In robotics, detecting and tracking moving objects is key to implementing useful and safe robot behaviours. Identifying which of the detected objects are humans is particularly important for domestic and public environments.
Typically the robot is required to collect environmental data of the surrounding area using its on-board sensors, estimating where humans are and where they are going to. Moreover, robots should detect and track humans accurately and as early as possible in order to have enough time to react accordingly
