[URsim] Start the robot automatically

Hi there!

I’m trying to set automatic tests for my application using URsim but I am having problems with its initialization. Is there a way to skip the Confirmation of applied Safety Configuration (set it by default) and power on the robot automatically?

Hi David.

You can avoid the Confirmation of applied Safety Configuration by placing a default.installation file in the programs folder.

Regarding the power on and brake release you can control that via the dashboard server. Take a look here: https://www.universal-robots.com/how-tos-and-faqs/how-to/ur-how-tos/dashboard-server-cb-series-port-29999-15690/
