Autonomous Life is the key element making Pepper alive and responsive.
To activate or deactivate Autonomous Life, go to the link: Switching Autonomous life on and off.
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.
- If you stay away, Pepper does not talk, but looks for people willing to talk and interact.
- If you come closer, Pepper listens and tries to make a relevant answer.
For further details, go to the link: Interacting with Pepper .
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.
