We present in this slideshow the RoboShop project. Our ROS-based robot can have multiple uses in a shopping mall. A possible scenario is showcased in video http://youtu.be/XBrnw9wHIhY. We also give an overview of how things work and how we use Pharo, the Smalltalk inspired dynamic language to control the robot.
