping

This report details the robust localization and mapping algorithms developed for the Crowdbot project between months M1 and M30. Our proposed solutions are designed with the explicit goal of achieving robot navigation in crowded environments, where many existing methods struggle due to the high degree of dynamic motion around the robot. This report primarily serves
