With the popularization of visual object tracking (VOT), more and more trajectory data are obtained and have begun to gain widespread attention in the fields of mobile robots, intelligent video surveillance, and the like. How to clean the anomalous trajectories hidden in the massive data has become one of the research hotspots. Anomalous trajectories should be detected and cleaned before the trajectory data can be effectively used. In this article, a Trajectory Evaluator by Sub-tracks (TES) for detecting VOT-based anomalous trajectory is proposed. Feature of Anomalousness is defined and described as the Eigenvector of classifier to filter Track Lets anomalous trajectory and IDentity Switch anomalous trajectory, which includes Feature of Anomalous Pose and Feature of Anomalous Sub-tracks (FAS). In the comparative experiments, TES achieves better results on different scenes than state-of-the-art methods. Moreover, FAS makes better performance than point flow, least square method fitting and Chebyshev Polynomial Fitting. It is verified that TES is more accurate and effective and is conducive to the sub-tracks trajectory data analysis.

The hippocampus and its accessory are the main areas for spatial cognition. It can integrate paths and form environmental cognition based on motion information and then realize positioning and navigation. Learning from the hippocampus mechanism is a crucial way forward for research in robot perception, so it is crucial to building a calculation method that conforms to the biological principle. In addition, it should be easy to implement on a robot. This paper proposes a bionic cognition model and method for mobile robots, which can realize precise path integration and cognition of space. Our research can provide the basis for the cognition of the environment and autonomous navigation for bionic robots.

Background: With the increasing demand of mobile robots in warehousing, logistics and service fields, simple planar motion is difficult to meet the task requirements of complex environment. The combination of mobile robot and cooperative robot is helpful to improve the dexterity of robot movement and expand the application of robots. Methods: Aiming at the application requirements of dual-arm robots and mobile robots in practical applications, this paper designed the hardware of a platform, built a simulation platform based on ROS (Robot Operating System), and designed the actual software control framework. Finally, the feasibility of the platform design was verified by the coupling motion experiment of the two robots. Results:  We have established a simulation of the dual-arm mobile platform in ROS, designed the actual software control framework, and verified the feasibility of the platform design through experiments. Conclusions:  The mobile platform can meet a variety of application requirements and lay the foundation for subsequent development.

As mobile robots are increasingly introduced into our daily lives, it grows ever more imperative that these robots navigate with and among people in a safe and socially acceptable manner, particularly in shared spaces. While research on enabling socially-aware robot navigation has expanded over the years, there are no agreed-upon evaluation protocols or benchmarks to allow for the systematic development and evaluation of socially-aware navigation. As an effort to aid more productive development and progress comparisons, in this paper we review the evaluation methods, scenarios, datasets, and metrics commonly used in previous socially-aware navigation research, discuss the limitations of existing evaluation protocols, and highlight research opportunities for advancing socially-aware robot navigation.

Applications of mobile robots are continuously capturing the importance in numerous areas such as agriculture, surveillance, defense, and planetary exploration to name a few. Accurate navigation of a mobile robot is highly significant for its uninterrupted operation. Simultaneous localization and mapping (SLAM) is one of the widely used techniques in mobile robots for localization and navigation. SLAM consists of front- and back-end processes, wherein the front-end includes SLAM sensors. These sensors play a significant role in acquiring accurate environmental information for further processing and mapping. Therefore, understanding the operational limits of the available SLAM sensors and data collection techniques from a single sensor or multisensors is noteworthy. In this article, a detailed literature review of widely used SLAM sensors such as acoustic sensor, RADAR, camera, Light Detection and Ranging (LiDAR), and RGB-D is provided. The performance of SLAM sensors is compared using an analytical hierarchy process (AHP) based on various key indicators such as accuracy, range, cost, working environment, and computational cost.

Mobile robots have an important role in material handling in manufacturing and can be used for a variety of automated tasks. The accuracy of the robot’s moving trajectory has become a key issue affecting its work efficiency. This paper presents a method for optimizing the trajectory of the mobile robot based on the digital twin of the robot. The digital twin of the mobile robot is created by Unity, and the trajectory of the mobile robot is trained in the virtual environment and applied to the physical space. The simulation training in the virtual environment provides schemes for the actual movement of the robot. Based on the actual movement data returned by the physical robot, the preset trajectory of the virtual robot is dynamically adjusted, which in turn enables the correction of the movement trajectory of the physical robot. The contribution of this work is the use of genetic algorithms for path planning of robots, which enables trajectory optimization of mobile robots by reducing the error in the movement trajectory of physical robots through the interaction of virtual and real data. It provides a method to map learning in the virtual domain to the physical robot.
