NAO Robot - Evolution V5 driving a Car

Manufacturer: Aldebaran Robotics

Colors

Today, NAO is one of the leading humanoid robots being used in research and education worldwide.

Robotics represents the fast growing segment of advanced technology used in both education and research.

NAO Evolution is the ideal companion for teaching Robotics as well as STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math) topics to all levels; primary, secondary, vocational, and higher education.

By using NAO, teachers and researchers will appreciate and investigate multiple capabilities through this platform.

ATTRACTIVE PLATFORM • FULLY AND EASILY PROGRAMMABLE • HIGHLY INTERACTIVE • MULTIPLE SENSORS • ONBOARD CONTROL • READY TO USE

NAO is equipped with many sensors: Tactile Sensors, Ultrasonic sensors, A Gyro, An Accelerometer, Force Sensors, Infrared sensors, 2 HD Cameras, 4 Microphones and high accuracy digital encoders on each joint.

It has two processors on board: an Intel Atom 1.6Ghz (The main computer includes SSD drive, WiFi, Bluetooth and wired network) and an additional ARM-9 processor in its chest.

The advanced software package includes a full SDK and API in Java, C++, C# (.Net), Matlab, and Python. Every robot comes standard with Choregraphe, an award winning software that makes it easy to program the robot using a drag and drop interface which simplifies the programming for new and advanced users alike. The software package includes an advanced simulation software based on Webots.

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.

ASK NAO

•ASK NAO (Autism Solution for Kids) was created by Aldebaran Robotics for the NAO robot, in order to support teachers with in-class tasks and help children with autism reach new levels of greatness.
•ASK NAO is designed for schools and healthcare institutions ready to drive special education into the future.
NAO becomes a real user-friendly assistant to support teachers with daily in-class tasks, facilitate communication with parents, and bridges the gap with children with autism so they can reach new levels of greatness.

FOR TEACHERS

Cross-curriculum, project based, hands-on learning
Enhanced effectiveness in reaching teaching goals
Increased student engagement, female and male alike

FOR TEACHING & 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 over 6 years of research, NAO is one of the most advanced humanoid robots ever created. He is fully programmable and comes in two colors: Red and Blue.


About The NAO Robot Family

NAO is state-of-the-art robotics technology and works straight out of the box. The latest version - NAO Evolution V5 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. The curriculum that our partner has developed enables teachers to begin teaching any STEM related topic right away with NAO.

Beginners can use Choregraphe, a user-friendly behavior editor. An easy drag-and-drop method allows users to simply pick-up boxes of pre-programmed behaviors 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 behaviors 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.
