Interacting with a domestic service robot implies the exis- tence of a joint environment model for a user and a robot. We present a pilot study that investigates, how humans present a familiar environment to a mobile robot. Results from this study are used to evaluate a generic environment model for a service robot that can be personalised by inter- action.
