What is simulation mode?
The Meca500 supports a simulation mode in which all of the robot's hardware functions normally, but none of the motors move. This mode allows you to test programs with the robot's hardware (i.e., hardware-in-the-loop simulation), without the risk of damaging the robot or its surroundings.
How to activate & deactivate simulation mode
Simulation mode can be activated and deactivated with the ActivateSim and DeactivateSim commands. The robot needs to be deactivated before Activating the Simulation Mode.
