UDP socket sensor

Hi there !

I got a new sensor, ATI_NET_FT, and it works with UDP sockets. When I create a socket communication with my PC in Eclipse, it works just fine. But when I tried to communicate my robot to the sensor via UDP in a URCap, it doesn’t work.

The UR Robots only works with TCP/IP? Is there a way to use UDP communication?

Thanks for your time

Hi @flopez,

How were you trying to implement it exactly? UDP communication is definitely possible through a Python daemon. You could then pass the data into Polyscope using XMLRPC.
