Re: ADSM kissy-kiss with Legato on a 9714???
If the "extra cost" software they are referring to is STK's ACSLS, then you
don't have to run it on a separate control box, you can run it on the same
AIX host as the ADSM server.
ADSM V3 for AIX will definitely support running the 9710 under ACSLS (that's
what we do). Then
instead of sending commands directly to the robot itself, ADSM sends RPC
calls to the ACSLS software to do robot movements.
But I don't know if Legato supports that configuration or not. If it
doesn't want to share, then you are stuck.
