Robotic arms need to communicate with other robots in a work cell, or factory. This is called HANDSHAKING and can be done between different machines, devices and robots. It is a very simple form of communication and is done with simple ones and zeros; or “ons” and “offs”.
In this activity you will learn how to make a robot handshake with another robot. Robot 1 will pass a part into another robot’s work envelope and then send a signal and go to a safe position. The other robot will then receive the signal, get the part, and place it somewhere else.
