If you want to use conveyor tracking with ABB robots, then ABB recommends you to have the conveyor tracking option in you robot system.

thanks for the reply....
i am trying this as an experiment...
i am using a timed interrupt to trigger a trap routine in which i am calculating the position offset using a simple velocity formula
Position offset = velocity x time
where,
Velocity 'V' = constant
time 't' = instantaneous time
i am calculating the instantaneous time by starting a clock at the trigger of a "sync switch".
i stop this clock only at the end of the program (after completing the conveyor tracking operation).
the program is fairly simple ie., to form a rectangle on a plate which is moving on a conveyor.
i have tried this on other robots and it has worked quite well. so i know its possible on an ABB as well.
all this while i have assumed the velocity to be constant; but now i want to calculate the velocity as well as use the instantaneous velocity value in the above formula , to obtain a more accurate path.
Can anybody help me on this...
