We research on autonomous mobile robots with a seamless integration of perception, cognition, and action. In this talk, I will first introduce our CoBot service robots and their novel localization and symbiotic autonomy, which enable them to consistently move in our buildings, now for more than 1,000km. I will then introduce the CoBot robots as novel mobile data collectors of vital information of our buildings, and present their data representation, their active data gathering algorithm, and the particular use of the gathered WiFi data by CoBot. I will further present an overview of multiple human-robot interaction contributions, and detail the use and planning for language-based complex commands. I will then conclude with some philosophical and technical points on my view on the future of autonomous robots in our environments.

Manuela M. Veloso is the Herbert A. Simon University Professor in the Computer Science Department at Carnegie Mellon University, with courtesy appointments in the Robotics Institute, and Machine Learning, Electrical and Computer Engineering, and Mechanical Engineering Departments. She researches in Artificial Intelligence and Robotics. She founded and directs the CORAL research laboratory, for the study of autonomous agents that Collaborate, Observe, Reason, Act, and Learn, Professor Veloso is IEEE Fellow, AAAS Fellow, AAAI Fellow, and the past President of AAAI and RoboCup. Professor Veloso and her students have worked with a variety of autonomous robots, including mobile servicerobots and soccer robots.
