Arvana hosted the first ever public interaction session of The Humanoid Robot Nao on 20-21st May. Children and their parents enjoyed the interaction and learned many things about Nao.
The program was organized in the association of Techno India NJR College’s Robotic Department who are teaching Hindi language to Nao.
Who is NAO?
58 cm in height, NAO is our first humanoid robot. He has continually been evolving since the beginning of his adventure in 2006.
Currently in his 5th version, about 10 000 NAO have already been sold throughout the world.
NAO is an interactive companion robot.
7 senses for natural interaction
The fruit 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.
Moving : 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 recognise 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 behaviour.
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 personalise him.
