The Basic Concepts section describes some of the key pieces of functionality that are required for building a task with Intera. Starting with Actions, which are the basic sequence of events used to train the robot. Signals goes into details of how to connect your actions to information from the outside world. Finally Tasks are the basic unit, composed of a combination of Actions and Signals, that describe a complete set of work for the robot.
The Modify Panel is used to modify features for a particular Action/Action Group. Depending on which Action/Action Group is selected the Modify Panel will have a couple different parameters that can be changed.
After training an Action, the action settings can be modified or practiced from the Action Training Screen.
Advanced Action Settings
The Advanced Settings Screen provides the ability to customize specific parameters for individual actions.
Modifying a Path can help the robot avoid known obstacles and achieve a trained location.
Add or Copy Actions
Adding and Copying actions is a quick and easy way to duplicate an action to another location within the workspace of the robot while maintaining the custom settings of the action.
Arm Coordination is a critical concept to understand in order to maximize the throughput of the Baxter Robot. Baxter's arms can be coordinated using the coordinate function in the task order screen or by using internal signals. Use the links below to learn more.
Robots running the Intera platform can be locked or unlocked using a password stored on a USB stick. This feature helps prevent unauthorized personnel from tampering with the tasks stored on the robot.
