How Does Swivl Work?

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.


The Swivl Robot connects to your iOS device via the Swivl lightning cable, or by Swivl micro USB if you are using an Android device. This will allow the red button on the marker to start and stop recording when using the Swivl app. The Swivl Robot then follows an infrared signal on the Marker. You should maintain a direct line of sight between the robot and the Marker, and recommend using a table or floor stand to help.


The Marker contains a microphone which allows you to capture high quality audio at a distance, as you teach or present. (The audio settings can be checked within the Swivl app.)

Once you have captured video to the Swivl app, it can then be uploaded to your Swivl account, where you can view, share, and interact with your content.
