Meet the PocketBot: an Android app that connects to ROS, allowing you to add social capabilities to your robots with your Android smartphone or tablet. The app recognizes faces and interacts with users through speech. PocketBot is compatible with navigation algorithms, path planning, and robot visualization tools. It can be used to turn your robot into a telepresence machine.
Thanks to this app, you can add voice commands to your robot and “take advantage of your Android device’s gyroscope and GPS to give even more abilities to your robot.”
