The story

Founded in Nantes in 2014 by Franck Calzada, Intuitive Robots design applications solutions for social robots, such as NAO and Pepper, from Softbank Robotics and more recently for Cruzr & Alpha-Mini from Ubtech and Buddy from Blue Frogs Robotics.
In 2015, in partnership with Softbank Robotics, we took part in the first deployment of Pepper in Europe, by creating applications for Carrefour stores in France & Spain (30 robots), then we worked on one of the most important deployment for the Carnival Group (20 robots) on cruise ships. More recently we took part in the Renault car dealerships deployment (120 robots) as well as for retailers in US.

In 2017, more than 200 Pepper robots used our applications worldwide. You can take a look at our latest projects here.

In 2019, we built strong partnerships with UBtech and Blue Frogs Robotics, providing custom applications as well as the SPARK solution integration.

The vision

« Give the robots a SPARK of life »

Thanks to our practical field experience and strong expertise, we make the most of social robots, their capabilities and features to design smart and useful applications, providing amazing human-machine interactions.

We want the robots be able to interact naturally and seamlessly with people, this is why we created SPARK, which integrates AI chatbots/voicebots, providing rich and smart interactions on any social robots. In addition, we believe that the robots should easily communicate with IoT world as well as integrate third-party apps and services, for an even smarter usage.
