Home page

This is the home page where you will find key settings and information. The page includes the following sections.

After changing settings, reboot the robot, either by turning it off and on again, or by clicking System Control and selecting Restart on-board computer.

Bluetooth connection

At the top of the page is the Bluetooth connection status. Click on the connection end symbol to disconnect from the robot and return to the Scan page (or click your device's Back button).

System configuration

Network credentials

Click the blue settings icon to provide or update the credentials for your local wifi network. When you reboot, the robot will use these to connect to the wifi.

If you choose to connect your robot to a network, it immediately presents a security risk.
See the Information Security section of the Owner's Guide for guidance on specific risks, and advice on steps you might take to mitigate these.
In all cases, the first step you should take to mitigate these risks is to change the password—do this immediately after connecting your robot to the network.

Network settings

These settings determine how your robot discovers its own network address. See the page Network settings dialog for details.

ROS settings

This is the configuration of your ROS network. If you need help with these settings, see the page ROS settings dialog.

Supplementary settings

These settings affect supplementary systems. Check Speak network address to hear the assigned network address read back to you at boot time. For more information on how to set System update schedule, see the Software manager.

MiRocode settings

These settings are for using your MiRo with the MiRocode environment. You should set the web passphrase (any words separated by spaces) and enter the same web passphrase into the box in MiRocode.

Remote settings

This section provides for pairing a (PS4 Dualshock) controller to your robot. Once paired, the controller can be used as a remote control. See the page Remote settings dialog for details.

System information

Identification and software

If you have Set Serial Number, it will be displayed here. This is for your own identification purposes only, the robot ignores this setting.

You can also see the currently installed software release—enter the Software manager to see more detail on this.

Network information

This section shows the MAC address of the wifi interface on the robot, as well as the IP address that is currently assigned to that interface. This will change if the robot reconnects to or disconnects from the network.

ROS information

This section indicates the status of the boot process (usually 'completed'), as well as the network address at which the ROS master (if running) and the system bridge were started on. These values should match the value at 'IP address' in the section above, if the ROS master is configured to run on-board.

Physical status

Here you can read back the status of the battery. Anything above 4.9V is fresh, anything below 4.7V and it's time to recharge. Most of the time you'll see a value in the 4.7-4.9V range. If the voltage reaches 4.6V, you'll start to hear the low battery alarm.

System managers

Click on one of the blue ellipsis symbols to enter that system manager. In each case, a dedicated page will open in MiRoapp.
