Fun Robotic Outdoor Guide

Project description


Cognitive Systems and Robotics

FROG proposes to develop a guide robot with a winning personality and behaviors that will engage tourists in a fun exploration of outdoor attractions. The work encompasses innovation in the areas of vision-based detection, robotics design and navigation, human-robot interaction, affective computing, intelligent agent architecture and dependable autonomous outdoor robot operation. The FROG robots’ fun personality and social visitor-guide behaviors aim to enhance the user experience and increase knowledge transfer as information is offered through multi-sensory interaction. FROG adapts its behavior to the users through vision-based detection of human engagement and interest. FROG plans to build a highly dependable robot that operates autonomously in populated outdoor real-world settings.
