Abstract

We present a demonstration of a Robot Receptionist: a situated interactive robot that can coordinate turn-taking and handle multi-party engagement and dialogue in dynamic environments, where users might enter or leave the scene at any time. We use a Furhat robot, which is highly expressive and can use verbal communication as well as non-verbal cues, such as facial expressions. The system demonstrated and described here is composed of several modules, including scene analysis, engagement policies, and a dialogue manager.
