myCobot API

Before using the following function interfaces, import our API library first. Otherwise it is impossible to run successfully. To download and import the library, refer to 9.2 Compiling and Running of a MycobotCpp Case.

1 Preconditions for controlling the robot arm

1.1 MyCobot(string port, int baud=115200)
Function: to instantiate MyCobot
Return value: none
Parameter description: Parameter 1: serial port number ("COM*" on Windows (such as COM30) Parameter 2: baud rate (default 115200)
Note: If you want to call the following API, you need to instantiate it first

1.2 Open()
Function: to open the serial port
Return value: none
Parameter description: none
Note: for communication with the robot arm, the serial port should be opened first

1.3 Close()
Function: to close the serial port
Return value: none
Parameter description: none
Note: When the program ends, it is better to close the serial port

2 Overall running status of Robot

2.1 PowerOn()
Function: to power up the robot arm
Return value: none
Parameter description: none
Note: After the robot arm is powered up, it cannot be moved manually

2.2 PowerOff()
Function: to cut off teh power for the robot arm
Return value: none
parameter description: none
Note: After the robot arm is powered up, if you want to move it manually, you may use this api to cut off the power of the robot arm

3.6 SendOneCoord(int coord, int value, int speed)
Function: to send single parameter coordinates
Return value: none
Parameter description: Parameter 1: coordinate number (1-6(x, y, z, rx, ry, rz)); Parameter 2: coordinate (The values of X, Y and Z range from -300 to 300.00mm; the values of RX, RY and RZ range from -180 to 180); Parameter 3: speed (0-100)

4 Atom end IO control

4.1 SetDigitalOut(byte pin_number, byte pin_signal)
Function: to set the high and low levels of output io
Return value: none
