A Thermistor is a temperature sensor that can be used to monitor internal temperatures of the robot. Usually thermistors are used on battery packs to monitor the it while charging and discharging. If a battery pack gets too hot, the robot or charging system will acknowledge that and take steps to reduce the temperature (stop charging, shutdown the system, etc.). A thermistor is an important element in the battery monitoring system.

Thermistors are made from special semiconductor material that changes resistance with temperature. As the temperature of the thermistor changes, the resistance of the device will change - which you robot can detect. More information about thermistors can be read below:

NAO is a humanoid robot

• Embedded Computer and WiFi included
• Vision system, voice recognition, Text to Speech and more standard
• Functional hands can pick up and grasp objects
• Only educational and research customers may purchase this product. See bottom of page for details.

The NAO Humanoid Robot from Aldebaran Robotics is a companion, assistant and research platform. If the full-size personal butler is still a vision of the future, ALDEBARAN’s robots will already provide a perfect platform to deliver a range of daily services. With 25 degrees of freedom, NAO is capable of executing a wide range of movements (walking, sitting, standing up, dancing, avoiding obstacles, kicking, seizing objects, etc.)

Equipped as standard with an embedded computer and wifi connection, NAO is fully Autonomous and can establish a secure connection to the Internet to ownload and broadcast content.

Fitted with two speakers and several microphones, NAO has a quality sound system to play music. It is equipped with a voice recognition system that locates where the sound is coming from, so that he can turn his head towards the Speaker or origin of the sound. He has a text to speech function so he can interact with its environment verbally by pronouncing any text sent to him, messages, e-mail, books, newspapers, etc.

The NAO Humanoid robot from Aldebaran Robotics has a vision system allowing him to capture and send photos, video streams, recognize colored objects, detect and recognize faces and communicate with the PC or the web (downloading files, behaviors, sending images in real time, etc.)

NAO is fully autonomous; it can find his way around a room while avoiding
obstacles. It is also capable of going alone to its recharge base when its battery is low.

Nao is being introduced on the market as the ideal introduction to robots and aspires to eventually, become an autonomous family companion. Finally, with more sophisticated functions, it will adopt a new role, assisting humans with daily tasks. Featured with an intuitive, dedicated programming interface, “Choregraphe”, and a full SDK which connects to NAOqi, the entire family will be able to enjoy the robotic experience. Full of new and advanced technology, the NAO robot will also satisfy the most demanding techno-addict’s expectations.
