    hey,I want to create a component similar to the Works Robot Controller,but I hope it can directly control the gripper to perform tasks such as pick and place.

    Can anyone help me, thank you.As shown in the figure, I want to design the base behind the gripper as the Works Robot Controller.

    Hello!  Do you want to create a component to act as a gripper? Explain a bit the problem to be solved, and the what instruments you have to do so.

    Cheers!

    I am not trying to create a gripper, but I want to create a component that controls the gripper, just like a robotic hand and can write tasks like a robot controller.

    Cheers!

    Hi ,

    I recommend you to define kinematics and add Task signal that lets you to receive signals from works task manager . Thus you will be able to manage your system via machine process task.

    If you specifically want to  use a works robot manager, you can define an interface to attach actual robot manager and this will let to manage your robot .

    I hope this will give you an idea .

    Yeah. I got that.

    You can model a box and call it “Robot_Controller”.

    Method 1:

    Define input and output signals as boolean behaviors. Also, create properties. After that, write a python script that controls this new component, based on the input signals and properties. This component will act as a mediator.

    Method 2:

    You can get the behaviors/properties of any component in the layout using the “Robot_Controller” python script. Then do what you want with that component you just got.

    I attached a component for you to start developing.

    See this tutorial at Academy for starters:

    http://academy.visualcomponents.com/lessons/control-robots/

    But for use case as that simple I would just program the robot. Use Wait for binary input statement etc.
