Rickie is a unique telepresence robot capable of interacting with people, recognizing their faces and can read their name if they carry a nametag. It is capable of heavy computation thanks to its i7 based computer and can do indoor localisation therefore knowing where he is at a venue and thus able to measure geo-located parameters such as temperature, people density, ambient light and air quality. This data can be streamed for real-time analysis. Goes without saying his body is composed of 3D printed parts in addition to other fast prototyping machined components.
Rickie did his debut appearance at the #4yfn Mobile World Congress in Barcelona
