Humanoid Robots for Education

Pepper and NAO, robots for education

Pepper and NAO easily create an empathetic link with students, teachers and researchers by their eye-catching appearances, moderate sizes and humanoid behaviours.

Proven by various studies and researches, main characteristics of our humanoid robots meet the instructional goals in education. Our 17 000+ Pepper and NAO in the global education market are enabling new ways for pedagogy in classrooms.

Pepper and NAO are versatile and high-performing robots to meet the expectations of teachers and researchers. They are advanced platforms for the in-depth study such as human-machine interaction, cognitive computing and autonomous navigation, etc.

Humanoid robots: the future of education

 

Optimized teaching-aid tool

Pepper and NAO are the perfect assistants for educators. Their visual and intuitive interface makes the content creation process easier, allowing customized teaching activities on either a one-to-one basis or small groups.

Humanoid robots introduce new and attractive pedagogical topics and apply PBL (Project-Based Learning) approaches. They help students develop  problem solving and analytical skills, required to succeed in a knowledge-based and highly technological society.

With tailored and flexible teaching programs, Pepper and NAO improve self-motivation in learning STEAM (Sciences, Technologies, Engineering, Arts and Maths) subjects and encourage development of creativity.

Advanced development platform

Our robots are fully programmable with a graphical interface, or directly with the Software Development Kit (SDK) and coding tools:

  • Choregraphe: an IDE (Integrated Development Environment) to program with an easy drag-and-drop interface and with Python.
  • Software Development Kit (SDK): gives access to the complete set of features of Pepper and NAO. It is available in Python and C++.
  • Pepper SDK for Android: an entirely integrated plugin for Android Studio to add compatibility with Pepper to Android Applications and develop in Java or Kotlin.


 

Effective solution to inclusive education

Pepper and NAO easily create empathetic link with kids, inspire and drive them for physical and intellectual exercises, develop social and emotional skills.

Humanoid robots are already used to implement effective inclusive practices and promote education with IEP (Individualized Education Program) for students with disabilities such as autism, emotional and behavioural disorders.

Our emotional robots help children reduce shyness, reluctance, un-confidence and frustration, improving social skills and self-esteem. Pepper and NAO are good vectors to encourage acceptance of special education in regular classroom, developing positive attitudes and perceptions.

NAO and Pepper's Features

 

NAO:

NAO was conceived to move and adapt to his environment, thanks to the 7 touch sensors placed all over his build.

A great communicator, his omnidirectional microphones and his speakers allow him to engage in enriched dialogues and interactions. NAO can listen and understand in all kinds of situation and can speak clearly in more than 20 languages.

Equipped with two 2D cameras, he can recognize shapes, objects and even people, enhancing interactivity.

Standing at 58cm tall, NAO is the perfect teaching assistant. His looks makes him very engaging to pupils of all ages and teachers.

NAO will allow teachers and students to create content and acquire multi-disciplinary skills, such as learning programing or developing social and emotional skills thanks to his human-like behaviour and his friendly attitude.

Fits perfectly for: primary, secondary, higher education, research and specialised education.
