A cornerstone for robotic assistants is their understanding of the space they are to be operating in: an environment built by people for people to live and work in. The research questions we are interested in in this chapter concern spatial understanding, and its connection to acting and interacting in indoor environments. Comparing the way robots typically perceive and represent the world with findings from cognitive psychology about how humans do it, it is evident that there is a large discrepancy. If robots are to understand humans and vice versa, robots need to make use of the same concepts to refer to things and phenomena as a person would do. Bridging the gap between human and robot spatial representations is thus of paramount importance.
