Robot doesnt pick up volumes

Hello all

Im just making a simple program with kuka sim 4.3.
now my robot doesn’t pick up the volumes on the conveyor.
I’ve searched on the internet but had no luck
I hope the video helps make my problem clear.

If i make the volume of the claws bigger it picks up the orange boxes but doesn’t pick up the volume.
any fixes are welcome!

Hi, can i see your code? i think you didn’t set any $OUT[…] for an action.

Here it is in tekst and in picture, i’ve also included the document at the end

Ok, its as i said. you didn’t have an Output, which you set if you arrived at the grab point. and you don’t set this output to false if you want to release it. Please look for a tutorial in academy.

Try Output 1000 or what you want. Add Out[1000] =true at grab point and Out[1000]= false at release point. take this default settings.

it worked

Thanks for your help its working now!

Dear all
Now I am starting using kuka sim 4.1 with a very simple task: pick up and place an object.
My robot does not pick up the object. I followed the procedure shown in the video adding instructions like $out[101]=FALSE to close the gripper and pick up but it seems not working.
Any help would be very appreciated. In attachment you can find my file
project_template_modificato.vcmx (2.2 MB)

the task is picking object without stopping the conveyor. Is there some “tricks” to do this?
Thanks

hi,

you wait for input signal from sensorSignal, than you can set Engine signal from conveyor to False (in robot program) , connect signal between robot output and conveyor engine signal:
