The tour guide robot Roslyn is an autonomous system that can provide tours to anybody on the second oor of the Scrugham Engineering and Mines building. The robot is not only able to navigate the halls, but navigate them in a socially acceptable manner. This means it does not collide with pedestrians while in motion and takes walking speed into consideration. In order to interact with the user, there is a touch-screen display mounted on top of the moving robot base. As the robot moves throughout the hall, information appears on the screen related to the landmarks being passed (i.e. laboratories and o ces). The user is also able to select a destination on the screen in order to begin the tour.
