At March 17th and 18th 2012, the Linux Days 2012 (Linux-Tage) will take place in Chemnitz, Saxonia. Within the workshop section the QualiTune team will present the NaoService as an approach to expose the Nao’s API as a Web service. This allows for easy integration within to distributed application scenarios or other software applications communicating with or controlling Naos.
The presentation will be held in room V2 (Hörsaal- und Seminar-Gebäude der Technischen Universität Chemnitz, Reichenhainer Straße 90) on Saturday, 17th March at 5:00 PM. More information regarding the presentation and a German abstract can be found at http://chemnitzer.linux-tage.de/2012/vortraege/1016.
On Thursday, January 19th, the Java User Group (JUG) Saxony will have an event at the Technische Universität Dresden, Faculty of Informatics. Whereas the main topic is about Android and the Open ADK, first, a short presentation will be held by Claas Wilke from the QualiTune team. He will present our Nao robots and will demonstrate, how their API can be exposed as web services and use to remotely controll Naos via applications, e.g., for Android devices.
The presentation starts at 7 PM, the exact location is INF/E023. More information regarding the event and the JUG Saxony can be found at http://www.jugsaxony.org/.

At the 1st of July we gave talks to the public about cyber-physical systems and presented “Chuck” – our Nao robot, which we controlled by an Android smartphone using our tools: NaoDroid and NaoService.
We are thankful for having had such a huge, excited audience ranging from young children to seniors. Again, we have been on regional television (MDR Sachsenspiegel). You can watch the video on Youtube: Dresden laedt zur Wissenschaftsnacht.
