Owning Palette: Robotics VIs
Requires: Robotics Module. This topic might not match its corresponding palette in LabVIEW depending on your operating system, licensed product(s), and target.
Use the Simulator VIs to control the robotics simulator and interact with components in a robotics simulation.
|Continue Simulator Service||Restarts the robotics simulator if you call the Pause Simulator Service VI prior to running this VI.|
|Get Simulator Reference||Returns a reference to a component defined in the manifest file for the current simulation instance. You must manually select the polymorphic instance to use.|
|Pause Simulator Service||Pauses the simulation instance the robotics simulator is currently running. You can use this VI to temporarily halt the simulator in order to define or change the environment or robots in the simulation instance.|
|Simulator Assistant||Controls a robotics simulator and interacts with robot components. You can specify the sensors and actuators of a robot that you want to control in a simulation environment. The sensors and actuators you specify display as block diagram inputs and outputs.|
|Start Simulator Service||Calls the robotics simulator and initializes the simulation scene you define in a manifest file.|
|Stop Simulator Service||Stops the robotics simulator from running the current simulation instance.|
|Take Simulation Steps||Takes forward the robotics simulator the number of time steps that you specify to advance the current time of the simulation.|
|Offline Configuration VIs||Use the Offline Configuration VIs to create and edit manifest files from which the robotics simulator reads to display simulated components. Using these VIs to create a simulation instance is an advanced feature. If you do not need to include custom components in the simulation scene, use the Robotics Environment Simulator Wizard instead.|
