The contest
The students will be able to programm virtually Nao by way of the software Webots in order to test it on the humanoid robot during the final event. Nao Challenge Italy contemplates a simulation inside a household place. The robot is an integrant part of the house and it helps its residents to live in a better way.
The scenery where the contestants will make Nao live is the sitting room of an house, on a Saturday without parents: the adults are outside, while the children are playing in the lounge. The students will have to take a stab at a challenge made of four test:
A child is playing with Nao in the sitting room...
While Nao is in the sitting room, a child arrives to watch the television. Nao recognize the child between the five members of the family and, eventually, it proposes him different movies to choose. After the child will have chosen, Nao will reproduce the movie on the remote computer.
The team have to design and develop a system thanks to which Nao can check the lighting of the room.
