A new yarp2 driver for MEI control cards is eventually of interest for the babybot setup.

    Hi Carlos,

    There's some tips for how to get started on wrapping a control board for YARP2 here:
    http://eris.liralab.it/wiki/YARP_Motor_Control

    Ideally we could find someone familiar with the YARP1 MEI stuff to bring that across. It should be very straightforward. I won't have time for it for a while, but would be happy to answer questions.

    The alternative is to compile the YARP1 code, using the YARP2 network compatibility libraries.

    There seems to be some activity along these lines by Claudio in $YARP_ROOT/src/libYARP_dev/src/mei.

    Yes, Matia that is working with Claudio is programming a Yarp2 version of the MAI control. I presume he is using Claudio's user to make the updates

    The driver got ported, at src/libYARP_dev/mei. Closing this request.
