Hey guys,

I was wondering how the force/torque sensor saves the waypoints when recording a path? What is the sampling rate of the waypoints during the recording?

    @Tyler_Berryman , the Path recording feature records the robot's joint positions as well as the tool Cartesian position. The sampling for the joint and tool positions is 10 Hz. 

    In this application, the Force Torque Sensor is used to hand guide the robot while recording the path, using the ActiveDrive toolbar. Thus, you can start the ActiveDrive toolbar, tap the record button from the Path recording node and hand guide the robot on the path you want it to follow. Even though you could use Universal Robots' free drive mode to perform the path, the FT Sensor needs to be plugged in the controller in order to record a path.
