Interactive FluentNao

May 16, 2014

Here I will show you how to set up Fluent Nao code to interactively control Nao.

Setup Pynaoqi Python SDK

Download the Python SDK from Aldebaran's community site and extract it into a folder on your computer.

Afer that add the folder to your PYTHONPATH by editing you .bashrc or .profile file. For example on my linux system I added the following to my .bashrc

export PYTHONPATH=$PYTHONPATH:$HOME/development/opensource/pynaoqi-python2.7-

Setup Fluent Nao

Next up you'll need to clone fluent nao using git

git clone

And add the src/main/python folder to your .bashrc or .profile file. For example on my system I added the following to my .bashrc

export PYTHONPATH=$PYTHONPATH:$HOME/development/opensource/FluentNao/src/main/python

Bootstrap Python

To test things out you can edit the file in the root of the FluentNao code you checked out. Update the following line to Nao's ipaddress if needed and get Nao's ipaddress by pushing his chest button once.

naoIp = ""

Then run the bootstrap file in an interactive python shell to connect

python -i

Interactively Control Nao

Run a FluentNao commands to test it out.


If that worked you're ready to go.
