The new API2 is based on a RPC like infrastructure. The REC-RPC library is a interprocess communication middleware similar to ROS. It is completely based on Qt and does not have any other dependencies.

New features

The major new features introduced in the API2 are:

  • Kinect sensor now supported
  • Support for up to 4 cameras.
  • Support for up to 4 laser rangefinders.
  • Support for camera controls like brightness, contrast, auto white balance (Note: The supported controls depend on the camera used).
  • Integrated web server for controlling Robotino by a web browser or your smartphone.
  • Easier build process due to minimal dependencies on external libraries.
  • Uses TCP port 12080 for communication only. This minimizes problems with firewalls.
