This Final Year Project is based on the NAO, an advanced humanoid robot which is being employed by many robotics labs for research. The aim of the project is to analyse, explore and develop applications for the control and simulation of the robot. The first part of the project involved the analysis and testing of built-in tracking capabilities of the robot. Part of the project plan is to attempt to develop new code to improve on the existing capabilities but it was ultimately determined that improved hardware was necessary. The second part of the project saw the use of additional hardware – the Microsoft Kinect – to explore human-robot interfaces and develop a program which will allow the teleoperation of the NAO robot using gesture control. The program worked successfully. Although technical limitations were still present and there was still potential for additional functionalities to be added to the program in future work, it was concluded that the teleoperation of robots through gesture control was a concept that could be feasibly implemented.
