WIPO Patent Application WO/2017/175360
Kind Code:
A1
Abstract:
A control system has a moving body that moves within a region, and a control device for controlling the moving body. The moving body has a first camera for capturing an image of a person within the region. A first processor determines the face direction in which the face of a person is turned, on the basis of the existence of a facial image of a person captured by the first camera, and controls the moving device so that the moving body moves according to routing information sent from the control device. The control device has a second camera for capturing an image of the person and the moving body within the region. A second processor detects the position of the person and the position of the moving body within the region on the basis of the image of the region captured by the second camera, and on the basis of the detected person position and moving body position, and on information about the determined face direction sent from a first interface, calculates the routing information by which the moving body will reach from the person to within a prescribed range, and to a position within a range of either inside the field of view or outside the field of view of the person, and sends the calculated routing information to the moving body.
