I have a chance to develop a user interface program that lets the user control a KUKA robot from a computer. I know how to program stuff with the KUKA utilities, like OrangeEdit, but I don't know how to do what I want to do. I don't even know what's the "best" language to talk to the robot.
My idea is to control the robot with the arrow buttons, like up/down controls the Z axis and left/right controls the X/Y axes.
Can someone help me here? I know there's a lot of libraries to control the robot even with an Xbox controller, but if I limit the robot to 3 axes I might be able to control with simple buttons.
Edit: Now imagine that i have a routine that consists on going from P1 to P2 then to P3. I know i can "touch up" the points to refresh its coordinates using the console, but can i do it in a .net application? like modifying the src/srcdat files?
