Can you program this droid to navigate around your house? I see there is an app that you use with it but do you always have to control Artoo this way?Answer
You can only program R2 via Swift Playgrounds, which is a story based method of teaching programming. Because it’s story based you can’t really program him to walk a particular path. But there is a patrol mode in the sphero made app which will cause R2 to be self guided in his exploration of his environment. Does that answer your question?
