The Guest Orientation, Assistance, and Telepresence (GOAT) Robot will act as a tour-guide or escort at the WPI Campus. GOAT will provide live or telepresence assistance to prospective students as well as academic, corporate, official, and other guests. Users will interact with the robot through a combination of a touch-screen interface, voice, and gesture commands. The robot will guide visitors to destinations and be capable of providing video tour information.

More information coming shortly...
