What’s new - 1.12.3

NAO firmware

After a few weeks of life, NAO V4 needed to be settled, adjusted.

  • Thermal model has been updated, in order to safely allow him to go further before saying “Motor hot”.
  • Current limits of the motors have been pushed forward, so NAO V4 should be strong enough for the most difficult poses.
  • Head Fan temperature/speed settings have been also updated in order to minimize unnecessary noise.
  • WiFi transmission from the robot highly improved.

So don’t forget to update your robot: Updating robot system .

Choregraphe

Improved boxes

Walk to and Walk Toward boxes take less time to stop: in order to make NAO react more quickly, Walk to and Walk Toward boxes now use ALMotion stopWalk() to stop.
