Robots autonomously navigating in public spaces need to use ap- propriate nonverbal and verbal behaviours to signal their intentions during incidental encounters with bystanders and passersby. We introduce our initial system design concepts regarding social navi- gation, verbal communication and an avatar face and present our initial experimental observations for robots handling incidental encounters in the environment of a clinic.
