Bringing the Human Element to Robotics
Bruno Maisonnier, founder and CEO of Aldebaran Robotics, wanted to develop and empower people with a robot that could interact. Three years after starting to sell NAO models, over 2000 Robots have been sold worldwide, Aldebaran Robotics has now released the latest generation of its programmable humanoid robots, which is intended for research, teaching and, more generally, for exploring the new area of service.
In doing so, Aldebaran Robotics, utilizes the full potential of SolidWorks 3D design, analysis, and motion simulation software to optimize mechanical design of the robot to determine if it can withstand stresses applied to the robot. Once validation of the design is complete with SolidWorks they move on to production. Using SolidWorks they are able to project the Robot and components in to the future and improve design and optimize performance before parts are manufactured, before they exist.
