Remote control
Remote control
Remote Control refers to the ability to provide control to a robot from a remote location. Remote is a relative term however, and can apply to short distance, say from across the room, to large distances, such as across the world or through outer space.

The Remote Control most of us are familiar with is used to control our TV's, stereos, or DVD players, but that's not to say those devices can't control robots as well. These particular remote controllers use Infared light to transmit a signal and must maintain a line of sight with the receiver. Depending on which type of function you choose on the remote, it will emit a particular pulse sequence of light from an IR LED that when directed at the receiver, will read that signal and process it.

Infared remote controllers are generally fairly cheap to implement into a robot and can provide a lot of functionality. The drawback of this type of system is that it only works with a direct like of sight, and is limited to short distances.

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.
