Talking Robots With LEGO Mindstorms

Alexander Koller and Geert-Jan Kruijff

In Proceedings of the 20th International Conference on Computational Linguistics (COLING), Geneva, 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 challenges at the robot-dialogue interface.
