SUNY Oneonta has been researching with the NAO robot since last fall. NAO is a humanoid robot from Aldebaran standing at 58cm tall intended for human interaction. It has been primarily used in areas of research and education. The robot has thrived in the area of communication therapy for children with autism. SUNY Oneonta's Computer Science program has been partnering with Broome-Tioga BOCES, Oak Tree to conduct research in this area.
