Sidra Welcoming Robot
To provide a fully functioning, attractively shaped, humanoid robot that can welcome guests and VIPs at the reception entrance and give directions to guide them to the desired locations.
All the materials needed for this will be provided, supplied, installed in the specified location, agreed design and connected to the digital visitor management system.
- Interactive eyes: Interactive moving eyes which give a livelier feeling that the robot is looking at the user. Different eye types and gestures can be programmed with the eyes such as eye roll, wink, wince etc…
- Interactive head movement: The robot interacts with people by head movement when it detects a face, whether it is a resident or visitor.
- Bilingual (English/Arabic): The robot will be able to support multiple languages, namely English and Arabic.
- Room mapping using LiDAR technology:
The Lidar is used to:
- Create 3D-map of the area using the built-in laser sensors.
- Scan the area for obstacles and avoid them.
- Uses the obstacles to create borders in the map.
- Navigate around the created map, using path planning algorithms.
- SLAM technology is used to determine the position of the robot.
- SLAM Technology (simultaneous localization and mapping) systems determine the orientation and position of a robot by creating a map of their environment while simultaneously tracking where the robot is within that environment.
- Moves in the enclosed area using SLAM
- Face and mask detection: To detect and differentiate between objects and faces. Immediately detects face and checks if the user is wearing a mask or not. Checks the temperature of the user and sounds an alert if it’s above the ideal temperature, using a thermal camera.
- Face recognition: The robot can recognize and differentiate between different faces and whether they are authorized personnel or visitors,
- Authorized/VIP: The robot will make interactive gestures using the interactive eyes and head and welcome them.
- Visitors: The robot will redirect them to the registration page where they can either scan their visitor or business card or manually fill in their details.
- Authentication methods:
- Card reader: The robot has the ability to scan an ID card and validate the details before allowing the user to enter inside the venue.
- QR Code Authentication
- Generation: A QR code would be generated by the robot and displayed on the screen for each unique user.
- Scanning: In case the user already has a QR code, he can then scan it to enter the area. For ex. A VIP entering using his pre generated QR code to access special rooms.
Human following and guidance: The robot can ask the user to take him to a place within the indoor surrounding, and once the user tells the robot, it will guide him/her to the specified location. The robot is also able to pre save locations on the map or save locations specified by the user for future use.
Autonomous charging: The robot has the ability to automatically move to it’s recharging base and charge itself completely. The user can move the charging base anywhere and relocate the initial location of the charging station, and the robot will be able to find the charging station.
