What is NAO?
The fruit of a unique combination of mechanical engineering and software, NAO is a character made up of a multitude of sensors, motors and software piloted by a made-to-measure operating system: NAOqi OS.
Moving : 25 degrees of freedom and a humanoid shape that enable him to move and adapt to the world around him. His inertial unit enables him to maintain his balance and to know whether he is standing up or lying down.
Feeling : The numerous sensors in his head, hands and feet, as well as his sonars, enable him to perceive his environment and get his bearings.
Hearing and speaking : With his 4 directional microphones and loudspeakers, NAO interacts with humans in a completely natural manner, by listening and speaking.
Seeing : NAO is equipped with two cameras that film his environment in high resolution, helping him to recognize shapes and objects.
Connecting : To access the Internet autonomously, NAO is able to use a range of different connection modes (WiFi, Ethernet).
Thinking : We can now really talk about "Artificial Intelligence" with NAO and human like interactions.
NAO is designed to be personalized: adding content, using a variety of capacities, enriching his personality and even developing new skills and know-how. NAO is your robot and the Choregraphe software will help you to personalize him.
Engage and Inspire STEM Learning with NAO
Robots in general, and NAO in particular, will help you introduce the complexity of certain scientific subjects in a fun way (mechanics, physics, programming etc.). They will also enable you to illustrate certain abstract concepts in a concrete manner.
NAO naturally arouses the students' interest and motivates them to get actively involved in learning through projects and teamwork.
NAO comes with its own software suite, called Choregraphe, which offers an intuitive 'drag and drop' interface for programming the robot, along with its own curriculum and textbooks. Advanced students can also program using Python and C++.
This turnkey solution gives students a great deal of excitement about STEM!
Meet NAO for Education & STEM
NAO the leading platform for Robotics & STEM in the classroom!
NAO is multi-lingual; advanced students can use C++, C#, and Python to program NAO.
For years we have been working with the industry's leading expert providers of NAO based Educational and STEM Curricula.
Science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) education continues to grow in importance in the high-tech, fast paced world of today...and in the future.
It can be difficult to find educational tools that make it easy for teachers to address the standards in all four STEM areas while holding a student's interest. The NAO Humanoid Robot along with our STEMBIOTICS curriculum provide schools and teachers a great way to reach students of all ages with an in-depth resource for learning STEM concepts and skills.
Not only does NAO interest and motivate students, but it provides and excellent way to teach STEM concepts while incorporating language arts - making STEM become STEAM.
We offer a variety of NAO robot focused curriculum solutions for late elementary, middle, and high school.
Educator's Kit for NAO
The NAO Robot comes with everything you need to start using NAO in your classroom or research facility today!
NAO is the teacher's new ally. Right from the beginning, NAO has won the hearts of classes and teachers from infant schools through to universities.
Like a new learning tool, he helps students to learn about programming as well as assisting the teachers in holding their students' attention while teaching.
Creating a dance or piloting NAO to make him catch objects while analyzing his environment makes learning code all the more stimulating, attractive and concrete
Learning to count, tell a story or even to write while having fun becomes all the more fascinating and enthralling with NAO.
