1. Adept Desktop

The main application provided by Adept for robot control is called Adept Desktop. With this application the user can graphically control (instead of a command line control) the robots connected to the system. Also it offers a graphical interface for writing V+ programs and for managing the task executed by the robot. In order for a program to be executed by a robot it must be assigned to one of the robot tasks. Also from here the vision software can be launched and its results can access. For accessing the command line mode, from Adept Desktop the Monitor Terminal button in pressed.
