1. To connect the robot via USB, plug the A/B USB cable into the A/B USB port. Wait a few seconds for your computer to establish the connection before opening the OT-2 App.
2. The app searches for robots automatically. The available robots will show up under Robots. To connect, toggle the switch next to your OT-2's name. Sometimes you might need to try a few times before the robot establishes connection with the app.
3. When OT-2 is successfully connected, the toggle button will turn blue.
Once this connection is established, you can then connect over wifi. 📡
