Detecting a person in a map with a Turtlebot

Hey guys,

I am using a ROS configured Turtlebot and want to make it be able to detect a person in a room without the person being directly in front of it and having the robot move to the person when it is located. For instance, when I ask the robot to go to "mike", the robot should search the map for mike and go to him. The problem I am facing is not how to detect "mike" but how to make it move through the map searching for the person and when the person is located, instead of continuing to search the map, go to the person instead.

Thanks for your help!

I would write a program that sent navigation goals in various places around the room using the action interface and then cancel the current goal if mike is found.
