CID 0x00 is “Enter Deep Sleep” (a name we are trying to change to more accurately describe what is actually happening (the bot turning off)). There is an optional parameter that will delay the deep sleep command for the specified amount of seconds from 0-255. (0 or no argument means immediate power down).
NOTE: This will also cut power to your attached board. It is important to power down your Raspberry Pi/Arduino/etc before killing its power source (the RVR).
Additionally, CID 0x0A is “Prepare for Shutdown” (Start process to prepare for shut down) and CID 0x0B is a “Ready for Shutdown” indication.
In regards to a place to go to find what the most up to date version of the firmware is, I am waiting on the team as to
- Whether there is a place to go to find this information on your own and
- If our list to update users via email is definitely ready to go for the next Firmware update
What I can tell you is that the mobile app checks every robot it connects to, every time it connects, to ensure that the robot has the most up-to-date firmware, and updates it if not. With this being the case, the app is both telling you the most up-to-date version AND what version is on your robot
I will let you know if I find another place where you can see the latest version!
