The NAO6 is the latest generation of the brilliant NAO humanoid robot family. Having continuously evolved from the 1st generation, this 6th generation model gives even more performance and greater capabilities than ever before. Improvements have been made in virtually every area as well as a host of new features such as a dual-mode camera and auto-focus.

NAO is still the most widely used humanoid robot for academic purposes worldwide. The robot creates a unique human-robot interaction experience and is a renowned teaching aid for use in areas such as robotics, systems and control and computer sciences. Use NAO to explore programming, sensors, interaction with people and the environment and much more.

The robot is capable of autonomous movement, and can converse with anyone as well as identifying objects and interacting with its environment. Anyone can write the programs that let NAO know what you want it to do, the graphical interface of the Choregraphe software.

Students can explore event-based, sequential or parallel programming using the configurable behaviour boxes. You can also create your own behaviours, as well as using Python to write more complex scripts.

NAO robot can be programmed by either connecting an Ethernet cable between the robot and your computer, or via a WiFi connection. The software suite is compatible with Windows, Mac and Linux.

NAO can only be supplied to schools, colleges and universities. To find out more, please contact or call us and speak to a member of the Education Team.
