First NG and Robin use different routing protocols. Which are incompatible with each other.
NG uses a Batman protocol and Robin uses the Robin protocol.
NG is closed source firmware, Robin is open source firmware.
NG only supports their hardware openmesh.com, Robin supports third party hardware. NG will work on some third party hardware but reviews are mixed on the performance. My experience is I get much better performance with Robin on my eoc 1650's.
Both are actively developed, NG is developing faster, but only for their chosen hardware.
Although once united robin and ng are totally different creatures now.
I suggest pouring over the wiki
