NAO is a programmable humanoid robot manufactured by the french robotics company Aldebaran . The Academics Edition that we utilize since 2008 at the AG AI features 25 degrees of freedom and hosts a large variety of sensors. Within the HUMAVIPS EU project, we developed in collaboration with Aldebaran Robotics a new stereo vision head and an accompanying distributed software architecture to efficiently access NAOs sensors and actuators to facilitate research on multi-modal perception and human-robot interaction.
At the AGAI we use Nao as a sport trainer giving instructions and as a museums guide that engages visitors and autonomously reacts to their behavior.
