Pepper and NAO easily create an empathetic link with students, teachers and researchers by their eye-catching appearances, moderate sizes and humanoid behaviours. Proven by various studies and researches, main characteristics of our humanoid robots meet the instructional goals in education. Our 17 000+ Pepper and NAO in the global education market are enabling new ways for pedagogy in classrooms.

Pepper and NAO are versatile and high-performing robots to meet the expectations of teachers and researchers. They are advanced platforms for the in-depth study such as human-machine interaction, cognitive computing and autonomous navigation, etc.

Humanoid robots: the future of education

Pepper and NAO are the perfect assistants for educators. Their visual and intuitive interface makes the content creation process easier, allowing customized teaching activities on either a one-to-one basis or small groups. Humanoid robots introduce new and attractive pedagogical topics and apply PBL (Project-Based Learning) approaches. They help students develop problem solving and analytical skills, required to succeed in a knowledge-based and highly technological society.

With tailored and flexible teaching programs, Pepper and NAO improve self-motivation in learning STEAM (Sciences, Technologies, Engineering, Arts and Maths) subjects and encourage development of creativity.

Advanced development platform

Our robots are fully programmable with a graphical interface, or directly with the Software Development Kit (SDK) and coding tools:

  • Choregraphe: an IDE (Integrated Development Environment) to program with an easy drag-and-drop interface and with Python.
  • Software Development Kit (SDK): gives access to the complete set of features of Pepper and NAO. It is available in Python and C++.
  • Pepper SDK for Android: an entirely integrated plugin for Android Studio to add compatibility with Pepper to Android Applications and develop in Java or Kotlin.

Effective solution to inclusive education

Pepper and NAO easily create empathetic link with kids, inspire and drive them for physical and intellectual exercises, develop social and emotional skills. Humanoid robots are already used to implement effective inclusive practices and promote education with IEP (Individualized Education Program) for students with disabilities such as autism, emotional and behavioural disorders.

Our emotional robots help children reduce shyness, reluctance, un-confidence and frustration, improving social skills and self-esteem. Pepper and NAO are good vectors to encourage acceptance of special education in regular classroom, developing positive attitudes and perceptions.
