Case studies for Active8 Robots

Nick Weldin

“You can use Baxter without doing a lot of reading first, so it’s very practical and “hands-on” which both the staff and students like.”

Stefan Wermter and Cornelius Weber

“Nao supports theoretical and practical lectures on artificial intelligence, helping robots, hybrid intelligent systems, and many others given by our research group.”

Prof. Tony Belpaeme

“One of the nice things about NAO is that it can cover the principals of programming with secondary school kids, all the way through to very large academic research projects; and at a price that is incredibly affordable”

Greg Armstrong

“What NAO brought to our department was the next generation; the cutting edge of robotic technology. Something that our students felt was the stuff of films rather than something that could be at the heart of their learning experience.”

Professor Axel Pinz and Thomas Höll

“While in Computer Vision and Image Understanding research, the output is often in the form of processed/augmented images, NAO is well suited to demonstrate success of computer vision algorithms by actions, motion, or by voice output.”

Professor Axel Pinz

“There certainly is an extremely high potential for this kind of hand-held, active inspection of objects by a humanoid robot, including human-robot interaction, home and service robotics, edutainment, active inspection, and active surveillance.”

Sarah Pinkney

“Students returned to English lessons with a renewed energy; not only were they even more ‘thirsty’ for knowledge, understanding and an opportunity to showcase their literacy skills - relationships had developed too. ”

Heni Ben Amor, David Vogt and Erik Berger

“The objective of this research project is to capture the way humans interact with each other during conversations or during physical interaction.”
