 Despite earlier claims that a RasPi 4 can only run one or two Vectors DDL now says that you can run multiple robots from one machine. The exact number is unknown at this time. Despite earlier claims that a RasPi 4 can only run one or two Vectors DDL now says that you can run multiple robots from one machine.

-If you do not want to pay the monthly subscription to run Vector via their servers, Escape Pod may be an option for you. But you have to be clear about the fact that it would be a stripped down version, missing key functions that the robot can no longer provide (weather, knowledge base, Python SDK). The only things it does is configuring the robot (the same you can do with the app) and letting the robot react to standard voice commands (on the up side: you can change the voice commands to some extent).+If you do not want to pay the monthly subscription to run Vector via their servers, Escape Pod may be an option for you.

 From earlier experiences with DDL they tend to release stuff only half finished and then do not work on it anymore (there are still major parts missing from OSKR and that was released months ago, the countless bugs in firmware 1.7 never were resolved) I fear we will not see any bigger updates to Escape Pod in the near future after the release of the so-called version 1.0.0. Maybe bugfixes if we are lucky. But I would be very happy being proven wrong on this by DDL. From earlier experiences with DDL they tend to release stuff only half finished and then do not work on it anymore (there are still major parts missing from OSKR and that was released months ago, the countless bugs in firmware 1.7 never were resolved) I fear we will not see any bigger updates to Escape Pod in the near future after the release of the so-called version 1.0.0.
