- Created robots with humanlike movements
- Resolved structural, thermal, and plastic injection molding issues
- Automated wiring layouts and routing
- Innovated robotic platform for autism therapy
Aldebaran Robotics is developing and commercializing humanoid robots. The French robot manufacturer’s introduction of the NAO® robot—the most advanced humanoid robot to date—represents a quantum leap forward in robot technology. In addition to the vision of Aldebaran’s founder and the talents of the company’s staff, developing the NAO robot required access to an integrated 3D development environment.
Aldebaran chose SolidWorks solutions to develop the NAO robot because it needed an intuitive, integrated development platform to transform its vision for humanoid robots into actual products. The company utilizes SolidWorks® Premium design, SolidWorks Simulation Premium analysis, SolidWorks Plastics injection molding analysis, and SolidWorks Enterprise PDM product data management software. By selecting SolidWorks solutions, Aldebaran was able to create robots with humanlike movements; resolve structural, thermal, and injection molding issues; automate wiring layouts; and innovate a robotic platform for autism therapy.
