Who is Pepper?

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!

Interactive, progressive and autonomous

Pleasant and likeable, Pepper is much more than a robot, he is a genuine humanoid companion created to communicate with you in the most natural and intuitive way, through his body movements and his voice.

Pepper loves to interact with you, Pepper wants to learn more about your tastes, your habits and quite simply who you are.

Pepper can recognise your face, speak, hear you and move around autonomously.

You can also personalise your robot by downloading the software applications that take your fancy, based on your mood or the occasion. Dance, play, learn or even chat in another language, Pepper adapts himself to you!

Your robot evolves with you. Pepper gradually memorises your personality traits, your preferences, and adapts himself to your tastes and habits.
 

The emotion at the heart of the robot

Pepper has been designed to identify your emotions and to select the behaviour best suited to the situation.

Based on your voice, the expression on your face, your body movements and the words you use, Pepper will interpret your emotion and offer appropriate content.

He will also respond personally to the mood of the moment, expressing himself through the colour of his eyes, his tablet or his tone of voice.

Their experiences with Pepper

For the first time, a large banking group has chosen Pepper to inform its customers in different languages at its branches in Japan.

Asami and Kent, in their thirties and living in Tokyo, took part in a Pepper programming session at the Akihabara atelier. They can't wait to have their own Pepper at home and continue dreaming up new applications.

The Asahi family adopted Pepper a week ago and they are delighted with him. Each family member gives him new functionalities and Pepper surprises them a little more each day.

Nestlé is planning on equipping more than 1,000 Nescafé sales outlets in Japan to inform their customers about their different products in a fun way thanks to Pepper.
