Pepper is the first humanoid robot capable of recognizing the principal human emotions and adapting his behavior to the mood of his interlocutor.

Pepper loves to interact with you, Pepper wants to learn more about your tastes, your habits and quite simply who you are. Pepper can recognize your face, speak, hear you and move around autonomously. Your robot evolves with you. Pepper gradually memorizes your personality traits, your preferences, and adapts himself to your tastes and habits.
The emotion at the heart of the robot
