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.

Documentation can be found here.

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.
