One of fundamental issues for service robots is human–robot interaction. In order to perform such a task and provide the desired services, these robots need to detect and track people in the surroundings. In this paper we present a shopping assistant system to be used in supermarkets, primarily for helping handicapped or elderly people for carrying a big load in hand. The proposed system is based in three main components: a) mobile devices, like mobile phones, that users carry with them, b) a set of mobile robots to assist supermarket users, c) the robotic assistant. This system will allow users to keep control in robot by communication with the robot, the robot will help the customer by handling all the product. In this work is also shown the acceptability studies for this kind of robot. The problem of creating a person-tracking mobile robot has been studied by many researchers in literature. There are two main issues associated with this problem. The first issue is to equip a robot with proper sensory devices so that it is able to identify and locate the target person in a crowd in real time. The second issue is to control and navigate the robot so that it follows the target person within a certain distance.
