Robotic Design with a Dash of Pepper

Over the past few months, we’ve been working in collaboration with Softbank Robotics, QUT Bluebox, and Pepper to bring our personal approach to the world’s first humanoid robot, Pepper.

Robotics and AI is the future of training, with an estimated 66,100 robots doing front of house work within Australia by 2020 (World Robotics Report, 2017 & Robotics Roadmap for Australia 2018.

That’s where we come in. Just like with our training, we design solutions that go above and beyond what is expected. We craft effective and remarkable experiences that are tailor-made to benefit specific audiences. We’re currently working with Pepper to design quality experiences for our clients, who are true innovators and leaders of their industries.

Recently we developed a framework we call “Curu-waii“, which is a combination of Croomo + Kawaii (Japanese for cute). Curu-waii is our terminology for the engaging experiences we’ve designed using Pepper — experiences that delight, engage, and stick with people. With Pepper’s help, we can take a new approach to engaging hearts and minds, just like we have with our award-winning training for over a decade.

We’ve created a base experience that demonstrates several of Pepper’s important features: personality, story, the ability to integrate with external software, and the ability to communicate to a Learning Management System (LMS). These features have already created endless organisational training opportunities, and this is only the beginning.

 

‘The client steps out of the elevator and notices Pepper. Pepper notices the client
walk out of the elevator. She waves at him and says: Good morning and welcome to Croomo. Pepper’s tablet displays an instruction that says: Please scan your meeting code or enter your name manually. Chris scans his meeting code. Pepper lets James know that Chris has arrived…’

Humanoid robots and AI will play a large role in the future of training within Australia, and with Croomo’s ‘know how’, we’re creating truly unique, engaging interactions for our clients that are anything but robotic.

Croomo approaches training with a personal touch. Whether we’re creating behavioural campaigns or compliance-based safety training, we utilise story, language, and amazing visuals to create award-winning training.
