In recent years, there has been an increasing interest in robots designed to assist with information, communication and way-finding at airports, hospitals, shops and other public areas. This poster includes an overview of available commercial-off-the-shelf robot platforms designed for public relation tasks. The physical and technical attributes of the identified robot platforms are described and compared, along with a short analysis of the applications proposed by the vendors. The platforms can potentially be used to accelerate HRI research and the implementation of robot applications for public relation tasks.
