FINALLY A REAL ROBOT WITH ITS OWN PLATFORM...
As developers of emotional robots, our daily life is to imagine and give life to a companion with incredible potential, ready to illuminate our homes: BUDDY! Beyond being cute, BUDDY is loaded with electronics, sensors, technological bricks (voice and facial recognition, navigation ...), artificial intelligence. His attributes make him a robot with its own platform that any developer dreams of having to imagine and create new applications. BUDDY is waiting for you!
WANNA BE THE FIRST TO HAVE ACCESS TO BUDDY PRO SDK? ENTER YOUR EMAIL AND YOU'LL GET NOTIFIED WHEN IT’S OUT!
BUDDY HAS A BIG DREAM: TO DEMOCRATIZE THE FIELD OF ROBOTICS.
This is why BUDDY is based on an open based platform.
BUDDY was built with popular development tools (like TensorFlow and Android Studio) to allow as many developers as possible to collaborate with us. We are also developing a complete API to enable the developer community to start working with BUDDY.
In addition to software, developers will be able to build custom hardware-based solutions that BUDDY can interact with.
ANDROID DEVELOPMENT KIT FOR BUDDY
Blue Frog Robotics now offers its Buddy PRO robot with its software development kit (SDK) including a set of APIs to control the robot.
To make its robots more accessible, Blue Frog Robotics decided to port its advanced development platform to Android (formerly under Unity3D) for its emotional robot Buddy.
Thanks to this kit, developers, students, professionals and robotics enthusiasts will be able to have access to the various functions of the robot (vocal (TTS / STT) and visual interactions, movements of the robot, emotional behaviors, human and face detection, tracking, QR Codes...) and program it to design new abilities for Buddy from scratch.
It is also possible to have access to raw data from Buddy's sensors in order to optimize certain commands or develop specific AI and computer vision algorithms.
In addition, the Android environment natively allows easier access to any API in the cloud to provide more possibilities.
An accessible and powerful IDE
Buddy’s IDE is based on Android studio, a popular Integrated Development Environment.
Android has become an essential platform for the development of mobile devices. Android app developers, a massive community around the world, will be able to develop applications for Buddy, seeing the range of possibilities greatly increased.
Buddy robots are fully programmable through the SDK and java coding tools to allow developers to focus on building apps, without having to worry about step-by-step control of the robot.
Easy to access and highly malleable, it will be suitable for young learner discovering programming as well as experts developers
AN EXTENSIBLE AND COMPLETE TURNKEY SOLUTION
We made the strategic choice to open the architecture of our robot and provide an Android SDK for our emotional robot Buddy to easily write interactive applications with Android Studio. This SDK will enable anyone to develop tailor-made applications that leverage Buddy's unique capabilities and enable it to provide useful services for a wide range of industries. It will be updated regularly to add new features that will benefit the whole community.
