Reboot and Halt - Best practices

Reboot and Halt the Robot with NAOqi running

qicli call ALSystem.shutdown
qicli call ALSystem.reboot

This will trigger a few things on the NAOqi side, such as stopping the Life properly and making sure the robot goes to a rest condition. Prefer this method if you can.

For further details, see:

Reboot and Halt the Robot without NAOqi running

Replace ... By ...

For further details, see: Sudo and root permissions.

Restart NAOqi

Replace ... By ...

/etc/init.d/naoqi stop nao stop
/etc/init.d/naoqi restart nao restart

For further details, see: Restarting and stopping NAOqi.


Since Version 2.1, the history of new, updated and removed packages is so long it would be too fastidious to read. It is easier to refer directly to the current list: Open Source Projects.
