• Exeter - New Hampshire - US
EXETER, N.H. - Nov. 7, 2018 - PRLog -- ChartaCloud ROBOTTECA today announced the availability of the new BLOCKLY software development application for programming behaviors for the NAO humanoid robot. The NAO robot a product of SoftBank Robotics is in use in over 50 countries speaking 19 languages. The new application called askNAO BLOCKLY, was developed by ERM Robotique of Carpentras, France and will be formally introduced in the U.S. and Canadian markets at the Third Annual 2018 NAO Robot User and Developer Congress being held in Boston, Massachusetts, November 1-3, 2018. Blockly utilizes visual object 'blocks' that are linked together to make writing software easier and generate PYTHON code which is popular with NAO users and developers. A major feature of askNAO BLOCKLY is its capacity to enable robot-user interactions/dialogues via a tablet interface.
"BLOCKLY first introduced in 2012 is very popular among users and developer of LEGO robot kits and systems. This introduction of askNAO BLOCKLY we believe creates a natural path for LEGO users who as they progress in knowledge, age and experience want to advance to more sophisticated humanoid robotic platforms such as the NAO robot," said Mike Radice, chairman of ChartaCloud's technology advisory board.
