Designing interactive mobile robots is a multidisciplinary endeavor that profits from having people interact with robots in different contexts, observing the effects and impacts. To do so, two main issues must be addressed: integrating perceptual and decision-making capabilities in order to interact in meaningful and efficient ways with people, and the ability to move in human settings. This paper describes four robotic platforms demonstrated at the AAAI 2005 Robot Competition, each addressing these issues in their own ways.
