In social robotics, it is important that a mobile robot knows where it is because it provides a starting point for other activities such as moving from one room to another. As a contribution to solving this problem in the field of the semantic location of the mobile robot, we pro- pose to implement a methodology of recognition and scene learning in a real domestic environment. For this purpose, we used images from five different residences to create a dataset with which the base model was trained. The effectiveness of the implemented base model is evaluated in different scenarios. When the accuracy of the site identification decreases, the user provides feedback to the robot so that it can process the information collected from the new environment and re-identify the current location. The results obtained reinforce the need to acquire more knowledge when the environment is not recognizable by the pre-trained model.
