In addition, the GRACE and GEORGE team plans on running their robots as often and continuously as possible.
First time participant from University of Missouri-Columbia will present a team of small Lego robots moving in formations based on recognized gestures sketched on PDA. The team is also supposed to participate in Open Interaction event.
First time participant from University of Notre Dame will present a multi-purpose mobile service robot with ability to track people and interact with them using natural language. The team is also supposed to participate in Open Interaction event.
Stony Brook Robot Design Team
Returning team from Stony Brook University will present a new and improved version of ButlerBot with emphasis on entertainment and human interaction. The team is also supposed to participate in Open Interaction event.
First year participant from Human Emulation Robotics, LLC Social Robots will present human interaction system with a realistic human face. The team will present battery-powered, compact heads animated by a suite of AI and perceptual software, including face-perceiving machine vision, speaker independent speech recognition, speech synthesis, and natural language interactivity. The team is also supposed to participate in Challenge event.
Returning team from Washington University in St. Louis will demonstrate failure-tolerant robotic software architecture. The team is also supposed to participate in Challenge event.
GRACE and GEORGE
Returning team from Carnegie Mellon University, Naval Research Lab, and Swarthmore College will present two robots working together to provide concierge service for the conference: answering questions about the conference, giving directions, and leading attendees to specific locations. The team is supposed to participate in Open Interaction event.
