After you click on the Gear icon in the bottom toolbar, you will see a settings menu show up on the right-hand side. This article will be going over all of the settings found in this menu and what they control on your Ohmni. To start please take a look at the three images below to see all of the settings options.
- Rotation Speed
Adjusting the slider for this setting will adjust the speed that Ohmni turns left and right. These adjustments allow users to dial in their preferred driving settings. For example, if you like driving at a bot speed of 150, but turning becomes difficult. You can adjust the rotation speed down and your Ohmni will drive forward at 150 but turn at a slower speed based on the slider.
The best way to dial this feature would be to play with a few different settings of the slider and see which makes driving the easiest for you.
- Bot Microphone
Adjusting the slider under the Bot microphone heading will change the volume of the Ohmni's microphone. For example, if the audio you hear from the environment the Ohmni is in is too loud, you can turn down the slider to turn the volume that you are hearing down.
Clicking the checkbox will mute the microphone of the Ohmni completely.
- Zoom Meeting
If you have Ohmni Cloud Solutions: Business Tier and above, this setting will allow the robot to join a Zoom meeting of your choice by using an invite link. More on this feature can be found here: Productivity Integrations: Ohmni with Zoom User Guide
- Bot Light
By clicking on the color square users can adjust the color of the LED lights under the Ohmni robot.
Some users have used the light under the robot to translate different things to the audience like raising a hand in class, presenting a mood, and so forth.
- Calibrate Autodocking
Your Ohmni is pre-calibrated for autodock so there is no need to recalibrate. If you are having autodock problems please see this article on how to resolve the issues.
- Touchscreen Controls
If you are using a computer that is also a tablet and having difficulty finding the touchscreen controls, this button can force the controls to turn on. Since many devices use different logic to determine when they are in tablet mode it can be difficult to recognize when the device has switched in to tablet mode.
This setting will allow you to adjust the contrast of the SuperCam. This is especially helpful if the room is white, but the items in the room are dark or black. This is also helpful if things appear too dark, despite the exposure being turned up. Lowering the contrast will soften these darker colors, while turning it up will deepen darker colors. Experiment with a combination of this setting + Sharpness to fine tune the picture quality.
This will allow you to raise or lower the sharpness in the SuperCam video feed. Normally this is not needed, however it can help picture quality if the contrast is lowered. We have found that low contrast + high sharpness can improve the quality in high contrasting rooms, such as a white room with dark clothes.
- Camera Exposure
These sliders allow users to adjust the exposure of the Main and Navigation cameras. Ohmni's cameras will auto expose to the light in the environment, but when looking at computer screens or bright rooms its possible for the camera to expose for the wrong area. In those cases, you can adjust the sliders for each camera separately to bring the detail you need to view.
-You can also use the - and + keys as a shortcut to adjust camera exposure.
- Show Debug Data
This feature is mainly for OhmniLabs' support. Once activated it will present some Ohmni data in the upper right-hand corner. These include:
- Ohmni's wheel odometry
- Ohmni's Battery and Charging readings
- Customize Center Indicator
The center indicator is a circular dot that can be added to the center of the main camera view helping to show the center of the Ohmni's camera focus. This can be helpful when you zoom into details often or are trying to communicate locations of items with people on the side of the Ohmni.
Each slider will control a different aspect of the center indicator.
- The diameter slider will adjust the size of the indicator
- The thickness slider will adjust the thickness of the ring
- The opacity slider will adjust the transparency of the ring
- The color box will adjust the color of the indicator.
If you adjust a slider and do not see a change you might need to select a different color or change the opacity to make sure the indicator is visible.
- Trouble using Ohmni?
This button will allow you to send a ticket our way at firstname.lastname@example.org, should any issues arise during your call. A pop up window will show, asking you to choose the issue type and provide additional feedback about the issue. Then, whenever you're ready, you can click "Submit a Support Ticket".
After you're done configuring your desired settings, you can hit the save button to save these settings to the robot.
