Robotic Arm

Extension Description
Program and control the robotic arm with evive.

Introduction

The extension enables you to program and control the robotic arm with evive.

PictoBlox Blocks

To work in the stage mode, we have to upload firmware in evive which can communicate with PictoBlox in real-time. With the help of this block, we will use the upload stage mode firmware to the robot.
This block defines the PWM pins to which each of the servos is connected.
This block should be included every time you work with the robotic arm as this block calibrates the angles of the servo motors and saves it in the memory of evive.
This block is used to set the angles at which the gripper of the robotic arm opens and closes. You need to use this block every time, you open or close the gripper as this block defines at which angles the gripper claw is opened and at which it is closed.
This block adds the offset on the end effector position along the specified length direction i.e. the direction in which the robotic arm is facing and the Z direction. The block is mainly used to calibrate the end-effector with respect to the base.  
This block moves the robotic arm’s end-effector to the specified X, Y, and Z positions in the specified time.
This block moves the robotic arm’s end-effector to the specified X, Y, and Z position in a line in the specified time. Whenever we use this block, the robotic arm breaks the line from one position to another position in smaller lines and follow them.
This block moves the robotic arm’s end-effector in a circular motion in the specified time. 
The block moves the end-effector in an arc.
The block sets the end-effector to the specified position on the selected axis and the other two positions remain the same.
The block sets the end-effector to move by a specified value in the selected axis and the other two positions remain the same.
The block sets the value of the servo by the value you enter. Whereas the angle of other servos remains the same.
This block opens and closes the gripper of the robotic arm by setting the gripper servo motor the opening angle and the closing angle set by the user using set gripper open angle to () & close angle to () block.
This block reports the value of the angle of the selected servo of the robotic arm.
This block reports the current position of the end effector in the selected axis.
