How difficult is it to program a robot with RDC?

RDC has been developed with the goal of a simple and intuitive user interface. With the 3D view on the robot and the program editor its easy to set up programs. There is no real programming e.g. in C++ or python involved 🙂

How do I program the robot?

Robots are in most cases programmed by a teach-in precedure: you move the robot to a position and then record this position. Doing so and adding structure (loops, if-then-else, …) and interaction (inputs and outputs) a robot program is created.
The RDC does it excatly this way, using an intuitive 3D user interface. I does take only a few minutes to set up the first program!

What kind of hardware does the control run on?

The Maker edition runs on a standard Windows PC with middle class hardware. The Industrial version can run on Windows and Linux. For OEM version also embedded systems (RaspPi etc) or ARM microcontroller can be targeted.
