  One of this year's object is a fellow robot ! Difficult area for our robot navigation system

Some results from the robot exploring the environment:

A nice object segmentation from Kinect (red->object; green->walls) Works well with mirrors, which is a problem for obstacle avoidance. Another good one.

Map from the final test with rooms (incorrect because we failled to see glass walls...) Map with detected objects. Only two for this run. Samples of the ground and wall types, mostly correct.
