NAO is a humanoid robot developed by the French robotics company Aldebaran Robotics. NAO can be programmed so that it acts autonomously, or independently of human control and, according to the manufacturers, is the most widely used robot of its type for academic purposes worldwide.
My second task during work experience was to get two cute Wall·E like bots up and running. The plan was to have them whizzing around whilst blaring out music. These bots seemed relatively cute and simple compared to the behemoth of the hexapod, so I began trying to fix them.
Having had no prior experience with any robotics, it was quite daunting to see a huge hexapod lying in front of me on my first day of work experience. This hexapod had been abandoned in a box for many years, wires were spewed out across its lifeless back and its circuitry was all exposed. It was my job to nurture this poor robotic ant back to health.
