Title Talking Robots With Lego MindStorms
Venue International Conference on Computational Linguistics
Session Main Conference
Year 2004

This paper shows how talking robots can be built from off-the-shelf components, based on the Lego MindStorms robotics platform. We present four robots that students created as final projects in a seminar we supervised. Because Lego robots are so affordable, we argue that it is now feasible for any dialogue researcher to tackle the interesting chal- lenges at the robot-dialogue interface.
