Floating robots are robots that enable multiple users to use UiPath Robot on multiple workstations, as the robot is not tied to a specific machine. With one Named User license, one user can use UiPath Robot on a maximum of three machines at a time.
My name is John Smith, I am a call center operator in a team of 20 working on whatever laptop I find available when I get to work. In Orchestrator, my system administrator needs to define one machine template for the 20 laptops we have, and a floating robot using my username. This enables me to use each of the 20 laptops using my username and the key generated by the machine template.
标准机器人是浮动机器人的前身，只有在使用传统文件夹时才能找到它们。标准机器人限制用户在单个工作站上使用 UiPath 机器人，因为机器人绑定到特定计算机，即在 Orchestrator 中创建标准机器人时设置的计算机。标准机器人仅适用于始终在同一台计算机上工作的用户，或者每次连接到计算机时名称都保持不变的用户。
My name is John Smith, I am a call center operator working daily on the same laptop whose name is LA4324. In Orchestrator, my system administrator needs to define for me a standard machine with the same exact name as my laptop, and a standard robot using my username, robot configured to connect to the standard machine named LA4324. If I ever change my laptop, the system administrator needs to delete this robot, and create a new one, for the new machine.

在 Orchestrator 中，就机器人管理而言，有两个方向，与它们所操作的文件夹类型相对应：
- The ABC of robots in Orchestrator.
- Mapping between real-life scenarios and the corresponding Orchestrator setups.
- Info about machines, what they do, their types and how to use them in relation to robots.
Robot management is done manually (Folder context > Robots), meaning you have to configure the robot and machine entities by hand. This includes:
- robot creation (includes configuration of its execution settings, licensing and authentication options)
- robot deletion
- adding a Robot to an environment such that it's able to execute processes from that environment
- removing a Robot from the environment to restrict it from executing the processes.
Unattended robots must be created manually, one for each machine/user combination in your environment.
UiPath Robot can only have access to processes found in one folder at a time. If you want it to have access to processes found in a different classic folder, you are required to delete the corresponding robot entity from the first folder, and provision it in the new one.
In classic folders, you can use any type of standard robot (in conjunction with standard machines) and attended-only floating robots (in conjunction with machine templates).
Robots can automatically download processes, and execute them under custom settings. You can configure automatic process downloading, logging level, font smoothing, and resolution in the Settings tab while creating or editing a robot.
After being created, robots can be monitored on a per-folder basis the Monitoring Robots page (Monitoring > Robots)
In classic folders, the license type of the robot is configured when creating or editing the robot entity in Orchestrator. Depending on the robot connection status, some restrictions might apply to editing. See here details about robot statuses.
In classic folders, you can use any type of standard robot (in conjunction with standard machines) and attended floating robots (in conjunction with machine templates).

如果同一台计算机上有多个机器人，建议您在同一个环境和 Orchestrator 租户中将它们分组。否则，部署同一个流程的不同版本时可能会发生某些错误。
