This is my first post on this forum. Our company just recently started developing programs for a Fanuc robot. In our setup, we have a client-server setup to control the robot. As an engineer, I encounter the situation I want to be able to send a command to instantaneously stop the robot. I want to do this by some command that should be present in the Karel environment. I also want to be able to tell the robot it is okay to 'unstop' , however not to resume motion, but be able to perform new motion commands in TP. What I found is this:
HOLD GROUP -- for a single robot
-- do some code that manipulates the INT_REG used to store pointers to the motion stack that is stored in the STR_REG
What I understand from the manual is that HOLD GROUP command stops all motion, and UNHOLD undoes this holding? However, using my code above results in an error. Furthermore, I tried the routine STOP but this also results in an error.
Are there any suggestions you might have for me? I would be very glad if there are some idea's on this one! Ofcourse, I looked around the forum to see if something similar was encountered earlier..
