Understanding Autonomous Life settings
Autonomous Life ¶
Autonomous Life is the key element making Pepper alive and responsive.
To activate or deactivate Autonomous Life , see: Switching Autonomous life on and off .
Default settings ¶
By default, when you receive your Pepper , only the Autonomous Life is installed and turned on:
|Alive and responsive : Autonomous Life : ON|
On startup Pepper gets up, then orientates his head towards human, and is able to react to basic stimuli, such as sounds, movements, or tactile contacts.
For further details, see: Interacting with Pepper .
Installed Activities ¶
Additionally, Applications can be installed, from the Store and/or from Choregraphe .
For further details, see: Retrieving applications .
Applications may content Solitary and/or Interactive Activities .
Depending on the launch conditions of these Activities , you see them either autonomously launched at some point, or explicitly launched by voice when you talk to him.
For further details, see: Launching an Activity .
The more applications you installed on Pepper , the richer his living behavior will be.
What if I do not want autonomous life ¶
You may disable Autonomous Life :
|Still and motionless : Autonomous Life : OFF|
In this state, you can use Pepper as an experimental tool, to test a new program or to study a very specific skill of your robot.
But if you want to use or to create interactive Applications , you should create and test them with the recommended settings.
