Suggestion | Robot Idle Point

Hello everyone,

I’m not sure if this is the right place to make a suggestion.

Anyway, I think it would be very useful if there was an option to add an idle position for a robot, so it would always be in the same position when not in action.

I usually make it through programming, but it could be easily done with an intuitive option.

Thank you for your attention.

Hello Gustavo,

You can enable “auto homing” from robot transport controller.

If the robot is idle over a specified (“delay” property in auto homing tab) amount of time,
It will call “home” routine.

You can modify the “home” routine and add motion statements to define an idling position/orientation.

Hope this helps!


I didn’t know about that. Awesome, thank you!

I’ll take the oportunity to ask you something. In the following scenario:

  • I want to define a place approach height, and I know how to do that, but in the first boxes the approach needs to be higher so the robot doesn’t colide with the conveyor. Do you know if there’s a way I could work that out easily?

Thank you.
