Robot Tours...Boffins from the Oxford Robotics Institute test Betty the autonomous robot around Blenheim Palace.<br />
<br />
Historic Blenheim Palace is embracing new technology by trying out a new robotic tour guide.<br />
<br />
'Betty' will be interacting with visitors at the Oxfordshire UNESCO World Heritage Site as part of a five-day trial this week.<br />
<br />
The robot is greeting visitors in the Great Hall and providing snippets of information about the palace and its history, as well as taking photos with the public and uploading them to social media.
