Send the current Choregraphe’s vision recognition database to the connected NAO.

Warning

The vision recognition database currently on NAO will be replaced by Choregraphe’s current one.

Warning

The vision recognition database is not saved in the project file . So if your behavior needs your vision recognition database to work and you want to execute your behavior on another robot, you will then have to send your vision recognition database to that other robot first.

Note

The vision recognition database is not reinitialized at Choregraphe closure or startup.
