About Intuitive Robots

At Intuitive Robots, we create custom applications dedicated to humanoid robots. We propose new uses for your digital lives.

The new advanced humanoid robots now have the ability to interact naturally and intuitively with people. Thus, they can be used as new communication interfaces:

  • For professional uses : Attracting, welcoming, guiding, informing, promoting products or services, getting feedbacks... Regardless of whether retail store, hospital, museum or any kind of company, the needs are shared across many businesses. Humanoid robots such as Pepper can answer these needs in a very efficient and innovative way in order to enhance people experience.
  • At home: Education, entertainment, interaction with Internet of Things, daily assistance from children to elderly people, there're plenty of use cases. We propose adapted applications. The domain of application is limitless. Just ask us!

Our expertise and creativity allow us to address this challenge :

Give the robots a spark of life, and the chance to integrate our lives.

About Intuitive Robots

Intuitive Robots is a premier developer and publisher of humanoid robots applications solutions.



We give a spark of life to humanoid robots and the chance to integrate our life.

We particularly make Pepper robots useful in the service and retail industries by proposing new software solutions within the digital strategies, and by providing strategy consulting in the use of humanoid robotics. Since 2014, our main activity is only dedicated to humanoid robot applications and solutions.

Our experience combined with our technical knowledge of Pepper and NAO robots, made us able to design relevant, robust and efficient interactive applications.

In partnership with Softbank Robotics (formerly Aldebaran), we took part in Pepper’s first deployment in Europe by creating different applications for Carrefour stores in France & Spain, for the Carnival Group (AIDA, Costa Cruise) on several cruise ships and more recently for retailers in the United States.

Franck Calzada
Founder & CEO

“ I started to deal with robotics since i was a student. At this time, humanoid robots were only a dream on a piece of paper. This dream became available and affordable only few years ago, thanks to Aldebaran which created NAO and the new Pepper. In 2012, as I integrated the NAO Developer Program, I started to create many applications especially for NAO. Two years later, I decided to start the Intuitive Robots adventure. ”


Thomas Pennarun
research engineer / developer

“ Hi, I’m Thomas ! As a robot-addicted, that was natural (and pretty cool) for me to join the Intuitive Robots team. I have a master degree in Robotic Engineering and I am here to use my skills to find new and funny ways to interact with humanoid robots. I truly believe in the incoming robotic revolution : give access to useful/awesome humanoid robots to everyone. I am glad to be a part of it ! See you soon ! ”

“ I believe that humanoid robots will change the world (and it already started !). I am convinced that Intuitive Robots will play a big role in the development of the worldwide humanoid robotic field, thanks to our expertise, our creativity and our vision. ”

Franck Calzada, Founder


Julien Joliff
Marketing and Communication Manager

“ Hi ! I’m a digital native passionate about new technologies and innovation, this is why I decided to join Intuitive Robots. I have a Master degree in Management and Marketing and I’d like to apply my skills in communication to make Intuitive Robots famous ! Working with humans and robots is very fulfilling and the field of possibilities is unlimited. My job is to create use cases to make Pepper useful within the digital strategy of any kind of business. ”


Paulo Cornec
Robotic Engineer

“As a big fan of new technlogies, I’m finishing my engineering studies in electronics and digital technologies. After several robots design projects during my academic background, I can say that today I’m really passionate about the robotics field. Much more than the Industrial Robotics, I’m particularly interested in humanoid robotics for B to B and B to C. After that, I discovered that Intuitive Robots was based winthin 100m of my school,  which was a great opportunity for me to develop my skills work with the famous Nao and Pepper robots. The adventure begins now !”


Melyss Blouin
Robotic Engineer

“I’m currently studying automatic system, control and industrial computing, I developed a strong interest in robotics through various projects. So I naturally took the opportunity to do my intership at Intuitive Robots, which is the best way to take part in the promising development of humanoid robotic.”


Napoléon, TARS and CASE

Test and validation engineers

“ Hello human brothers ! We’re one of the most important members of the team (if not the most importants… Ahah !!). Designed by Aldebaran in Paris, we are the perfect platform to test the new Intuitive Robots algorithms that give life to robots. We validate all the developments and applications created by Intuitive Robots. ”


Jordan Gobley
Software Engineer

“Huge fan of technology since my earliest childhood, and more specifically unusual human-machine interfaces, I have always been crazy about humanoid robotic. Joining the great Intuitive Robots adventure in 2016 after my degree in software engineering was therefore an incredible opportunity to realize a kid’s dream: helping to give a spark of life to robots.


Flora Briand
UX Engineer

“I am a Software Engineer with a User eXperience expertise. Therefore I have a dual skill: Developer (with an engineer degree in embedded systems) and Ergonomist (with an MSc Interactive Intelligent Systems). Passionate about any kind of human-machine interface, particularly innovative ones, and after 6 years working at Aldebaran on Nao and Pepper, I joined Intuitive Robots to make the interaction with these humanoid robots a natural, intuitive… and fun experience! :)”

Pepper4Services : "A ready-to-use solution for your business"


Pepper4Services Solution


“A ready-to-use solution for your Business”



Since 2014, our experience combined with our knowledge of Pepper robot, as much about his ability as technical or physical constraints, made us able to design robust and effective solutions.

We have designed “Pepper4Services“, a suite of solutions which includes applications and web tools for Pepper, which is adaptable to any kind of business (Retail, services…).
Through a web interface, this solution allows to easily, rapidly and intuitively create and manage the robots’ contents and behaviors.



Who is this solution for ?

Developed to provide an effective and user-friendly solution for any type of business, “Pepper4Services” covers a large number of use cases which are adaptable whatever the activity. 

In order to simplify and accelerate the Pepper’s integration within businesses, this solution has been designed to avoid technical tasks such as programming, so our clients can focus only on the content.
Our solution can be easily managed by marketing or communication team, store manager…


What are the use-cases covered by Pepper4Services ?

Created to be used in a business environment, Pepper is a new interface that enhances the customer experience and provides a high-added value by providing new services and communication means.

your_app_ideaWe also develop custom and specific applications according to your needs or activity.


How to give a spark of life to Pepper according to your activity?

These applications are configurable at any time through our CMS, accessible from the Web. So everyone can give life to Pepper, according to his own activity.

This web portal enables you to define the behavior of the robot for each of our applications and thus, define what must Pepper :

  • Understand from a human
  • Say through the dialogue
  • Display with the tablet
  • Be animated with his gesture

What kind of content I can manage with P4S?


Some screenshots of the solution :



P4S_job P4S_pro

How to understand interactions with Pepper and measure the quality of your content?

We provide real-time analytics accessible from our Web portal. These statistics help to understand and analyse interactions with Pepper, adapt the content (speech, tablet display…) and thus, improve the Pepper’s quality of service. In addition, other developers can also define their analytics  with their own applications integrated in P4S.


We have three categories of data (crossed between them), for a better understanding and analysis :

  • Demographics (Gender, age, mood…)
  • Spatio-temporal (Place, moment…)
  • About your activity (use-case) (The most popular applications or products, the services required, the frequently asked questions, the opinions collected…)
