Hi Roger, I see your view on remote control APIs have not changed
The version of the remote API that EV3Control for motors creates the regulated motor class on the EV3, so the regulator runs locally.
Remote access APIs seem to be popular, and they are mainly working, so I don't plan to remove them, despite most of the leJOS developers not liking them. People seem to like to use them for testing and their first robots.
It is is bit like the recent Darpa Robotics Challenge. This year the teams used a lot of remote control. Next year they have to do it all autonomously.
