Controlling RoboMe™
To turn, the robot will spin on the spot until the button is released. Therefore, the LEFT arrow button will
make it move counter-clockwise and the RIGHT button will make it move clockwise, regardless of the
direction the robot faces.
Obstacle and Edge Detection
As RoboMe™ moves around, it will detect obstacles in range directly in front of it. Upon detection, it will
stop and make a sound. It will do the same when it detects an edge. The robot can see highly reflective
surfaces, such as white walls and floors or mirrors and might perceive them to be an edge from which it
can fall.
NOTE: The robot cannot detect obstacles or edges to the side or behind it.
Roam mode
Roam Mode
In Roam Mode, RoboMe™ explores the environment without your commands, commentating and detecting
obstacles and edges along the way. To enter Roam Mode, press the ROAM button on the remote controller.
After approximately ten minutes, RoboMe™ will exit Roam Mode. If you do not enter a command within
about five minutes, it will enter Standby Mode. To exit Roam Mode before this, give another command.
Standby Mode
RoboMe™ is equipped with a Standby Mode. If you do not interact with it for approximately 5 minutes,
the robot will make a comment and enter Standby Mode.
RoboMe™ comes with a few modes that do not require connection to a smart device and app.
During Standby Mode both object and edge detection will function but the robot’s eye and
mouth LEDs switch off. The mood indicator LED fades to white and pulses more slowly.
To wake RoboMe™ from Standby Mode, press any button on the Remote Controller or activate any of
its sensors.
Demo Mode
Sleep Mode
Modes
RoboMe™ has two demo routines. To activate a demo, point the remote controller at the robot and press
the DEMO button. To stop, press any button on the remote controller.
NOTE: RoboMe™ moves around during demo routines. Ensure the surrounding area is free from obstacles and edges.
Guard Mode
If RoboMe™ is left for approximately 35 minutes more (approximately 40 minutes altogether) it will enter
Sleep Mode after making a comment. The mood indicator LED will turn off along with the object and edge
sensors. To wake RoboMe™ from Sleep Mode, turn it OFF and then ON again using the power switch
located on the underside.
NOTE: If you are done playing with RoboMe™, turn it off using the power switch located on the underside.
In Guard Mode, RoboMe™ will scan the environment directly in front of it, up to about 3 feet (1 meter)
away. The robot will sound an alarm if it detects movement of a large person or object within that range.
NOTE: If you give RoboMe™ other commands while in Guard Mode, the robot will exit Guard Mode.

Press the GUARD button on the remote controller.
The robot will perform a scan of the immediate environment about 3 feet (1 meter) in front of it.
RoboMe™ will make different comments to show it is scanning the area. If RoboMe™ detects any movements, it will sound an alarm.
After about 30 minutes the robot will exit Guard Mode and wait for a command. If you do not enter a command within about five minutes, it will enter Standby Mode.
To exit Guard Mode, press the GUARD button on the remote controller or give another command.

RoboMe™ moods
Games
Moods
RoboMe™ has three games that you can play without a smart device connected.
Along with a strong character, RoboMe™ also has several different moods. If you interact with RoboMe™
a lot, it will be happier than if it is waiting for instructions. After about ten minutes of no play, RoboMe™
will be sad.
To activate Game Mode:
1.
Press the GAME button on the remote controller.
2.
RoboMe™ will say the name of a game. To select the game, press the YES button.
NOTE: If you press NO or do not respond within a few seconds, a beep sound will indicate that the
robot has exited Game Mode. To have the robot suggest another game,
press the GAME button again.
3. After you press YES, RoboMe™ will give verbal instructions on how
to play. Use the remote controller to interact with him. When playing,
follow his instructions.
4.
NOTE: If you do not respond quickly enough, the game will not start and
a beep sound will indicate that the robot has exited Game Mode. To
have the robot suggest another game, press the GAME button again.
To stop the game, either press NO or wait for a minute.
Follow The Leader
In Follow The Leader, RoboMe™ will give verbal instructions for you to perform using the drive control
buttons on the remote controller to move him about. Do as you are instructed and RoboMe™ will
be happy.
Shake My Hand
RoboMe™ will ask if you want to shake his hand. If you want to play, just shake his hand. You do not have
to press YES on the remote controller. If you do press YES, he will exit the game.
Magic 8 Ball
RoboMe™ can act as a Magic 8 Ball. Select the game and the robot will tell you when to ask your question.
To know what mood RoboMe™ is in, check the LED Mood Indicator
located in the center of the robot’s body. RoboMe™ has four main
moods and will make comments as it changes moods. Once you get to
know RoboMe™, you will be able to tell what mood it is moving into.

FAQs
Q. My RoboMe™ is not responding to commands from the remote controller…
A. Make sure you point the remote controller directly at RoboMe™’s IR sensor. One is located on the top of his head. Another is located in the middle of his body, at the front. If there is still no response, try changing the 3 x “AAA” size alkaline batteries in the remote controller.
Q. My RoboMe™ has trouble performing turns and is moving too slowly…
A. Make sure there are neither dirt nor fibers trapped around the wheels. If there are, remove carefully, with adult supervision if required. If RoboMe™ still moves slowly, try replacing the 4 x “C” size alkaline batteries in RoboMe™.
Q. My RoboMe™ cannot avoid obstacles...
A. Try resetting RoboMe™ by turning it Off for a few seconds and then On again using the power switch located on the underside. Note that RoboMe™’s IR sensors are based on reflection. The robot can see highly reflective surfaces, such as white walls or mirrors more easily and from greater distances than matte or black surfaces. A well-lit environment will enable RoboMe™ to see more clearly.
