Hi everybody,
I am student and new to this field and will be using UR3 and Robotiq's 2 finger Adaptive Robot gripper  for my research work.
I explored most part of internet for resources, script manual, UR3 user manual and completed online training given by UR.
I am confused on how should I get started.
Following are my question.
1) UR robot can be can controlled using Polyscope, URscript, remote control using python via TCP/IP and MODBUS protocol and ROS industrial.
I understood the basic idea behind all the four methods, also implemented small programs like moving arm through way points and getting data back from arm.
My preference is to learn to control UR3 via remote control using TCP/IP MODBUS protocol but hasn't been able to find a complete application based program on it (Like complete program for Pick and Place). I am not able to construct logic using small parts of program I have and need direction on how should I get started.
2) Which is the best method among the above to get maximum functionalities ?
3)Also, Can we use commands mentioned in script manual in python based control ?

Thanks in advance.

    What are you trying to accomplish with the robot?

    I want to start with a simple pick and place application. Then later I want to incorporate camera and other sensors do an object recognition, obstacle avoidance pick and place application.
