MiP will explore its environment and roam freely. MiP can acknowledge obstacles that it can see with it's IR Sensors. Roam Mode is indicated by MiP's chest lighting up yellow.
MiP will exit Roam Mode after three minutes or if it falls. Should MiP get stuck on a small obstacle below its IR Sensor and is not repositioned by you, MiP will exit the mode.
MiP cannot detect obstacles below the range of its IR Sensor (located above the eyes), to the side, or behind him.
- As MiP moves around, it will detect objects in range, directly in front of it. Upon detection, MiP will make a sound, turn and drive in another direction.
- Note that MiP does not have edge detection, so do not allow it to roam freely in an area with edges from which it could fall.
