BIRON: Let's Interact

Researchers at Bielefeld University in Germany are working on a robot to help understand and develop robot-human interaction.
The robot, BIRON, for Bielefield Robot Companion, will give a person its full attention and learn from them.

BIRON first recognizes a person's face and tracks it. If the person wants to talk to BIRON they must look at the robot. The robot can recognize speech and hand gestures and will follow you if you ask it to.

The robot is built on a Mobile Robots base with laser rangefinder, cameras, microphones and a video screen for a face.
