In the control panel, you can control the robot to perform various postures, behaviors, and gaits.
The left panel sets both the robot's gaits and directions and send combined command, such as "walk left" and "trot forward". The robot will only move if an initial gait and direction are selected. The "step" has no direction, and "backward" has left and right directions. The pause button "||" will pause the robot's motion and turn off the servos, so that you can rotate the joints to any angle. The "Turbo" button (
) turns on/off the gyro, a sensor to detect the robot's body orientation. Turning it on will make the robot keep adjusting to body angles, and will know when it's upside down. Turning it off will reduce calculation and make it walk faster and more stable.
The built-in postures and behaviors can be triggered by pressing the buttons. Don't press the button too frequently and repeatedly. Allow some time for the robot to finish its current tasks.
