NAO Open Source

Aldebaran Robotics shares source code with its community.

Five years of development in embedded software for humanoid robots shared with fellow researchers and developers.NAO Open Sources

(May 13, 2011 – ICRA Shanghai, China) Aldebaran Robotics, the world-leading European humanoid robotics company announced at the 2011 IEEE International Conference on Robotics and Automation its decision to share a significant part of its source code with the research and developer community by the end of 2011.

“We will release our software as OPEN SOURCE to allow researchers, teachers, and developers to adapt and extend our software according to their needs and knowledge, said Bruno Maisonnier, the founder and CEO of Aldebaran Robotics. “Building robotics applications is challenging: applications are built upon many state-of-the-art complex technologies like speech recognition, object recognition, grasping, navigation and mapping. Applications need to be secure and be able to run in a constrained environment with limited resources. With over five years of experience in developing embedded systems for robotics platforms, we want to share our middleware, our core communication library, our cross-platform build tools and other essential modules with researchers, developers and emerging projects in humanoid robotics”, he added.

NAOqi, the embedded software on NAO, includes a highly cross-platform, fast, secure, reliable and distributed robotics framework which provides a comprehensive foundation for developers to leverage and improve NAO’s functionality.
