58 cm in height, NAO is our first humanoid robot. He has continually been evolving since the beginning of his adventure in 2006. Currently in his 5th version, about 9,000 NAOs have already been sold throughout the world. NAO is an endearing, interactive and personalizable robot companion. Everyone can construct his own experience with specific applications based on his own imagination and needs.
Pepper is a human-shaped robot. He is kindly, endearing and surprising.
We have designed Pepper to be a genuine day-to-day companion, whose number one quality is his ability to perceive emotions.
Pepper is the first humanoid robot capable of recognising the principal human emotions and adapting his behaviour to the mood of his interlocutor.
To date, more than 140 SoftBank Mobile stores in Japan are using Pepper as a new way of welcoming, informing and amusing their customers. Pepper also recently became the first humanoid robot to be adopted in Japanese homes!
Romeo is a 140 cm tall humanoid robot, designed to explore and further research into assisting elderly people and those who are losing their autonomy. Romeo is the fruit of collaboration between numerous French and European laboratories and institutions.
His size was determined so as to enable him to open doors, climb stairs and reach objects on a table.
SoftBank Robotics designs and produces kindly and interactive humanoid robots.
We believe in a future where humanoid robots will assist humans in their day-to-day lives, in their family lives, in their leisure activities and in their work.
Our goal right from the beginning has been to make robots accessible to everyone, the aim being that they will become our daily companions.
Leader in the humanoid robotics market, we offer robots who assist professionals from the worlds of education, research, health, distribution and tourism, as well as helping families and private individuals.
We designed our first robot, NAO, in 2006. As a prime example of this amazing pioneering adventure, almost 9,000 NAOs are currently in use throughout the world, with particular success in the fields of research and education.
In 2009, we launched the ROMEO project in collaboration with research laboratories and institutions, with the goal of intensifying our research into assistance aimed at people facing a loss of autonomy.
We launched in 2014 the first personal emotional robot: Pepper.
SoftBank Robotics (SoftBank Group) currently represents more than 500 employees, with offices in France, Japan, United States and China.
Our ambition was fulfilled this year when Pepper was made available to Japanese consumers.
