    Hello Kinova !

    We are trying to rotate our KG-3 gripper around the 2 opposable fingers.
    Currently, the end effector frame is aligned with the motor 6, and when we try to rotate a knob, too much forces are applied on the fingers.

    Does the function SetEndEffectorOffset(…) will specify a new end effector frame for the internal IK of the API ?

    Thanks a lot !

    Hello LMathieu, I hope all is well!

    Yes, with this function you can program an offset in X, Y and Z (in meters).

    SetEndEffectorOffset (unsigned int status, float x, float y, float z)
    This function Set the end effector offset’s parameters. The end effector’s offset is a translation offset in meter applied to the end effector of the robotic arm. status indicates if the offset is applied or not (0 = not applied, 1 = applied)

    Keep us posted of the results!

    Thanks,

    Hello,

    I successfully managed to turn around the 2 fingers on the KG-3 with the function setEndEffectorOffset with a offset of 0.02m on Y and by sending cartesian velocity command 🙂

    Thanks for the help!

THE NEW NORMAL: UPROOTING ASSISTIVE NORMS in 2018

A new year is a time for new beginnings and starting things afresh. In the spirit of making a change, there’s a specific paradigm that needs to be addressed, or, as many in the industry would say, “disrupted.” Consider 2018 the year of “The New Normal” for the Assistive market. The New Normal is a term coined by our colleague, Abe Clark, in the United States.

STEERING TOWARDS CO-CREATION, COLLABORATION, AND INNOVATION – #KINOVAONTHEROAD in 2018

My objective at Kinova is to build bridges between people, businesses, educational organizations, and governments to effectively fuel the cycle of innovation.
