With the expected growth in mobile robotics the demand for expertise to develop robot control code will also increase. As end-users cannot be expected to develop this control code themselves, a more elegant solution would be to allow the end-users to teach the robot by demonstrating the task. In this paper we show how route learning tasks may be ¨translated¨ directly into robot control code simply by observing the task. We show how automated code generation may be facilitated through system identification which algorithmically and automatically transfers human behaviour into control code, using transparent mathematical functions. We provide two route learning examples where a mobile robot automatically obtains control code simply by observing human behaviour, identifying it using system identification, and copying the behaviour.
