Why Social Robots?

A social robot is an autonomous robot which interacts and communicates with humans. In difference to industrial robots, a social robot is made for serving us in our private life.

Often they will be used as interactive information deck with a big screen embedded within their body. The application of professional service robots will be rather in hotels, exhibitions, air ports and other places where customers need to be served.

A social robot is physically embodied in an avatar. Some are designed with a screen to represent the head or face, some others take rather a humanoid look.
