The Interactive Autonomous Mobile Robot (IamRobot) is a portable robotic platform that can autonomously navigate itself in an indoor environment using the information gathered from its 3D sensors. It is designed to be helpful in a variety of settings, one being at the Innovation Co-Lab, where it can wirelessly connect to databases to report relevant information to Co-Lab patrons such as available 3D printers, or bring a visitor to the room where a seminar is being held. Users will be able to interact with it through its speakers, microphone, tablet display, and portable projector.
