Welcome Robot!

The Sorrells Library is hosting a robot from our Robotics Institute.  The Robot will be learning our floor plan, sometimes used in a teleo-operated mode, and (we hope) interact with people in the library.  He’ll be spending more time in the library in the near future.  Now this is a transition, eh?!!  Find out more about the Cobots in general at:  http://www.cs.cmu.edu/~coral/projects/cobot/.
