Communicate UR5 to Labview

Can i recieve the signals from my UR5 to Labview?

I want to recieve the flag on Labview when the robot arrives the position that i programed and send to the robot when i want to move to next position or when the robot need to stop or pause.

Take a look at this library: https://underautomation.com

It provides diagram blocks to control and supervise a UR robot in LabView.

In your case you could either :

  • periodically read a program variable from LabView (flag)
  • or receive an XML-RPC request in LabView when your program ends. Your LabView VI can then return a position to your robot.
