We report on progress in using multiple passive sensors to allow a mobile robot to operate successfully in a people populated unstructured indoor environment. The robot locates, follows and approaches people using rotating pairs of passive pyro-electric sensors to determine range and heading of candidate people, using fixed pyro-electric sensors to locate rapidly moving people, and passive touch sensors to avoid local obstacles. The sensors feed directly into behavioral modules, rather than undergo a fusion process. Work is underway to integrate vision in a similar manner.
