Abstract
In the future, we envision domestic robots to play a large role in our everyday lives. This requires robots able to anticipate our needs and preferences and adapt their behavior. Since current robotics research takes place primarily in laboratory settings, it fails to take into account real users. In this work, we explore how organization occurs in the kitchen through a home study. Our analysis includes qualitative insights towards robot behavior during kitchen organization, an open source dataset of real life kitchens, and a proof-of-concept application of this dataset to the problem of object return.
