Abstract

This paper describes an algorithm for rapidly and cheaply clustering humans moving in clusters during dense crowd conditions. The algorithm differs from other methods due to a focus on low cost, use of a single robot-mounted RGB-D sensor, and design choices driven by human perception and expectations of appropriate behavior. Use of a human-centered algorithm design process should lead to actions and decisions that are more aligned with human expectations since robots will mimic human perception and guesses during dense crowd motion.
