The importance of, and the prospect for, areas of mobile robot specification were discussed. The need to focus on the software that allows the hardware to improve in cost, size, and reliability without major changes to the software infrastructure was emphasized. Functionalities like 'get coordinates' or 'get number of bytes transmitted' that must be clearly specified were also discussed. The issues with API and suggestions on how to expose a robotics building block with an API were also elaborated.
