A low powered humanoid robot, named NUgus, was tasked with the job of attracting patrons' attention at an event with difficult indoor lighting conditions. A deep neural network for pedestrian detection was implemented on the robot. As patrons came close to the robot, the robot would wave at them and try to establish eye contact with the closest person.
