Python API Investigation

Hi everyone,

I’m exploring visual components to see whether is really suitable for my purposes. I’m posting because only there is little about it.

Python API works just with robot and automated resources right? I know from a previous thread that they do not work with humans.

Second, is it possible to feed sensors real time data into such environment? For instance using MQTT, REST or even web sockets API.

Thank you to all in advance.


VC currently uses stackless python 2.7, so not all python packages are guaranteed to work inside VC simulation.
For this reason, I recommend using the .NET API to develop a plugin for external communication. You can import relevant NuGet packages and get up to speed quickly.

The Academy has some good tutorials on how to get started with developing .NET addons.
