UR10 CB3 series - Meaning and source of outputs received through RTDE
/ Most recent by matthewd92
I am working on the robot (Universal Robots - UR10 CB3 series) data received through RTDE for quite a few months now. My objective is to understand the source of the values for the outputs received through RTDE as well as the meaning and relationship between the outputs.
For example, the values under "joint_temperatures_0" are received from the temperature sensor present in the "joint_0" of the robot.
I already have found out, that the output "joint_control_ouput_0" is the target current for the motor in "joint_0". This is true because the values under "actual_current_0" and "joint_control_output_0" are same. Whereas there is another output called "target_current_0", for which there is not much information provided and therefore I have the following questions:
1. What is the meaning for "target_current_0"?
2. What is the theoretical relationship between "target_current_0", "actual_current_0" and "target_control_output_0" (obviously w.r.t the joint motor)?
Thank you in advance
