Pepper is an autonomous talking humanoid robot who perceives emotions, and adapts his behavior to the mood of the humans around him. Pepper can be used to provide emotional support and companionship to the elderly, individuals with mental or cognitive disabilities, or to anyone that would benefit from a companion. Pepper can identify joy, sadness, anger or surprise and respond appropriately, making his interactions with users natural and intuitive. Pepper can instantly recognize the emotional context of the conversation and adjust accordingly, resulting in human communication with real emotional connection. Pepper quickly builds empathy and trust, and can offer services and functions that no other robotic platform can offer.

Voice and Hearing: Using the 4 directional microphones that are embedded in his head, Pepper can detect where sounds are coming from and turn to face people as they speak. These microphones also allow Pepper to analyze your lexical field and your tone of voice helping him understand your emotional context. 

Vision: Pepper has a 3d camera and 2 HD cameras embedded in his facial area. Using this hardware, Pepper processes images with shape recognition software to identify objects, individual faces and their emotional states of the faces around him. 

Movement: The first thing people notice about Pepper is the astonishing flexibility and fluidiity of his movement. He gesticulates with the speed and grace of a human, while his 3 multi-directional wheels enable him to move around freely through 360°, at a maximum speed of 3 km/h. Pepper is actually equipped with 20 engines in his head, arms and back to control his movements with great precision. Lastly Pepper has a high capacity lithium-ion battery, giving him 12 hours of autonomous interaction and movement.
