(CSALT x COMPAS RRC)
The following video summarizes our first month with the collaborative robots in our lab. This month was dedicated to learning the basics of how to operate the robots safely and effectively. The team began with manually jogging (moving) the robot with the integrated joystick and then moved on to generating designs and the relevant information in Rhino/Grasshopper. This information is read and then run on the robot through the use of COMPAS RRC, a method of robotic communication through the use of the programming language, Python. Through the use of COMPAS RRC, the team was able to use the robot to draw images, stack blocks into a tower or a wall, and move the robots simultaneously with one piece of code.
