  • Default

    A default is the normal setting of a feature.  For example, when you first switch Roamer on it runs at 25 cm/sec.  That is Roamer’s default speed.  Roamer uses default settings at the start of a GO Program and when you switch the robot on.  Roamer’s voice is another default: how the robot behaves when it completes a sense-procedure is another.  You can change some of the defaults – see Advanced Roamer.
