Robot Security


Nirviknandy started an interesting topic on the community about robot security. It's a concern that is growing among robot users especially when making sure that robots do not get hijacked or compromised. Have you worked on securing your robots before? How did you handle it?

Path Height Control With the FT 300 Force Torque Sensor

Our Integration Coach, Louis_bergeron, shared a new application package for you to use with your FT 300. The goal of this package is to record a path and play it back relative to its start position. Using the path recording feature of our Force Torque Sensor and some programming tools, you will be able to perform applications in a much faster and easier way compared to a more traditional method. Here's a short example of the path height control. You can then jump right to it by downloading the application package here!

Resultant Force Calculation

Matthewd92 wants to know if anyone developed a script or formula for calculating the resultant force that the sensor is seeing, resolved into a single vector. Share your formulas!
