Abstract

In this workshop paper, we share a case of using a quadrupedal robot dog to live stream a local outdoor event and how it was received by the public. In this impromptu exploratory work, we discuss the technical set-up, as well as the novelty factor, when interacting with robots in public. We share insights on people reacting to the robot mostly positively and what kind of role robots could play in the future in order to engage people at organized events. In the future, we would like to explore robots in other public settings and contexts, such as hybrid events.
