Robot Guiding You Through Complex Financial Center in Madrid


In Madrid, Spain, there's a huge financial center and it is difficult for a visitor to navigate through the whole structure. This is why, researchers decided to create multilingual robots that can show visitors the surroundings and offer necessary information on a certain destination.

The smart robots are about one foot high. They move around the Santander Group's financial complex, being able to avoid running into other people, robots walls or any other obstacles that appear on the way.

Below you can see the video that explains how these robots work and what else you can find in the complex financial center of Madrid.

Nicely produced video. It made the topic friendlier than it might otherwise have been. I still can't help thinking it would be fun to try fooling the robots, but perhaps I'll grow out of that one day.
