The Ethernet KRL Interface (EKI Bridge) allows communicating with the rc_visard from KUKA KRL via KUKA.EthernetKRL XML. It enables the use of all Onboard Modules from KUKA KSS controllers without any external IPC.
The EKI Bridge can be used to programmatically to do service calls, e.g. to start and stop individual computational nodes, or to use offered services such as the hand-eye calibration or the computation of grasp poses and set and get run-time parameters of computation nodes, e.g. of the camera, or disparity calculation.
The KUKA.EthernetKRL add-on software package version 2.2 or newer must be activated on the robot controller to use this component. This can be obtained from your KUKA robot supplier/vendor.
