Automatically sent messages from the device


Most of messages sent from the device are responses regarding enquiry messages. For example, when sending the message /getPosition to the device in order to acquire one's current position, the response message sent from the device will be /position. However, some messages are, as opposed to the responses to the specific messages, automatic messages which correspond to the state changes of the board. This chapter explains this sort of automatic messages.
