NEC’s new PaPeRo is 40 cm tall, completely self-sufficient, and all processing is done inside the shell as there are no means of communications with external processing units. With the help of its three ears the PaPeRo is able to recognize over 650 phrases and speak more than 3000 phrases itself. It also has two CCD cameras, enabling it to recognize its owner, and in a combination with ultrasonic sensors this is also what enables the robot to walk around a room without bumping into any obstacles.
