An Android library and a sample application help you integrate navigation and localization using ArUco markers only.

An ArUco marker is a synthetic square marker composed by a wide black border and an inner binary matrix which determines its identifier (id).

With the PepperAruco Android library, you will be able to detect Aruco markers around Pepper and use them as landmarks to navigate around the room. The markers can be placed anywhere, on the wall, floor or ceiling.
The PepperAruco library is only available for Pepper, with the QiSDK only.
