Implementing Human-Acceptable Navigational Behavior and a Fuzzy Controller for an Autonomous Robot

By Vicente Matellan Olivera, Juan Carlos and Reid Simmons


Robots are just starting to appear in peopled environments but in order to be accepted by humans, they should obey basic people's social rules. In particular, they have to be able to move around without disturbing people. This means that they have to obey the social rules that manage the movement of people, for example following virtual lanes when moving through corridors, not crossing in front of moving people, etc. In this paper some of these aspects are explained, as well as the implementation of preliminaries works to implement the proposed solutions are described. So, a slight modification to the Lane-Curvature Method is presented to improve the behavior of a mobile robot when crossing people in a corridor. Other works needed to test this modifications in the robot Amelia of the Reliable Autonomous Systems Lab, as the implementation of a fuzzy controller, are also described in this pape
