Social robot study with Pepperfamily icon

Pepper is the world's first personal humanoid robot that can recognise emotions, created by SoftBank Robotics.

Join us for an interactive presentation from the Australian Centre of Excellence in Robotic Vision and learn how a social robot like Pepper moves around and interacts with people. You will have the opportunity to see a projection of the world through Pepper's eyes and find out the challenges for a robot finding its way around an unknown environment using computer vision and depth sensors.

QUT is Australia's first university to use Pepper specifically for a social robotics research platform, complementing the State Government's strategy to explore the potential for humanoid robots and through a Proof of Concept (POC) activity in partnership with ST Solutions Australia (a subsidiary of SoftBank Corp.).
