Information about the faces Misty detects displays in your browser console.
To see information about the faces Misty detects, subscribe to FaceRecognition events under Advanced Options in the Sensor Data section of this page.
Enter a name in the text field and click the "Start Face Training" button. Position your face in front of the camera, about a foot or two away, for about 30 seconds. The camera will take numerous pictures of your face and Misty will attempt to create a face matrix so she can recognize you in the future.
Record video with Misty’s 4k camera.
Record audio with Misty’s microphone array.
These controls allow you to interact with Misty's simultaneous localization and mapping (SLAM) capabilities. SLAM is Misty's ability to both create a map of the world and know where she is in that map at the same time. Misty's SLAM hardware and capabilities are early alpha features and are under active development. Experiment with mapping and tracking, but recognize that these features are unreliable at this time.
1. Select "Start Mapping". After a few seconds, the Misty icon below should turn green, indicating that Misty has obtained pose.
2. Use the Manual Driving controls to drive Misty around her environment. Drive Misty slowly to ensure she maintains pose.
3. When you are done with mapping, select "Stop Mapping".
4. Select "Get Map" to retrieve the map from the robot.
Use these controls to initiate tracking. Misty cannot drive to a specific destination or follow a path if she does not have a map or if she has not obtained pose.
These controls allow Misty to drive to specific coordinates or to follow a path on her current map.
