Keys features

Life on start-up

This version of NAOqi comes with a disruptive new feature: the robot is now able to launch autonomously any of its installed applications.

This ability, called Life and orchestrated by the module ALAutonomousLife, is active by default and starts to operate after the boot of the robot.

If needed, Life can be temporarily deactivated. For further details, see: Switching Autonomous life on and off.

When the Life is active, what you see depends on the applications installed on your robot. For further details, see: Understanding Autonomous Life settings.

New Web Page

The Aldebaran robot Web page has been fully redesigned.

It is simpler to use and when the robot is configured for the first time, a wizard mode welcomes beginners. Yet, advanced users may still access to the former and deprecated Web page.
