1 TOURBOT - Interactive Museum Tele- presence Through Robotic Avatars Wolfram Burgard Department of Computer Science University of Freiburg TOURBOT Coordinator: Panos Trahanias Institute of Computer Science Foundation for Research and Technology - Hellas Heraklion, Crete, Greece

2 TOURBOT - Interactive Museum Tele-presence Through Robotic Avatars Prof. Dr. Wolfram Burgard, TOURBOT Consortium Foundation for Research and Technology - Hellas (FORTH - Technical) University of Freiburg (UNIFR - Technical) Foundation of the Hellenic World (FHW - Broker / End- User) University of Bonn (UNIBONN - Technical) Theon Mobile Platforms SA (THEON - Technical) Deutsches Museum Bonn (MUSBON - End-User) Byzantine and Christian Museum of Athens (BYZMUS - End-User)

3 TOURBOT - Interactive Museum Tele-presence Through Robotic Avatars Prof. Dr. Wolfram Burgard, TOURBOT Data Key Action 3 Action Line Duration 24 m (01/01/ /12/2001) Budget 1,718,150, EU contribution 1,088,790 RTD Project Funded by EU-IST Programme

4 TOURBOT - Interactive Museum Tele-presence Through Robotic Avatars Prof. Dr. Wolfram Burgard, TOURBOT Concept Remote representative of the user Based on mobile robotic platforms equipped with sensors and connected to Internet Controlled over the Web Able to navigate autonomously and reliably Transmitting multimedia data to remote users Tele-presence in museums through robotic avatars (TOUr-guide RoBOTs) See Through the Eyes of the Robot

5 TOURBOT - Interactive Museum Tele-presence Through Robotic Avatars Prof. Dr. Wolfram Burgard, TOURBOT Goals Development of an interactive tour-guide robot able to provide individual access to museums' exhibits and cultural heritage over the Internet. Operate as the user's avatar in the museum by accepting commands over the web that direct it to move in its workspace and visit specific exhibits. Act as a flexible, on-site museum-guide.

6 TOURBOT - Interactive Museum Tele-presence Through Robotic Avatars Prof. Dr. Wolfram Burgard, TOURBOT Design

7 TOURBOT - Interactive Museum Tele-presence Through Robotic Avatars Prof. Dr. Wolfram Burgard, TOURBOT Objectives develop a robotic avatar with advanced navigation capabilities that will be able to move (semi)autonomously in the museum's premises, develop appropriate web interfaces to the robotic avatar that will realize distant-user's telepresence, i.e facilitate scene observation through the avatar's eyes, facilitate personalized and realistic observation of the museum exhibits, enable on-site, interactive museum tour-guides.
