The result of a unique combination of mechanical engineering and software, NAO is a character made up of a multitude of sensors, motors, and software piloted by a made-to-measure operating system: NAOqi OS.
The pack includes:
Fully-programmable humanoid robot
HD Cameras, tactile sensors, position sensors, microphones, force sensitive resistors, sonars
Drag&Drop, C++, Python, Java
1 NAO robot, 1 Choregraphe Software License, 1 Charger, 1 Battery, Full SDK
Training available as an option
Available for purchase
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 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 its 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!
