Modern service robots are designed to operate in private and public areas characterized by the presence of people. In order to move safely in the environment and provide useroriented services, these robots need to estimate the position and the identity of humans. Such a task, however, is made particularly difficult by the uncertainty of robot's observations and by the dynamic nature of human environments. The methods and the algorithms implemented have been extensively tested with mobile robots in dynamic human envhonments, evaluating the performance of the people tracking and recognition in many challenging situations. The solutions adopted include a number of contributions in the challenging areas of human-centred robotics and multisensor perception.
