  • "GoTo Position" cannot be used in a program that is started via web interface

    I use RobotinoFactory and can create maps, add poses and paths - so everything works fine.
    I have then created a program using RobotinoView that uses these poses with the function block "GoTo Position". I can start the program in RobotinoView and everything works. But I cannot start this program from Robotino's web interface after uploading it.

    Is there anyway to fix this? I would like to start the program via HTTP so I rely on this way of starting programs...

    Is there anyone that could give at least some hints on what could be the problem ?

      Hi!

      This could happen for one of several reasons:
      - Your Robotino View desktop version more recent than used on Robotino -> You may have used blocks, e.g. Python which are not yet existing on your Robotino OS.
      - Webinterface does not have permissions to run programs, this sometimes happens after an OS upgrade.
      In any case I would suggest connecting to Robotino via VNC to locally open the program and see if you can run it like this.

      We will publish a new package with recommendations for compatible View, Factory and OS versions very soon.

      Regards

        Thank you very much. I guess the first bullet point could be the cause for my problem. I can start all kinds of programs through the web interface so I'm quite sure the second bullet point is not causing any problems. I'm going to wait for the package and check whether the problem persists after a Robotino OS update.

        I guess you're aware of this, but: It's really hard to find documentation to anything about Robotino. Many functionalities are documented in a very "minimalistic way" to put it mildly. Some things are not documented at all.
        When working with Robotino, I sometimes had the feeling that the overall Robotino project is "dead". But after asking some questions in this forum I got answers like yours (and others before) that show you are still maintaining the software. It would be awesome if this would become more clear through the documentation (e.g. the wiki), too

          Hi again,

          the delay of this reply already underscores your point: It is hard to maintain all aspects of a platform keep documentation accurate and be responsive at the same time :-)

          While we are proud to provide a unique approach with Robotino in terms of size, industrial appeal and openess we are always fighting for priorities as too many things are worth doing.
          I can assure you that Robotino is alive and well and we work to further improve the platform every day. As Robotino is 100% made by us there is also a lot of things to consider that are not software - mechanical, electrical, electronic and inter-connected things.
          We provide as many interfaces as possible and are always seeking for academia partnerships to create and hopefully maintain more - if you see an opportunity to invest a thesis or project work into Robotino, do not hesitate to contact me.

          Regards
