Abstract

Nowadays, the research on robot on-map localization while using landmarks is more intensively dealing with visual code recognition. One of the most popular landmarks of this type is the QR-code. This paper is devoted to the experimental evaluation of vision-based on-map localization procedures that apply QR-codes or NAO marks, as implemented in service robot control systems. In particular, the NAO humanoid robot is our test-bed platform, while the use of robotic systems for hazard detection is the motivation of this study. Especially, the robot can be a useful aid for elderly people affected by dementia and cognitive disorientation. The detection of the door opening is assumed to be important to ensure safety in the home environment. Thus, the paper focus on door opening detection while using QR-codes.
