Multiple online controlled robots

Hi, is it possible to control multiple robots using the api and online programming

Aka one robot does loading and another does machining, with the machining program to run controlled by a scheduling backend using the api? 
Yes, this is possible. You should be able to run multiple robots using the API and online programming.

Make sure to install suitable robot drivers. With some robots you may have to customize the driver to properly trigger numbered programs. For example, I believe that on a KUKA controller you can't run a program unless all subprograms are defined at runtime so you need to have a dummy empty file representing the program you are planning to upload.
