Pepper the Robot
By: Braxton Babb

4. How is the robot taught to perform its task?
The core concept of Pepper is an essential notion for companionship: interaction.
Pepper listens to your voice and analyzes your body language. So it’s only natural that to communicate with you, Pepper uses the same! Your companion will modify his language or his gestures to adapt to the given situation. And the better you know Pepper, the more he’ll be able to help you.
You will also be able to interact with Pepper in other ways: your companion has a screen on his chest where he shows his emotions and what's happening in his inner world.
Describe the impact that this robot has had or could have on its intended audience.
The impact Pepper has on the intended audience us a emotional companion to talk to .
What task does the robot perform? What human function or task does this robot simulate?
Pepper is the latest creation from Aldebaran.
Pepper is the first humanoid robot designed to live with humans. At the risk of disappointing you, he doesn't clean, doesn't cook and doesn't have super powers... Pepper is a social robot able to converse with you, recognize and react to your emotions, move and live autonomously.
Where is the robot used? What is its work envelope (how many degrees of freedom or flexible joints does it have)?
Pepper the robot was made to be used at home but people are now using him in research labs, schools, and hospitals .
What sensors does the robot have and how does the robot use these sensors?
As I said earlier , Pepper has a screen on his chest where he shows his emotions and what's happening in his inner world .
He also includes a 3D camera to perceive his surroundings and his ultrasound system used to avoid obstacles and move safely in given space.
Name some advantages and disadvantages of using a robot to complete this task.
