The CIO's welcoming note


Welcome to DevCenter, a tech site made for robotics developers, focusing on the famous Pepper & NAO robots!


Our aim is to provide the official technical information so you can use your favourite robots to the best of their abilities, for whatever use case you can think of!


With this latest release, we enter a new cycle of quarterly updated content. You will, of course, find the technical documentation, but also a lot of tools & tips, through theoretical lessons, practical tutorials, and articles.
This edition will give you the opportunity to develop your animation skills on your robot, with Animation Editors & Lottie.
In addition to the previous lessons about Conversation, you will be able to go further by mastering the robot's prosody.
Last but not least, we shared about our internal "API Challenge": you will learn how to plug various third-party technologies into Pepper. To do so, you will follow the steps of an intern at SBRE, who tested solutions week after week, from scratch to effective demos!


We sincerely hope that you enjoy reading and trying out our tools & tips as much as we did writing and sharing them!
Stay tuned for the next quarter release, with lots of content already under validation, and even some insight on our internal R&D.
We wish you a good reading, enjoy & take care.

This is a way of checking how easy it is to integrate technology with Pepper. _ Read Quentin's reports
