  abstract = {In  this  paper  we  present  the  approaches  that  we used  for  this  year's  RoboCup@Home  participation  in  the  Open Platform League. A special focus was put on team collaboration by  handing  over  objects  between  two  robots  of  different  teams that  were  not  connected  by  network.  The  robots  communicated using  natural  language  (speech  synthesis,  speech  recognition),  a typical human-robot ``interface'' that was adapted to robot-robot interaction. Furthermore, we integrated new approaches for online tracking and learning of an operator, have shown a novel approach for  teaching  a  robot  new  commands  by  describing  them  using natural language and a set of previously known commands. Parameters of these commands are still interchangeable. Finally, we integrated deep neural networks for person detection and recognition, human pose estimation, gender classification and object recognition.},

In the field of service robotics its role becomes crucial. Competitions like RoboCup@Home bring robots to people, a fundamental step to integrate them into society. In this paper we summarize and discuss the differences between the achievements claimed by teams in their team description papers, and the results observed during the competition1 from a qualitative perspective. We conclude with a set of important challenges to be conquered first in order to take robots to people's homes. We believe that competitions are also an excellent opportunity to collect data of direct and unbiased interactions for further research.},

  title = {European Robotics League homer@UniKoblenz},

  abstract = {This paper describes the robot hardware and soft-
ware used by team homer@UniKoblenz of the University of
Koblenz and Landau, Germany, for the participation in the
European Robotics League 2017 for Service Robots in Lisbon. A
special focus is put on detailed hardware and software description
and novel scientific achievements. For navigation and mapping we
use well-established SLAM techniques based on particle filter and
grid maps. Object recognition is achieved by clustering of local
invariant features. Three-dimensional scans of the environment
are acquired using a RGB-D sensor mounted on a pan-tilt unit.
In order to manipulate objects a 6 DOF industrial-grade robotic
arm is employed. An abstraction layer in our software architec-
ture allows for task planning and general purpose task execution.
For the improvement of human-robot interaction we developed a
generic face model that is synchronized to speech and can show
seven different face expressions. This robot face is available as
a ROS-node for other teams. Some of the novelties of this year
is a new robotic platform and a complete change to ROS that
now replaces our previously used software architecture. Further,
our object recognition, mapping and navigation algorithms were
published as ROS package. Furthermore, improvements were
made in speech recognition, object recognition, manipulation as
well as 3D mapping.}
