sendJointConfiguration

Command robot to move to desired joint configuration

Description

sendJointConfiguration(ur,jointconfig) commands the Universal Robots cobot connected through ROS interface, based on the specified joint configuration.

example

sendJointConfiguration(ur,jointconfig,EndTime=endtime) commands the Universal Robots cobot connected through ROS interface, based on the specified joint configuration and a maximum duration. The method commands the robot to complete the motion from current joint configuration to the desired joint configuration within the duration.

Examples

collapse all

Connect to a physical or simulated cobot at IP address 192.168.2.112 on the ROS network.

ur = universalrobot('192.168.2.112');

Command the cobot to by providing the desired joint configuration and 5-seconds duration as inputs.

jointWaypoints = [20 -90 -70 -20 70 0]*pi/180;
sendJointConfiguration(ur,jointWaypoints,EndTime=5);

Input Arguments

collapse all

Connection to physical or simulated cobot from Universal Robots, specified as a universalrobot object.

Desired joint configuration of the physical or simulated cobot, represented as a 1-by-6 numeric vector, in the range [-pi,pi].

Data Types: numeric

Maximum duration by which the simulated cobot must try to complete the motion to reach the desired joint configuration, specified in seconds. In some cases, even with this argument specified, there is no guarantee that the cobot will reach the desired joint configuration. In such cases, use sendJointConfigurationAndWait instead.

Data Types: double
