The focus is to study people's willingness to interact, and their reaction when a robot enters their daily environment. The robot autonomously detects and follows people, while keeping a safe distance. The conclusion was that people were positive towards robots in their daily life. The experiments gave knowledge about using robots in open-ended environments, and knowledge about people's reactions and expectations to robots in urban environments.
