Lewis the Robotic Photographer

A human-sized robot wedding photographer collects images and displays them in a "photo album" that celebrants can print or store in digital format.

Robotic technology that engages human interaction.

Future research will develop more complicated, task-driven interactions with the robot and explore questions such as: How can we encourage people to pose for the robot without blocking or harassing it? Another goal is to develop a more sophisticated image-composition evaluator based on images chosen by humans.
