    Hello everyone,

    I am currently working on a simulation of a factory line. Therefore we use Works Tasks to control a robot which is mounted on an AGV. On the robot a parametric box gripper is attached to grasp trays.

    I have not yet found a way to open and close the gripper when picking things. I know that the usual way with a static robot is to work with signals. But I could not figure out how to solve this when working with works processes and feed and need tasks.

    Has anyone got an idea how to open and close a gripper that is mounted on a mobile robot?

    Thanks!

    Something like this?

    In the Brains script of AGV, look for #MyCode. I inserted it for Pick and Place functions in which Pick sets the action signal in the gripper to True, and Place sets the signal to False.

    Bear in mind, I made the gripper and logic in 5 minutes, so just a proof of concept.
