As we are trying to improve the intuitiveness of our user interface, I think we should change the way users have to interact with the robot manager and the connect button.
I think for all simulated robots it would be okay, if they get connected once a ComponentStep is in the cedar-architecture and the architecture is running. Everything else feels like a big overhead. Ideally the user should open the Robotmanager only once or twice during a project and not every time the architecture is loaded.
I think we could implement such a behavior and define in the robot.conf file, whether an automatic connection should be possible.
Unless there are objections to this proposal, I will start with this after the summerschool ;)
