Introducing NAO Next Gen

If you’re interested in service robotics, there are strong chances that you already met the programmable humanoid NAO robot. Since its creation Aldebaran Robotics in 2007,
four versions have already been released, the fourth being NAO Next Gen.
NAO Next Gen has 25 degrees of freedom, 2 HD cameras, 4 microphones, 2 hi-Fi speakers, runs an Intel ATOM 1.6 GHz CPU, WiFi connectivity, 9 tactile sensors, 8 pressure sensors,
a voice synthesizer and an autonomy that can last up to 1.5 hours. You can see NAO showing its key features in the following video:

All of these key features enable him to walk in all directions, talk in 19 languages, detect faces and shapes, protect itself when it falls and localize sound source.
Since building robotics application can be challenging, Aldebaran Robotics created a multiplatform (Windows, Linux and Mac OS) and multi-languages SDK (C++, Python, Java and .Net) to create applications for your NAO Next Gen robot. You can also easily take advantage of NAO’s features by using the intuitive programming interface Chorégraphe (included in the Software suite ).
