In this paper, we present an initial design of an interactive interface for a service robot based on multi sensor fusion. We show how the integration of speech, vision and laser range data can be performed using a high level of abstraction. Guided by a number of scenarios commonly used in a service robot framework, the experimental evaluation will show the benefit of sensory integration which allows the design of a robust and natural interaction system using a set of simple perceptual algorithms.
