A team of researchers from Seoul National University built a pedestrian-following service robot to drive smart shopping carts and other autonomous helpers. The performance of their initial CPU-only implementation was “not acceptable for a real-time system” so they now use a GPU-accelerated CUDA implementation for a 13x performance boost. Mobile robots that track a person
