We believe in a future where sensitive and communicating robots will assist humans in their work, their home, their leisure activities, and their family life. Bruno Maisonnier, Founder and CEO of Aldebaran, points out that "Currently, our robots are exclusively found on the professional market. Our objective is for them to become accessible to the general public and our intention is to create a place where humans and robots can meet. The Atelier, with its 'developers' space is also about generating new applications development ideas for our robots as well as paving the way to new business models."
