Robot Interaction, has always been a challenge in collaborative robotics. In tasks comprising Inter-Robot Interaction, robot detection is very often needed. We explore humanoid robots detection because, humanoid robots can be useful in many scenarios, and everything from helping elderly people live in their own homes to responding to disasters. Cameras are chosen because they are reach and cheap sensors, and there are lots of mature 2D and 3D computer vision libraries which facilitate Image analysis. The well-known cascade classifier in combination with several image descriptors like HOG, LBP, etc. are utilized to detect objects.
