Drone Simulation


i would like to have a simulation with a drone. I could find the Quadcopter in the eCat, but i have no idea how to control it.

I want the quadcopter to fly on defined path.

Thank you for the help


you can use the Quadcopter component as resource of the Works library. That mean the Quadcopter can execute transport tasks (e.g. Feed > Need) instead of using a Works human or a robot component with Works RobotController.

As far as I can figure out the Quadcopter always uses a linear flight path from source to target Works process component.

Unfortunately it seems that at the moment the Quadcopter component only works with 4.0 Works library. I’ve attached a small example.
