Micro-RDK Generic Models
The generic component subtype enables you to add support for unique types of hardware that do not already have an appropriate API defined for them. For more information and models supported by the RDK, see Generic Component.
If your micro-RDK machine includes a resource that isn’t a base, board,encoder, movement sensor, motor, or servo, you can create a modular resource to add support for it as a custom model of the generic subtype.
The micro-RDK works differently from the RDK, so creating modular resources for it is different. Refer to the Micro-RDK Module Template on GitHub for information on how to create custom resources for your micro-RDK machine. You will need to recompile and flash your ESP32 yourself instead of using Viam’s prebuilt binary and installer.
The micro-RDK generic API supports only the following client SDK API method, which operates the same as in the full-featured RDK:
