Robot employed as a receptionist in the Computer Science building
News Image
Two students of Computer Science and Electronics, Marios Harrane and Andreas Anastasiades, developed for their final project a robotic receptionist for the Computer Science building. Once the robot recognizes a person in front of it, it asks if it can help locate a member of staff, recognizes names of most staff working in the building, and gives directions pointing with its robotic arm.
