  • 2: RX direction coordinate value decreases
  • 3: RY direction coordinate value decreases
  • 4: RY direction coordinate value increases
  • 5: X direction coordinate value increases
  • 6: X direction coordinate value decreases
  • 7: Y direction coordinate value decreases
  • 8: Y direction coordinate value increases
  • 9: Z direction coordinate value increases
  • 10: Z direction coordinate value decreases
  • 11: RZ direction coordinate value decreases
  • 12: RZ direction coordinate value increases
  • 13: Wake up the handle. After the handle is not used for a long time after connection, it will enter sleep mode. You need to press this button to wake up.

1.Connecting devices

Connect the MyCobot and handle to the computer.

2.Install required libraries

Download code:

Open the terminal, Enter the pymycobot/demo/handle_control folder, and run the following command。

pip3 install -r requirements.txt

3.Modify port number

Edit the file

import pygame
import time
from pymycobot import MyCobot
import threading
# Change com7 to the port number detected by your computer
mc = MyCobot("com7")

Finally. run the program.


Note: After running the program, first click the 14 button to check the machine connection status, the machine connection status is normal (if it is abnormal, you will not be able to perform other operations, please solve the abnormal connection problem first), and then click Right 1 button, other operations can only be performed after the machine reaches the initial point.
