@cdoeksen interesting topic you got there, I vote yes, those application do generate a lot of request and they all represent challenges with big potential. I'm not sure if each one could be as big as welding, but the sum of all them definitively can in my opinion!
@Sebastien @Student with the Robotiq wrist camera you should just teach the object on a simple uniform background. When in production you can look at the belt and if the light conditions are good you should be able to set a high detection threshold so that the part is recognized and the background is ignored properly.
Teaching the object on the textured background is probably not a good idea.
@Bryan our integration coach can help you with that but you will need to tell us more about the parts and the requirements on positioning accuracy. With our FT sensor it is perfectly possible to create path and have them relative to a different starting point. But to really help you, we need to know more about the process. Could you film it show us ? Along with some tech requirements?

- The ROS packages are meant to be used with the gripper plugged in the USB port of the ROS PC, not the robot controller
- Plug the USB of the gripper in the ROS PC controller and follow these instructions: http://wiki.ros.org/robotiq/Tutorials/Control%20of%20a%20C-model%20gripper%20using%20Modbus%20RTU%20protocol
@mvanhout we have an ongoing beta for the dual Gripper, it's in a private section. I can tell you that the official release will be next month. More to come!
