Cicerobot: Your Robotic Museum Guide

Posted 22 Mar 2006 at 16:39 UTC by steve Share This

Roland Piquepaille writes, "ANSA reports about a robot which will guide visitors in the Agrigento museum in Sicily. Cicerobot is 1.5-meter high and is equipped with wheels, a keyboard, a monitor, video camera and sensors. As many objects in this archaeological museum are very old and precious, a special emphasis was given to navigation. So far, Cicerobot only speaks Italian, but should soon be fluent in other languages. As it is able to collect data from different sensor locations, it also plays the role of a security guard. Finally, it will also offer virtual tours of the museum via Internet." For more details and some photos of Cicerbot, see Roland's blog.
