More About Pepper:


Pepper runs on an OS called NAOqi It is an embedded GNU/Linux distribution based on Gentoo, and has been tailored specifically to fit Pepper and NAO’s needs. SDK’s allow you to create modules to run on NAOqi with Matlab, Python, C++, .net and MS Robotics Studio. Learn more in the developer documentation
