Nao - Can mimic
The Nao is all about humanoid robotics. Nao can mimic human behavior and one of its applications will be to assist children with autism wherein humans may lose patience after a certain point of time, says the spokesperson. It is built to bond with people and uses similar expression and behaviour like babies to do so. It can express human emotions like happiness, excitement, sadness, anger, pride and fear.
It features 21 degrees of freedom (DOF), 1 DOF for pelvic, hands that can grip, inertial measurement unit (IMU) and four ultrasonic sensors that provide NAO with stability and positioning within space. It equips a powerful CPU of x86 AMD Geode 500 MHz, along with four microphones, two speakers and two CMOS cameras (640 x 480), for text-to-speech synthesis, sound localization and facial and shape recognition. We tried to interact with Nao, check out how it responded.
It can be used for varied applications such as field surveillance with the use of remote PTZ cameras for situational awareness, giving a bird’s eye view of surroundings with real time recording. It can be used as Hazmat for carrying payload in hostile conditions. Similar kinds of robots were used in Afghanistan and Iraq during hostile conditions. Moreover, its yet another application is oil tank maintenance and inspection.
