PROGRAM IN PYTHON WITH PATHPILOT ROBOT
Python is the world’s most popular programming language. In computer terms, it’s been around forever — about three decades. It’s easy to learn, powerful, and because it’s commonplace, you’ll be able to integrate your ZA6 with other Python-driven systems. With over 200,000 Python packages available, most of the work required to connect the ZA6 to the outside world is already done for you.
Want to probe a set of features, save the coordinates to a .csv file and push that file to a webserver? Easy, thanks to the csv and http requests Python libraries. Anything you can do in a Python program you can do with the ZA6 robot. Browse our sample programs onGitHub
A TECH TEACHER’S PET
You can quickly write a simple teach-mode program on the ZA6 to help your students learn concepts needed to be successful in industrial robotics. Unlike other robots designed for the classroom, the ZA6 lets you teach industrial robot concepts like user frames, tool frames, the differences between move types, waypoint types, and more.
ROS IS BUILT FOR RESEARCH
Tormach’s PathPilot Robot control system is built on ROS. Robot Operating System (ROS) is the most popular platform for robotics research.* The open-access nature of the ZA6 creates real opportunities for robotics research.
All system variables are exposed to the user via the API, many in real-time (1 kHz), offering tremendous advantages to people already familiar with ROS programming. And because Tormach is committed to open source, there are no black boxes in the system. You can look all the way under the hood.
*(Over 4,000 academic papers cite “ROS: an open-source Robot Operating System” (Quigley et al., 2009))
