Mabel (the Mobile Table) is a robotic system that can perform waypoint and vision guided navigation, speech generation, speech recognition, person finding, face finding, and face following. Mabel can interact intelligently with humans in two different settings: food and information serving. The robot’s architecture is flexible and easily adaptable to other tasks such as search and rescue. Mabel was the winner of the 2002 robot host event at AAAI’s 2002 conference in Edmonton, Alberta
