Application:

In the line of Robotics, Everis works with Pepper in order to create and develop the perfect social robot: a robot which empathizes with the user understanding it’s emotions, creates engagement and can therefore be a better task facilitator and create a positive impact in all kinds of activities. At the same time, the robot is also able to act as a data logger, registering all the interactions and creating models which provide valuable information.

With this goal in mind, they have moved in multiple directions to introduce Pepper in different scenarios as one more participant:

  • As an animator engaging attendants in events
  • As a moderator in conferences
  • As a receptionist in businesses facilitating services to customers and providing guidance
  • As an interviewer
  • As a tutor guiding activities and cheering children up

Pepper has facial recognition capabilities so her can identify faces and offer a customized experience depending on the user’s stored profile found in the cloud; in the case of a newcomer Pepper can also enroll that user to recognize it in the future and also start building the user’s profile by acting as a data logger.
