WHO IS NAO?
NAO is a 58-cm tall, 5-kg humanoid robot developed by Aldebaran Robotics. NAO is a completely programmable, autonomous, and interactive robot. NAO is used today in research and education around the world in prestigious universities and research institutes. Aldebaran Robotics is working on a general public version of NAO.
WHAT CAN NAO DO?
NAO can see, hear, speak, feel, and communicate. Using the latest and most innovative technology, NAO is a unique combination of hardware and software designed, developed, and built by Aldebaran Robotics.
NAO’s special characteristics, including fluid movement, sensory perception and obstacle avoidance, and full programmability using Choregraphe, one-of-a-kind software developed by Aldebaran, places NAO in a league of its own. Platform agnostic, NAO can be programmed and controlled in Linux, Windows, or Mac OS and comes with complete software and documentation.
WHAT ARE THE USES OF NAO?
NAO is the most widely used humanoid robot for academic purposes worldwide. More than 3000 NAOs have been sold to 550 universities and laboratories in over 60 countries to serve as research tools.
Universities using NAO include Harvard and Brown in the United States, University of Wales in the United Kingdom, University of Freiburg in Germany, and Zhejiang University and Tongji University in China.
Interactivity and a fully programmable humanoid form are the key features that explain NAO’s continued success in a wide range of projects and applications in research and education.
