Module Contents

class viam.resource.rpc_service_base.ComponentBase(name: str)[source]

Bases: abc.ABC, viam.resource.base.ResourceBase

Base component. All components must inherit from this class.

SUBTYPE: ClassVar[viam.resource.types.Subtype]
classmethod from_robot(robot: viam.robot.client.RobotClient, name: str) typing_extensions.Self[source]

Get the component named name from the provided robot.

Parameters:
  • robot (RobotClient) – The robot

  • name (str) – The name of the component

Returns:

The component, if it exists on the robot

Return type:

Self

abstract do_command(command: Mapping[str, ValueTypes], *, timeout: float | None = None, **kwargs) Mapping[str, ValueTypes][source]
Async:

Send/Receive arbitrary commands to the Resource

command = {"cmd": "test", "data1": 500}
result = component.do(command)
Parameters:

command (Mapping[str, ValueTypes]) – The command to execute

Raises:

NotImplementedError – Raised if the Resource does not support arbitrary commands

Returns:

Result of the executed command

Return type:

Mapping[str, ValueTypes]

async get_geometries(*, extra: Dict[str, Any] | None = None, timeout: float | None = None) List[viam.proto.common.Geometry][source]

Get all geometries associated with the component, in their current configuration, in the frame of the component.

geometries = await component.get_geometries()

if geometries:
    # Get the center of the first geometry
    print(f"Pose of the first geometry's centerpoint: {geometries[0].center}")
Returns:

The geometries associated with the Component.

Return type:

List[Geometry]

classmethod get_resource_name(name: str) viam.proto.common.ResourceName

Get the ResourceName for this Resource with the given name

# Can be used with any resource, using an arm as an example
my_arm_name = my_arm.get_resource_name("my_arm")
Parameters:

name (str) – The name of the Resource

Returns:

The ResourceName of this Resource

Return type:

ResourceName

get_operation(kwargs: Mapping[str, Any]) viam.operations.Operation

Get the Operation associated with the currently running function.

When writing custom resources, you should get the Operation by calling this function and check to see if it’s cancelled. If the Operation is cancelled, then you can perform any necessary (terminating long running tasks, cleaning up connections, etc. ).

Parameters:

kwargs (Mapping[str, Any]) – The kwargs object containing the operation

Returns:

The operation associated with this function

Return type:

viam.operations.Operation

async close()

Safely shut down the resource and prevent further use.

Close must be idempotent. Later configuration may allow a resource to be “open” again. If a resource does not want or need a close function, it is assumed that the resource does not need to return errors when future non-Close methods are called.

await component.close()
exception viam.resource.rpc_service_base.ResourceNotFoundError(resource: str, name: str)[source]

Bases: ViamGRPCError

Exception raised when a resource is not found in the registry

viam.resource.rpc_service_base.ResourceType
class viam.resource.rpc_service_base.RPCServiceBase[source]

Bases: grpclib._typing.IServable

The base requirements for an RPC Service.

An RPC Service is a service that can handle incoming RPC requests. Services that implement the service bases generated by grpclib will automatically conform to this protocol.
