A guide robot has to capture and process the orders given by humans in an accurate and robust way to generate the correct answer to the task requested. 

The proposed solution aims at creating a guide robot that is able to interact with humans, interpret and understand their guiding requirements and plan the path to the destination. To automatically perform the natural Human Robot interaction, we propose a solution combining natural language processing techniques, semantic technologies and autonomous navigation techniques. We have evaluated the solution in a real scenario with di?erent subjects and we have obtained an accuracy of 71,7%.
