KUL PR2 Works on Task Specification
One of Willow Garage's PR2s went to Katholieke Universiteit Leuven and they are working on cooperation between humans and robots.

To facilitate the experiment, the team will integrate both a localization algorithm (MTTL) into the ROS and the OpenRobot simulator.
