The Follow Me application allows you to use Pepper’s arms to steer and move it wherever I want.


To control your Pepper robot, just use its arm as a joystick: push the arm to the right or left, Pepper will go in this direction, pull the arm slightly back, Pepper moves back, lift its arm slightly, it will accelerate!


The application uses touch sensors on the back of the hand to unsnap the arm motors, and uses engine angles to move the robot in the right direction.


When you have arrived at the destination with the robot, you can press one of Pepper’s bumpers or his head to stop the application.
