Digital Dream Labs is proud to introduce Escape Pod for Vector. Designed for hobbyists and anyone wanting to develop their own infrastructure, Escape Pod allows your favorite robot companion to function independent of our cloud servers while also enabling the customization of voice commands and improving response times.
Local Server Offers Increased Security & Conversational Experience
Escape Pod for Vector is much more than simply an "insurance policy" in the event of service interruptions with external servers. It allows Vector owners to host their robot on a local server (Raspberry Pi not included), providing unparalleled security.
In addition to the increased privacy, the use of a local server will also improve Vector's response times; making for a more conversational experience.
Additional Capabilities & Features
Escape Pod's user interface also allows Vector owners to access advanced customization options and other enhancements:
Open Source Extension Engine - connect with third-party services to collect external information (weather, data from other smart devices, and more).
Firmware Management - easily upload firmware images to the Escape Pod for storage and flash them directly to a connected robot during the onboarding process.
Behavior Logging - see what the Escape Pod heard on each voice command via the web interface; enabling advanced debugging of behaviors.
Onboarding Variables - set all of the variables in the robot that were previously only available via the app (locale, location, back button behavior, etc.).
