Software release 1.10.0

Jacob Kastrup

Release 1.10.0 is now ready for download! It's the successive version to 1.9.0. Follow the link below for a guide on how to update the ER-FLEX.

NOTICE: Updating from 1.3.0-1.8.1 to 1.10.0 

In addition to the steps described in the update guide, updating from versions 1.8.1 and older to 1.10.0 requires the user to download and apply the update twice to update correctly. The procedure becomes:

  • Download new version

  • Apply new version

  • Restart robot

  • Download new version

  • Apply new version

  • Restart robot

This applies the update correctly. After updating to 1.10.0, this extra step is no longer needed to update correctly in the future.

New features

The following features are now available with the new release.

Allow users to specify the required precision when calibrating to marker

Previously, the maximum allowed projection error for marker detection was 10. Though, a projection error greater than 1 could cause a quite bad calibration, resulting in unexpected movements of the robot arm. Now the maximum allowed projection error can be selected using the precision dropdown in the block menu:

  • Low precision (error < 10)

  • Medium precision (error < 1)

  • High precision (error < 0.5

This means setting the precision to low will give the block the same behaviour as before the update. The recommended (and default) setting is medium.

Added OAuth as optional login mechanism

In addition to using username and password for logging into the Ability web interface, OAUTH 2.0 can now also be used. To enable it go to System -> Settings and fill in the fields:

OAUTH will now be an option on the login screen:


  • Show dropdown of software versions in system settings update window.

Bug fixes

  • Fixed bug with volume size definition in Check Color block.

  • Fixed a bug where recursion depth was set incorrectly when using included program functions.
