CROWDBOT, an European Collaborative project enables robots to freely navigate and assist humans in crowded areas. - Today’s moving robots stop when a human, or any obstacle is too close, to avoid impact. This prevents robots from entering packed areas and effectively performing in a high dynamic environment. CROWDBOT aims to fill in the gap in knowledge on close interactions between robots and humans in motion.
SoftBank Robotics Europe was present at the “We Are Developers” conference in Berlin last week!
A Reader's Digest about the NAOqi Release Note and QiSDK and relevant information for partners and developers. - NAOqi is Pepper’s Operating System, the main software that runs on the robot and controls it. QiSDK is the specific software development kit for Pepper android (aka Pepper QiSDK). This public Release Note intends to give a brief review of the last notable changes impacting developers.

A new Support page to help EMEA users through their robot experience
A Research project about Pepper and NAO immersive teleoperation - A new immersive teleoperation solution based on Extreme Learning Machine (ELM), a Machine Learning technique, is introduced for Pepper and NAO robots. Immersive teleoperation is defined as a robot remote control that renders the operator the sensation of being inside the teleoperated environment and providing a feeling of being the robot itself. The solution is independent of other mapping approaches (e.g. inverse kinematics) and the user’s whole body is used for the robot control. Even with scarce training data, the solution returns satisfactory results in both precision and computational speed.
