RoSys is inherently designed to be used for autonomous robots. The automator actor provides an easy way to write logical step-wise rules for this.

Automation Controls

RoSys provides ready-made UI elements to start, pause, resume and stop automations. See Automation Controls in the User Interface section for an example.

Default Automation

In most cases your robot will have one automation which describes its automatic behavior. This automation can be passed to rosys.ui.automation_controls in your main file. When the user presses the start button, RoSys will begin executing this default automation.


To pause the ongoing automation you should fire the event event.Id.PAUSE_AUTOMATION and provide an explanation as string parameter. The runtime provides a handy wrapper runtime.automation.pause(because='...'). From within an actor you can use self.pause_automation(because='...').
