Museum Guide

An autonomous robot is set up to act as guide in a real-world museum and - using talk, gesture and head orientation - offers information to visitors who happen to pass by.

The scenario offers scalable degrees of complexity and allows us to explore interactional models for HRI, robot perception in the wild, cognitive architectures and the users' interpretation of robot conduct [1] [2] [3].
