Abstract

This paper showcases the development of a mobile robot integrated with Projectable Interactive Surface to facilitate its interaction with human users. The system was designed to interact with users of any physical attributes such as height, arm span etc. without re-calibrating it. The system was designed in such a way that there would be no need for the human to come in physical contact with the robot to give it instructions. This system uses a projector to render a virtual display on the ground allowing us to project large displays. Microsoft Kinect integrated in the systems performs a dual functionality of tracking the user movements along with mapping the surrounding environment. The gestures of the tracked user are interpreted and an audio visual signal is projected by the robot in response.
