 The following tutorial will go over the basic operations for Furo.  Furo is a service robot equipped with an on-board webcam and touch screen and is meant to be interactive with the user.  Furo can follow you, talk to you with simple commands, play music, dance and many other things. ​ I will discuss the absolute basics such as turning on/off Furo, how to charge and run Furo, make Furo dance and play music as well as a small introduction to programming Furo with Qt. Further tutorials on Furo will include an in depth look at the programming. The following tutorial will go over the basic operations for Furo.  Furo is a service robot equipped with an on-board webcam and touch screen and is meant to be interactive with the user.  Furo can follow you, talk to you with simple commands, play music, dance and many other things. ​ I will discuss the absolute basics such as turning on/off Furo, how to charge and run Furo, make Furo dance and play music as well as a small introduction to programming Furo with Qt.

 After flipping the switch to turn Furo on you will be loaded into a Grub screen. There are two operating systems on Furo, 32-bit Ubuntu 14.04 and 32-bit Windows Embedded Standard. ​ We will be focusing on the Windows portion of Furo for this tutorial. ​ Although the screen is touchscreen it is best to have a keyboard and mouse connected since we do not have touchscreen supported on Ubuntu and because it is laggy in Windows. Note, it is labeled as "​Windows Vista" in Grub. Also, for future reference the password to log into Ubuntu is double space bar. After flipping the switch to turn Furo on you will be loaded into a Grub screen.
