REEM, the humanoid robot


Today I had the chance to see REEM, the humanoid service robot developed by the spanish company PAL Robotics. The robot will be working as a Dynamic Information Point in a public are in CosmoCaixa (Barcelona) until December 2nd. This robot was designed to guide, inform and entertain people in public environments like museums, airports and special events. The robot is 1.65m high and is provided with cameras, ultrasonic sensors and laser range finders to localize itself within the environment and to avoid obstacles. The good-looking robot has definitely caught the children's attention, who were following the robot all the time, making REEM to demonstrate its obstacles avoiding capabilities :).
