Can we see the live image from the wrist camera when it’s trying to locate the part?

On the UR teach pendant and/or externally (e.g. computer screen)?

    @Kaleb_Rodes On the teach pendant that is not possible, you can only have the annotated image that was processed for the part detection.

    However from an external pc you can have the live image from a web browser. There are two use cases:
    1. The robot program is not running. In this case you can access the image from this uri
      http://<robot_ip_address>:4242/current.jpg?annotations=<on|off>
    2. The program is running. In this case, before accessing the image as in 1., you must issue this command to the vision server:
      http://<robot_ip_address>:4242/captureimage
    You can use your browser with an autorefresh plugin to automatically send the commands. The result is however not really 'live'. The is a large delay.

    So we can see the image in real time, but is it possible to export the image at *.jpg format of each of the photos that the "Camera Locate" instruction generates?

    Thanks in advance.

    No, not automatically. To do that you would have to monitor when a camera locate is called and get the image from its uri.
