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 .
