NAO is designed to be personalized: add content, using a variety of capacities, enriching his personality and even developing new skills and know-how. NAO is your robot and the Choregraphe software will help you to personalize him.
Moving: NAO has 25 degrees of freedom and a humanoid shape that enable him to move and adapt to the world around him. His inertial unit enables him to maintain his balance and to know whether he is standing up or lying down.
Feeling: The numerous sensors in his head, hands and feet, as well as his sonars, enable him to perceive his environment and get his bearings.
Hearing and speaking: With his 4 directional microphones and loudspeakers, NAO interacts with humans in a completely natural manner, by listening and speaking.
Seeing: NAO is equipped with two cameras that film his environment in high resolution, helping him to recognize shapes and objects.
Connecting: To access the Internet autonomously, NAO is able to use a range of different connection modes (WiFi, Ethernet).
Thinking: We can't really talk about "Artificial Intelligence" with NAO , but the robots are already able to reproduce human behavior.
Anyone can contribute to NAO's development by inventing new forms of use. Though the main applications are developed by the manufacturer SoftBank Robotics, NAO won't grow on his own.
On the contrary, the platform that we offer opens the way for new creative models, aimed primarily at application developers, but not exclusively.
Animators, sound designers, graphic designers, linguists, or even education and reception specialists, people from all disciplines are equally invited to join the SoftBank Robotics community.
Creating, inventing, programming, and putting new content online will make NAO even more interesting!
As of today, more than 20,000 robots are used in multiple industry verticals making NAO the most used humanoid robot worldwide. Its design, capabilities and robustness make it an engaging and smart platform used in education, healthcare and retail.
