Nao Robot Video Demonstrates Improvements

The Nao robot has been improved by Aldebaran Robotics. Take a look at this video that shows improved behaviors, longer arms and more histrionic expressions.


(NAO and improved robot)

With Choregraphe and NAO's SDK, whatever your students' level in programming and whatever the language you are teaching (C++, URBI Script, Python, etc.), you will be able to explore multiple areas of research in robotics and investigate NAO's multiple capacities: vision, audio treatment, control, planning, navigation...

NAO is a tool that will help you and your students reach satisfying results in a quick time, thus helping the best students of your university to strongly appreciate computer sciences and applied mathematics on functioning machines.

NAO will bring you the possibility to test in the real world any program that you or your students have designed, thus enriching the process of learning and the experience that students have of learning and doing research.

At $15,000 Nao is a bit more than your typical NXT Mindstorms robotics kit, but it has very impressive specifications.
