This house in Hertfordshire is home to some pretty unusual inhabitants - robots!

Robot vacuums, dogs and humanoid children are all regular visitors and the house is kitted out with more than 60 sensors, which the robots can be programmed to respond to.

It's all part of an experiment by robotics professor, Kerstin Dautenhahn, who wants to look into how ordinary people get along with machines in everyday life.
