Concierge is an autonomous robot head intended to monitor the corridor in front of the office door, following people that passes. When somebody comes close to the door, if the person is inside the office the head nods, otherwise it denies.

The first version of the head was simply smart, while with the second version two characters have been investigated: a funky one (nervous and hasty) and a graybeard (calm and a little bit snoothy). A third version is ongoing, together with the development of a full control of motors that wil provide tools to better characterize the head.


The version 1 head has been implemented by Mattia Sirimarco.

The basic shape of the version 2 head is by Maximiliano Romero (, Department od Design, Phy.Co. Lab

Part of version 1 (antennas, nose, and eyes) and the funky hairs of version2 head have been designed by Andrea Bonarini.

All the rest of Version 2 has been implemented by Idil Su Erenlig, Turkish visiting bachelor student at Polimi.

Version 3 has been developed by Filippo Leporati.
