On $ 10^{th} April 2007 $ the Snout platform was tested as part of an event organised by Proboscis[35]. Two performers dressed up in carnival costumes and carried the Snout platform on the path outlined in figure 5.2 to collect data. The low power consumption of the platform was impressive in comparison to Feral Robots[36]. The gathered data was later mapped for the visualisation of sensed pollution. Figure 5.2 shows the carbon monoxide readings from this trial.

The performance was followed by presentations outlining the wider context of the Snout project as well as displaying the results of the trial to members of the public.
