Hey guys just have one question that may involve many opinions.

Im building a robot that follows a human. What is the best setting of roborealm that people have found to work best.

Human wearing a shirt with a certain color. or a shirt with a shape that can be followed using object tracking? what is the safest way of not loosing the person.

You could try to use motion detection for such task.
See “AVM Navigator/Watching mode” for example:

The Tee-Shirt idea is a good start.  You can make use of fiducials printed on the tee shirt to give the robot cues.  For example, a fiducial printed on the upper right arm might notify the robot to prepare to turn right up ahead.  Another fiducial on the front might tell the robot to wait there, or back up.

I'd recommend a striped T-shift with at least 3 colors either vertical or horizontal. Then you'd be detecting those 3 colors next to each other kind of like a colored bar code. The reason for this is that the shirt can distort a bit that might cause a fiducial to warp but the colors would still be detectable.

If you look at the images on the homepage there is one that detects those types of color codes. You can click on the download link just below the image at that time it is shown to get the robofile.
