Entertainment Robots - Myth or Reality

Alexander K. Seewald, Austrian Research Institute for Artificial Intelligence, Austria

This paper presents an overview of the current field of entertainment robotics based on experiences as spectator during the RoboCup 1999 and building an experimental entertainment robot based on the LEGO platform with digital color camera and various other sensors. RoboCat is a robot cat prototype that shows cat-like behaviour in the real-life environment of typical households. For behavioural modelling, the Hamsterdam architecture was chosen. While showingthat Blumberg’s Hamsterdam offers a new programming paradigm to design intelligent entertainment robots, this paper also aims to decide whether or not truly intelligent entertainment robots are as of yet a myth
