Generating Trajectories for robots in Hospital Environments

This work aims at developing locomotion techniques for the autonomous navigation of wheeled robots in real, crowded and dynamic environments, and accounting for specific social interactions between the robot and any bystanders.

A hospital environment will be chosen because at the present days, modern hospitals tend to have wide lobbies and corridors where people and materials can circulate, flat floors surfaces or elevators, and hence facilitate robotic navigation in hospitals. Furthermore, the geographically limited nature of the typical hospital environment simplifies the implementation of key perception functionalities such as world mapping.
