Meet Nao, a robot providing a revolutionary treatment for autistic children. Manufactured by Aldebaran Robotics in France, the small robot is capable of autonomic movement, face and voice recognition and is equipped with extensive programming to support and facilitate social interaction.
A pervasive developmental disorder, autism refers to a group of ailments that cause delays in the development of basic skills. Most children afflicted with autism have difficulty relating to other people and understanding social cues, such as facial expressions and body language.
Common symptoms of the disorder include loss of skill sets such as talking, slowed language development, odd movements such as hand flapping and toe walking, repetitive behavior, anxiety, a high pain threshold, difficulty relating to others and a lack of eye contact and response to vocal commands.
The Nao robot provides predictable and repetitive behaviors, which in turn improves a child’s social interaction skills with people.
Cedric Vaudel, manager of Aldebaran Robotics, says the Nao robot can understand its environment, pick itself up, negotiate its way around objects and is capable of advanced functionality. “Everything is possible, it’s just a matter of imagination.”
