The new API2 is currently under development. The main new features are

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

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