This project proposes the development of the navigation system for a robotic guide. This robot is employed to guide people inside shops, malls or even museums, showing the most relevant things of them. Although the design of robotic guide systems is a well known problem, the development in a real, dynamic and likely crowded environment is challenging. The project introduces the robotic platform that we propose and the software structure (developed under ROS) to carry out a safe navigation inside crowded and dynamic environments.
