Deliverable 1.1: Specification of Scenarios Requirements

Scenarios are descriptors that portray use cases and operational procedures of mobile robots in human crowd environments such as hospitals, shopping malls, train stations and other public or private venues. Nowadays we are witnessing the presence of robots in both public and private places but their efficacy and technological features are rather modest due to their limited mobility and interaction with humans. The main focus of the Crowdbot Project is to demonstrate safe and efficient mobile robot navigation in a dense crowded human environment. This report details various navigation scenarios we plan to test and validate as part of the overall project goal of research, innovation, ethics and feasibility study for technology transfer in mobile robotics.
