Pishrobot: Hushmand Afzar Robotics

Hushmand Afzar is distributor of Aldebaran Products in Iran.

NAO Aldebaran

After years of research, Aldebaran Robotics has developed Nao® a 58 cm (23’’) tall biped robot. It’s a unique combination of hardware and software in a great design.
Nao stands tall in all points amongst its robotic brethren. The hardware has been built from the ground up with the latest technologies providing great fluidity in its movements and offering a wide range of sensors. Platform agnostic, it can be programmed and controlled using Linux, Windows or Mac OS and comes with complete software and documentation.

MOVEMENT
Nao comes with 25 degrees of freedom for great mobility. The inertial sensor provides great stability while moving and enables positioning within space. Sonars and FSRs allow Nao to detect its environment and to navigate seamlessly.
His state-of-the-art onboard actuators give Nao extreme precision in its movements.

INTERACTION

Nao features embedded software modules allowing text to speech, sound localization, visual pattern and coloured shape detection, obstacle detection (based on the two channel sonar system) and visual effects or communication through the many LEDs.

PROGRAMMING

Nao contains an open framework which allows distributed software modules to interact together seamlessly. Depending on the user’s expertise, Nao can be controlled via Choregraphe®, our user friendly behavior editor, by programming C++ modules, or by interacting with a rich API from scripting languages.
In addition to the high level API which allows users to make Nao walk and balance, advanced users can take advantage of low level access to sensors and actuators and can, if they wish, replace our code with custom adaptations.
In order to allow users to validate motion sequences, simulators are available for Microsoft Robotics Studio and Webots.

BODY AND MULTIMEDIA

Nao can be personalized with different colors (red, blue or customized colors...). His integrated multimedia components (Hi-Fi speakers system, microphones system, 2 digital cameras) allow many different capabilities like speech, playing music, localizing sound sources or face detection programs.

NAO Evolution

NAO Evolution, the new generation of NAO humanoid robot has been distributed with NAOqi 2.0 ™ OS. More than 5000 NAO robot are being used in 70 countries for reaserches, education and robocup competitions. NAOqi 2.0 which is used in other production of ALDEBARAN, like pepper, is able to communicate with human by natural voice. Conversation motor, emotion motor and automotic life, identifing and recognition the faces and shapes, finding the voice source location and estimate the distance, poweful battery, poweful body, low movement noise and using fingers professionaly are the improved abilities of this generation.
