All workhpases
Request current robot pose (or target or calibration transforms)
>> GET_TRANSFORM(CURRENT_POSITION) >>
The robot transmits current pose ("CURRENT_POSITION") through IGTLink upon request. This also works for requesting "TARGET_POSITION" and "CALIBRATION" transforms stored in robot controller.
<< TRANSFORM(CURRENT_POSITION, Current robot pose matrix in RAS coordinates) <<
All workhpases
Request the robot status/workphase
>> GET_STATUS(CURRENT_STATUS) >> ?? CONFIRM COMMAND STRUCTURE FOR STATUS REQUEST

Robot controller sends errors or notifications through IGTLink. Transmitted asynchronously with error text in message body. To be used with limit events, hardware failures, invalid commands, etc.
<< STATUS(ERROR, Code:??:Error name) << | align="left" | Send status code. error list

NOTE: Suggested modification -- Agreed on 9/5/13

Although MOVE_TO_TARGET workphase is currently part of TARGETING, Nirav suggested to make MOVE_TO_TARGET phase an independent workhpase. If we agree, the MOVE_TO_TARGET workphase should be defined as follows:
