GENOA, May 31st, 2022


On May 31st, 2022, the NATIONAL FINAL of the NAO CHALLENGE 2022, the competition dedicated to schools and humanoid robotics with the aim of disseminating the social potential of service robotics, will take place in Genoa, on 3 June 2022, at the Fondazione Palazzo Ducale.

The NAO CHALLENGE, organised by Scuola di Robotica, in collaboration with SoftBank Robotics and CampuStore, and dedicated to high schools, tested students’ programming and development skills through the acquisition of technical competences and problem solving abilities.

The NAO Challenge was part of the Italian Ministry of Education Valorisation of Excellence Action.

The challenge posed to the teams was to design solutions for using the NAO humanoid robot for the promotion and enhancement of cultural heritage.

Through the programming and development of a mechatronic system, the teams created scenarios to optimise the robot’s capabilities. The realisation of the projects was coordinated and supported by the teachers of the participating schools.

As part of the competition, some teams also realised a transversal skills and orientation course that enabled the participating teams to further develop the project prepared for the challenge.

The finalist teams, which have already passed the pre-selections, will come from all over Italy. Juries of experts will select the winning team.

Unfortunately, due to participation restrictions, the NAO CHALLENGE 2022 is not open to the public.
