This paper presents an automatic mapping method of an indoor mobile robot assistant for the elderly people. Mapping based on the minimalistic environmental model is accomplished automatically by using a laser scanner which works at 500 K baud rate, and a RFID which is adopted to initialize robot's initial posture in real time. Numerous simulations and experimental results are performed to illustrate the feasibility and effectiveness of the proposed methods.
