Robot Recruits Students for University of Toledo

Posted 24 Jan 2008 at 21:46 UTC by steve Share This

A Toledo Blade article describes the newest member of the University of Toledo's undergraduate admissions recruiting team. It's a White Box Robotics 914 PC-BOT, modified by Ted Ronau, that "looks a bit like R2-D2 from Star Wars films. But UT's version has a 19-inch monitor attached that displays an avatar modeled after Mr. Ronau's colleague, Roy Schneider, the manager of medical illustration at UT." For more details of the modifications, see the 914 Large Monitor Project article that appeared last year on the 914 PC BOT website. Ted is already thinking about a new version of the robot that would have more capabilities and be built by students as part of an engineering course.
