Lobby Robot

Say hello to a 4-foot lobby robot (and watch as it says hello back)! Took us a couple of months to put together and one of the more challenging Arduino and Raspberry Pi project we built in 2016.

This *kawaii* robot will wander around your office lobby to greet and entertain your guests. It features face detection (to be able to detect humans), speech recognition (to be able to answer your questions), and obstacle avoidance (to be able to, well, avoid obstacles when it decided to play around). It can’t serve coffee yet, but that’s a dream…

We used a Raspberry Pi 3 and an Arduino Mega 2560 to act as the Robot’s brain and a Raspberry Pi 7″ Touch Screen LCD with the Raspberry Pi Camera to see and interact with people.

Watch this robot come to life in the video below! If you’re interested, you can see the rest of our interactive advertising projects in our portfolio page.
