ROBOT ASKS FOR DIRECTIONS

It might be another effort to set the beginning of a long lasting relationship (humans & robots). Who knows where it may end up?

I really liked the BMW at the beginning of this video. Just kidding!
My dream is that one day there are robots to clean the house.

Most people can think this robot do no great thing. And that it's a little stupid because it had to ask 38 times to reach the landmark (maybe it realy is - hehe!). But each step foreward cientists give with these technologies, the robots becomes more similar to us.
How long will it take for world be like fiction of the movie "I Robot" for example?

it's a very nice robot. Maybe in the future there will be a thousands of this kind of robot at the street and probably there will be more developed robots

The Artificial Intelligence is the big challenge of robotics nowadays...but it's totaly feasible. The robot did well in accomplishing its goal...I think that no one of us would do better to find the landmark...first of all because we don't speak German :-)

Did you see the related videos? There's a robot that plays yo-yo!!!

Gloria : I agree with Patrick comment: robots can be excelents to clean the house, but I think i'll never have one because there is a long road to this happen.

The robot has interesting functions; it can help many disabled people. Now, the designers to upgrade the look not to scare people.

This is an important project to get robot closer to us. We don't know if in same years we'll not be living and working with them.

Folks
I really appreciate everyone of your comments.
My prediction is that in a few decades robots and computers will be sharing the decision of very important things in our lives in a far larger scale than what they do today.

That robot has a great work of engineering, because it is equipped with many sensors (image processing, distance sensor) that allow this sofsticated interation with humans.
