An important problem in the design of mobile robot systems for operation in natural environments for everyday tasks is the safe handling of encounters with people. People-People encounters follow certain social rules to allow co-existence even in cramped spaces. These social rules are often described according to the classification termed proxemics. In this paper we present an analysis of how the physical interaction with people can be modelled using the rules of proxemics and discuss how the rules of embodied feedback generation can simplify the interaction with novice users. We also provide some guidelines for the design of a control architecture for a mobile robot moving among people. The concepts presented are illustrated by a number of real experiments that verify the overall approach to the design of systems for navigation in human-populated environments.
