AbstractA humanoid appearing robot adapted for movement relative to a ground support surface includes a removable passenger carrying platform attached to a base portion thereof. The platform serves to both provide the robot with a passenger carrying capability that enhances the entertainment value of the robot and to enhance the stability of the robot during movement relative to a ground surface. The platform may be removed when the passenger carrying capability is not desired or when it is necessary to maneuver the robot in confined spaced, e.g., the interior of a passenger carrying aircraft. Arm-like members are articulatably connected to a torso portion of the robot and include articulatable hand-like members for grasping and releasing small objects. The arm-like members are articulatable to a forwardly extended position to provide lateral support for a passenger on the platform. An articulatable head-like module is mounted on the torso portion to complement the robot's humanoid form.
