© Springer International Publishing Switzerland 2014. Colour plays an important role in the perception systems of the human beings. In robotics, the development of new sensors has made it possible to obtain colour information together with depth information about the environment. The exploitation of this type of information has become more and more important in numerous tasks. In our recent work, we have developed an evolutionary-based scan matching method. The aim of this work is to modify this method by the introduction of colour properties, taking the first steps in studying how to use colour to improve the scan matching. In particular, we have applied a colour transition detection method based on the delta E divergence between neighbours in a scan. Our algorithm has been tested in a real environment and significant conclusions have been reached.
