I am trying to simulate a more complex pick and placescenario. I have a robot placed on a linear axis along a conveyour. On this conveyour are objects with known constant distance between each other and they are moving with constant speed. The robot should move on its linear axis in front of one object and place some parts on this object. After one object has been handled, the robot should move to the next object and synchronize its movement with the second object on the conveyour and so on.
I tried it to us python script as mentioned in the tutorial “placing parts on moving objects”, however, the the function (linearMoveToMtx_ExternalBase) used in the tutorial cannot utilize the external axis.
Then I tried to move the robot positioner with an additional python script, but the movements of the positioner and the robot do not harmonize, e.g. the robot starts to jump around and cannot place parts correctly.
If there is anyone with an idea on how to get such a scenario working, help is much appreciated!
