A ‘fake’ actuator that allows to move a robot from the keyboard.
This actuator does not require a connection with external data. It simply responds to the keyboard arrows to generate movement instructions for the robot attached.
When parented to a robot, the user can press the arrow keys to modify the linear and angular velocities (V, W) of the robot.
Up forward Down backwards Left turn left Right turn right
You can set these properties in your scripts with <component>.properties(<property1>=..., <property2>=...).
Kind of control to move the parent robot, in [‘Position’, ‘Velocity’, ‘Differential’]
Movement speed of the parent robot, in m/s
No data field documented (see above for possible notes).
Returns the configurations of a component (parsed from the properties).
a dictionary of the current component’s configurations
Returns the properties of a component.
a dictionary of the current component’s properties
The following examples show how to use this component in a Builder script:
from morse.builder import * robot = ATRV() # creates a new instance of the actuator keyboard = Keyboard() # place your component at the correct location keyboard.translate(<x>, <y>, <z>) keyboard.rotate(<rx>, <ry>, <rz>) robot.append(keyboard) # define one or several communication interface, like 'socket' keyboard.add_interface(<interface>) env = Environment('empty')
