Abstract

Robotics platforms are becoming more and more present in people everyday life. A reflection on multimedia technologies that are currently used in the museum experiences has been made. In this paper, we present and describe a robotic system, called "Virgil" and a remote tele-operation application used as a support instrument for the museum guide in order to enhance the museum experience and increase the cultural value of the territorial heritage. The application is based on a Cloud Robotic infrastructure that contains ROS nodes and exposes a set of APIs to the user.
