Anki Vector escape cabin installation detailed explanation

The githut address of vector’s escape pod:

Prepared machine environment

  • win10
  • Install docker (if you install Baidu by yourself)


Download the script with git first;

git clone

Right-click and use the administrator to open: Git Bash


Switch to the downloaded script directory: (Note: the path "/")

cd D:/git_projects/escapepod-docker/windows

Then press to execute:


problem solved

(If you open cmd directly, it will report:'docker-machine' is not an internal or external command, nor is it a runnable program;) (If Git Bash is not executed by an administrator ./DOCKER-ESCAPEPOD-START.bat, it will report: no permission;)

If it reports: VBoxManage not found. Make sure VirtualBox is installed and VBoxManage is in the path //Solution: Need to install VirtualBox-6.1.22-144080-Win.exe

如果报:Error with pre-create check: "This computer is running Hyper-V. VirtualBox won't boot a 64bits VM when Hyper-V is activated. Either use Hyper-V as a driver, or disable the Hyper-V hypervisor. (To skip this check, use --virtualbox-no-vtx-check)"

​ //Solve:在DOCKER-ESCAPEPOD-START.bat的第52行增加:--virtualbox-no-vtx-check,如下图


Execution: docker-machine activeError:

Error getting IP address: ssh command error: command: ip addr show err: exit status 255 //Solution: directly docker-machine ip ESCAPEPOD, you can find the ip

Database Connectivity

  • Modify the same network as the host and the container, add: --network=host

docker run -it --rm --name escapepod --network=host -d cyb3rdog/escapepod:latest

  • Modify the mongod.conf text to support remote access:


  • Use "Navicat Premium 15" to connect; as shown in the figure

There are only 2 tables in the database: intents, licenses


The contents of the intents table:


The contents of the licenses table:


to sum up

  • It was discovered after installation that the escape pod (escape pod) also needs a license ;
  • escapepod currently does not understand the anti-editing interpretation;
