His Majesty the King of the Netherlands will meet the FROG Robot at the opening ceremony of the innovation centre, the Gallery, at Kennispark Twente in Enschede, on Wednesday, 2nd April.

FROG the guide robot

FROG is short for Fun Robotic Outdoor Guide. FROG is a guide robot with a winning personality and behaviours that will engage tourists in a fun exploration of outdoor attractions. The robot adapts its behaviour to the users through vision-based detection of human engagement and interest. It needs to operate autonomously in populated outdoor real-world settings

It is funded by the Seventh EU Framework Programme for Research and Development. The consortium is made up of Universiteit Twente and Universiteit van Amsterdam from the Netherlands, Imperial College London from the UK, Universidad Pablo del Olavide from Spain, and YDREAMS and IDMIND from Portugal.
