Abstract

A path planning is studied for a mobile robot that works in a living environment. If the robot moves in the living environment, then the robot has to achieve the path planning so as to care about the persons as well as recognize the environment. Assume here that sensors are distributed in the environmental side, and human's walking is observed. The human's walking route is safe and easier to move for the robot because the human avoids obstacles or selects the efficient route. Thus, in this research, observed human positions are used for the path planning of the robot. Then, a "Human Frequency Map (HFM)" is proposed, where it is a grid map based on the observed human position and frequency in a term. In addition to the current position of human, the possibility of encountering human and the width of passage can be considered to perform a path planning by using the HFM.
