First, you must pair a controller (see Remote settings). Once paired, turn the controller on and wait for it to connect (the indicator light will go solid blue). Now, start the remote controller to enter remote control mode.
Use the left and right sticks to move MiRo's head and body around.
There are two control schemes, known as first- and third-person. Use whichever scheme works for your application. Note that first-person control takes a little getting used to but may be able to generate smoother movements once you get the hang of it.
In this scheme, you control the velocity of MiRo's nose, and should imagine yourself 'in MiRo's head'. Left stick up/down controls forward/backward; right stick up/down/left/right controls up/down/left/right.
In this scheme, you control the motors more directly. Left stick up/down moves the body forward/backward, whilst left/right rotates the body. Right stick controls neck up/down and left/right.
- Fast blink.
- L1 (hold)
- L2 (hold)
- Fast wag.
Note that lights on MiRo's back give feedback on these operations. The left side (red, green, blue, white) indicates which option has been changed, the right side (red, green) indicates the new setting.
