In order to observe spatial relationships in social humanrobot interactions, a field trial was carried out within the CosmoCaixa Science Museum in Barcelona. The follow me episodes studied showed that the space configurations formed by guide and visitors walking together did not always fit the robot social affordances and navigation requirements to perform the guidance successfully, thus additional communication prompts are considered to regulate effectively the walking together and follow me behaviors.
