Marker Features

The new C Series Robot looks similar to the Gen2 Robot, but can do a whole lot more!
Which robot do you have? The article you see here applies only to the Swivl C Series Robot. Click here for the Swivl Gen 2 Robot article.


Marker Functions


The Primary Marker has three functions within the system:

  • Tracking (via infrared)
  • Audio Capture (built-in microphone)
  • Control of the App/Device (buttons)

Each Secondary Marker serves primarily as another source of audio.




Center Button: The Center Button can be set to perform a couple of actions within the Swivl app…

  • Pause Tracking: Pressing the Center Button will pause the Swivl Robot’s tracking, causing it to stay stationary, pointing in one direction until the Center Button is tapped again.
  • 360° Video: Pressing the Center Button will cause the Swivl base to do a complete turn to pan around the room.

Directional Pad: The Right and Left buttons will control the slides that you are presenting within the Swivl app. Right will advance to the next slide, Left will go back to the previous slide. More features coming soon!

Record Button: Tapping the red button on the side of the marker will initiate recording within the Swivl app. Tapping it again will stop the recording.


Marker Colors


The Marker Packs come with sets of 5 pairs of dot stickers, 2 of each color: Red, Blue, Orange, Purple, and Green. When you pair the additional markers to your Swivl Robot, the Swivl app will prompt you to assign a color to each Secondary Marker. When you choose a color in the app, apply the stickers of the same color to each side of the marker to track which color you chose.
