Downloadable Contentopen in viewer
The project focused on performing a feasibility study to evaluate the public's interest and comfort level with a tour guide robot, and on gaining information for guiding future development of the robot into a fully functioning and autonomous tour guide. Volunteers who had already completed a normal campus tour were guided on a tour route by a robot. The robot was controlled remotely by a student in a "wizard of oz" type trial without the knowledge of the tour participants. The volunteers filled out questionnaires pertaining to their thoughts and feelings regarding their tour experiences. - Overall, the participants were overwhelmingly pleased and enthusiastic about the robotic tours leading to the conclusion that robot guided tours are a feasible practice for the WPI campus.
