Pepper is an autonomous talking humanoid robot which can be programmed to perceive emotions and adapt its behaviour to the mood of the humans around it. Pepper can identify joy, sadness, anger or surprise and respond appropriately making interactions with humans incredibly natural and intuitive.
It has astonishing flexibility and fluidity of movement and can gesture with the speed and grace of a human while its 3 omni-directional wheels enable the robot to move around freely through 360°. Pepper has a total of 20 degrees of freedom. The robot also has a 10.1 inch touch screen which allows the integration of web pages, applications and images.
Pepper was designed to make interactions with human beings as natural and intuitive as possible and as a result the robot has been used in commercial applications all over the world.
Programming Pepper is easy using the bespoke Choregraphe* software which has been tried and tested on Pepper's smaller cousin NAO. Choregraphe* is used to build and manage the behaviours that you develop for the robot. Advanced users can also develop applications and behaviours using the Python and C++ SDKs.
