Switch local mode with urcap

Hi all,

is it possible to set the robot mode to local or remote with an urcap plugin?

As there is no reference in the API i don’t think so.
What might work is to include a java class that tricks the robot into remote mode by opening a socket connection to the local host but i think this also might “freeze” the Polyscope UI.

That’s an interesting approach but that may not be the way UR would support I think.

But thanks for your reply!
