So, you want to become a RobotApp Developer? Awesome! We made it really easy, check this out...

The User Interface Builder allows you to create interface pages for the Arc and can be used on the Arc mobile app. Without creating a mobile interface, the default Desktop is displayed to thet user - which may be confusing seeing all the controls. Designing an user interface is very easy, and you can create as many as you like.



Prerequisites

  • (optional) Download the ARC App for your mobile/tablet
  • Read the excellent The Robot Program instruction on creating a mobile app here

Note: Controls marked with an asterisk(*) may not have standalone user interfaces and support is limited to the mobile interface builder. For example, the Camera view may be added to a mobile interface, yet it does not have a standalone view. The camera control features are controlled by ControlCommand() via ez-script. This means enabling or disabling tracking of face, color, etc. is executed with ControlCommand().
