Albebaran makes robots. They will be at the Ci2 Lab on October 17th at 11am to show off the great humanoid robots they make. Thier vision states that...

"According to the United Nations, robotics will be the technological revolution of the 21st century, just as the automobile was at the turn of the 20th century. As populations age, rapid changes in demographics are taking place. The ultimate dream of creating an artificial companion to assist humans is no longer science fiction. It is a realistic response to the needs of an aging society.

The convergence of technologies such as voice and visual recognition is leading to a new generation of interactive devices. Nonetheless, although robots are already common in the industrial sector today, there remain major challenges to overcome before robots become true personal assistants.

To provide the robotics industry with the platform, software, and tools to explore and develop the applications of tomorrow, Aldebaran Robotics designs, produces, and commercializes autonomous humanoid robots."

... and Aldebaran is making robots today such as the--

NAO a programmable, 57-cm tall humanoid robot with the following key components:

  • Body with 25 degrees of freedom (DOF) whose key elements are electric motors and actuators
  • Sensor network, including 2 cameras, 4 microphones, sonar rangefinder, 2 IR emitters and receivers, 1 inertial board, 9 tactile sensors, and 8 pressure sensors
  • Various communication devices, including voice synthesizer, LED lights, and 2 high-fidelity speakers
  • Intel ATOM 1,6ghz CPU (located in the head) that runs a Linux kernel and supports Aldebaran’s proprietary middleware (NAOqi)
  • Second CPU (located in the torso)
  • 27,6-watt-hour battery that provides NAO with 1.5 or more hours of autonomy, depending on usage

Check Aldebaran's robots out at: NAO H25
