Demo 3

The fourth and final demonstration of the project was completed successfully today. The two robots collaborated with two humans to via dialogue complete a set of tasks specified by the humans. Information needed to complete the tasks was dynamically detected and extracted by asking the humans to provide it. The video and the report will be posted here when ready.

Demo 2

We have completed Demo 2 of the project and the report and video are almost ready for publication. The robots behaved very well and worked together nicely to complete the tasks. They start up searching for humans to speak to (like in Demo 1) and once a human has been found one of the robots strikes up a conversation to collaborate on a task which the other robot will be helping with while the conversation is in progress. We have found a number of issues which didn’t directly affect Demo 2, but which we definitely need to fix for Demo 3, such as the tasks getting out of sync and roles playing up. Luckily the cameras and the vision code works much better now.

Last Push

We are heading into the last two months of the project, scheduled to finish on 31 March 2018. We have completed two demonstrations (Demo 0 and Demo 1) and are working hard on the final elements for the final two (Demo 2 and Demo 3). Our speech interaction is improving day by day and the robot’s 2D and 3D vision is now ready.

A new look

Our robots are now boasting of a new and longer neck for a raised camera position. It makes them look like giraffes, but it’s part of a set of improvements being implemented for our next demo. They also include testing a new camera with better handling of light, implementing better on-board face detection and lowering the volume of network traffic.
