Turning NAO on

To turn NAO on:

Step Action
Make sure NAO is on a flat surface, providing enough space to move around.

Press the Chest Button once.


  • Start-up

    The LEDs, blinking and fading, inform you about the progress of the startup. For further details, see: Understanding the boot process.

    The boot process is completed when NAO says “OGNAK GNOUK”.

  • Life

    Shortly after, NAO starts seeking your attention.

    If applications are installed, they may be launched automatically or interactively.

    Note: NAO may behave very differently according to the settings chosen by his owner. For further details, see: Understanding Autonomous Life settings.
