Differences between Cloud- and Local Control

Besides communicating over the internet, the following functionality-changes occur when using the ZBOS Cloud services to control a robot:

  • Only robots linked to the Cloud-account can be accessed (see Link robot using ZBOS Cloud platform for more information)

  • Images or videos in the Multimedia-page will no longer be previewed

  • Images or videos in the Multimedia-page will no longer be shown in the multimedia-blocks in the composer.

  • Multimedia-files can no longer be downloaded directly from the robot

  • Multimedia-files can’t be removed from the robot

  • An additional tab will be shown for the data stored on the cloud-account (e.g. multimedia, surveys/quizzes, kiosks, …​)
    multimedia cloud tab

  • The list of robots connected to the account will be shown
    robot connection modal

  • Lag may occur more frequently based on the type of internet-connection (e.g. 4G)

The cloud-tab will not be shown in the multimedia-composer-block.
To download multimedia-files from the robot, store them on the cloud-account before downloading them to the connected device.
