Advantages to using NAO

For Students:

  • Hands-on experience by connecting theory with practice to discover a wide range of fields linked to robotics such as computer science, mechanics, electronics or control.
  • Inspiring a high level of motivation & interest for engineer careers. For example: studying control to grasp objects or computing matrix or face detection to get NAO moving become exciting projects
  • Fostering team work, project management, problem solving and communication skills.

For Teachers:

  • Projects or labs based approach for teaching Robotics and Computer Science 
  • Improvement of achievement & learning effectiveness
  • Increasing of female student enrollment and student engagement

For Teaching and Research

Computer sciences, mechanics, electronics, and control are already at the core of the NAO platform. Our curriculum used in conjunction with NAO allows students to develop a structured approach to finding solutions and adapting a wide range of cross-sectional educational content.

Robot Fascination

Humanoid robots have always fascinated people especially students with new applications and incredible inventions. Now technology has made a huge leap forward. Stemming from 6 years of research, NAO is one of the most advanced humanoid robots ever created. He is fully programmable, open and autonomous.

Success Stories

 

About the NAO Robot Family

NAO is state-of-the-art robotics technology and works straight out of the box. The latest version - NAO V5 Evolution provides better computing power, and more capability to help teachers to engage students in STEM programs such as Computer Science, Mathematics or Engineering. NAO offers a multi-platform and multi-level programming environment that allows users to create any kind of behaviors by using the features of the platform.

Beginners can use Choregraphe, a user-friendly behaviour editor. An easy drag-and-drop method allows users to simply pick-up boxes of pre-programmed behaviours and to create complete sequences of behaviors. They can also program their own behavior in Python language, and then save it into the library. NAOSim 3D simulator is interfaced with Choregraphe to let users test NAO’s behavior in a virtual environment. Users can modify the environment, insert and edit objects and simulate NAO's behaviours before sending command to the real robot.

Advanced users can program NAO in C++ and .Net languages and directly access to NAOqi (NAO framework) APIs. The APIs give the user low level access to NAO’s sensors and actuators. Users can also program NAO with other software including: Webots, Matlab and Microsoft Robotics Studio.

What You Get:

  • One blue NAO robot
  • One Choreographe software licence
  • One battery and charger
  • 2-year warranty from Aldebaran Robotics (the unit must be serviced at their facility in Boston, MA)
