Querying DCS from Karel

  • Does anyone know a way to ask the DCS portion of the controller if a given point will intersect a DCS zone with the current user model?

    I am writing a program that does path analysis and want to test for the above case.

    Check out the Fanuc position converter I wrote here! Now open source!

    Check out my example Fanuc Ethernet/IP Explicit Messaging program here!

  • As far as I can tell, the DCS system is based entirely on the current state of the robot. So I don't think there's any ability to do any sort of predictive analysis. You'd have to move the robot into position.

  • interference check has some stuff that might work for what you want, but it based off of the TCP of the robot. i cant think of a way to do what you want though Karel without recreating the kinematics for each model. Fanuc did not release any karel built-ins to accompany DCS.
