When a robot is situated in an environment containing multiple possible interaction partners, it has to make decisions about when to engage specific users and how to detect and react appropriately to actions of the users that might signal the intention to interact. In this demonstration we present the integration of an engagement model in an existing dialog system based on interaction patterns. As a sample scenario, this enables the humanoid robot Nao to play a quiz game with multiple participants.
