     296Now start drawing a path for your robot by selecting the robot ID on the top left of the Robot Dashboard. On the top left, you can also choose between straight paths and bezier curves. [[BR]]
     297Always start your path by clicking on its ''Safe zone'' (the circle below the charging station with the ID of the robot in it) and dragging towards a location of your choice. Be sure that you don't cross any obstacles (marked in yellow or blue). If you do cross obstacles, the Robot Dashboard will tell you (and you will not be allowed to start driving that path). Add some more segments to your path and make sure that your robots returns somewhere near its safe zone (circle with ID of the robot) at the end of your scenario.

     318At the end of your experiment, click on ''Actions'' again, go to the ''User'' tab, select ''Auto dock'' and hit ''Send'' to park the robot in its docking station. If the robot is too far away from its docking station, you should use the ''Safe Return'' option, which will automatically search for the shortest path towards its docking station.
