Exciting week for Nao and Aldebaran

Posted on 11/03/2011 by carlos-31 in Humanoids
There have been two noteworthy developments in the last week for Aldebaran and Nao, their humanoid platform. Let's have a look at this exciting news.

Nao Charging Station

As announced in Tokyo last weekend, Nao get's a charging station that allows the robot to autonomously recharge itself when needed. The station is still a prototype and is not available to outsiders at this time. As shown in the video, Nao can connect itself to the magnetic plug and move freely in the vicinity of the station. The robot knows the station's position by visually recognizing Naomarks (special markers) http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0xHaxTM7KH8

Nao Present in more than 200 Universities

Aldebaran announced that their little humanoid is now present in more than 200 universities around the world. Nao is being used in all sorts of academic activities. This video sums it up very well. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4No9q8LVSDA
